Geographics, Hair/no hair, nothing helped me stop eating.
Today I have over 15,000 days abstinent.
I thought OA was going to be a cult, I went to a meeting halfway out the door. Instead I heard MY story and had recovered.
I resonated with the term ' Food Addict'. I Did go through withdrawal. and I only had to do it once.
Aha - If it works for you it might work for me. Worth a try.
Much to my chagrin the day I hit goal weight was just another day.
Our spirituality is based on service.

1st abstinence after my third son for a few years and thought 'I got this' and did not leave meetings.
Thought I couldn't do school and OA, -I Picked school.
Ended up in pain unable to walk much and all the physical stuff. I was scared I would die in my sleep.
Controlling my program got me to 242.
Following a food plan gave me food neutrality.
My life is not perfect but I am not in the Hell I had with the food.
The least of my positive results is my weight loss. My family relationships are so much better. I aspire to behave as a woman in recovery one day at a time.
I know in my heart ' It works if you work it . . with a sponsor.'

Food was my little buddy. Didn't know how to be without it.
In Jr High I controlled my weight but I was an emotional wreck.
I vacillated between managing my food or my emotions but not both.
I had the lap-Band surgery and gained 20 lbs because I was always a grazer, small amounts all the time.
Second surgery for sleeve, same results. just took longer.
Covid was my last food failure but OA on Zoom became my Savior.
I got a sponsor who gently dragged me through the steps and I have some recovery.
My relationships, my finances, my self talk has all improved - ALOT.
Daily 10th step keeps me emotionally present.
