Mill Creek OA 100 Pounder Speaker Meeting
Speakers who have lost 100 pounds tell their stories.

Both parents alcoholic so I grew up in a dysfunctional environment.

My father killed himself rather than stop drinking. 

I treated my body like garbage can for drugs, alcohol. and food. Sober at 31.

Even though I was around the 12 step community I was outside as I was still eating compulsively.

I was in and out of OA for years. Couldn't do it my way. I didn't need meetings I 'Lived' the program. Not.
I completely forgot what meetings did 'for' me 

After 2 seizures, multiple brain surgeries and a commitment I ended up surrendering to the OA Program.

Today I am working to be more God centered than self centered. I am of service and have a quality of life I can rely on.
