I am an addict. As such, it is crucial that I set boundaries to keep me from falling prey. I engage in encouragement and support regularly and seek the same. In order to not fall victim to my drugs of choice yet again, I must be active in the fight against my addictive, maladaptive and isolating natures.

That's where SparkPeople comes in these days, along with OA and working the 12 steps, one day at a time.

THEN I STOPPED FOR ALMOST A YEAR- GAINING HALF THE WEIGHT BACK.

Until I eventually began an abstinence in OA.



My Program:
1. Create an entire menu of staple meals that I love to eat and that are easy to make/prep in advance.

2. Pay attention to portions. Count calories. Measure/weigh food to become aware of how much I eat--NOT to restrict--but to encourage mindfulness.

3. Alternatives. Some foods are too hard not to overeat. I can eat them in moderation (occasionally) when out, but for home, I'm seeking alternatives to satisfy me that are not "diet" foods.

4. Be active daily. Usually a walk, for me and Jack (dog). When my breasts are smaller, I think I'd like to try running.

5. Seek support. I'm delighted to have found SP and hope to find others in the SF Bay area to be active with.

Other Information:
Ultimately, I'd like to be 80 pounds lighter than I am as of 4/24/12.

Thank you for the link! I looked at it.
I remember reading the book 'Shades of Hope', also about / based on OA. I thought it was very thought-provoking.
