I am here to say that I can't do this alone. Having and committing a food plan is something I must do daily if I want to hold on this way of life.

This is it for me. I cannot do the food by myself. I have a disease that is cunning baffling and powerful. It wants me if not physically dead at this moment, it wants me spiritually dead, emotionally dead.

I lived in misery before OA. All my energy went into trying to convince everyone that I was happy, satisfied, ok.

I am becoming who I am meant to be. I have joy and sorrow in my life now. I get experience and live life, real life. And that is better than any fantasy I have ever imagined and tried to live in.

If I forget that I have this disease my life goes away, and all the weight and misery will be back.

I needed to say this.

I am a food addict. I am powerless over food. I have a Higher Power that I stay connected with by working this program. This Higher Power can relieve me of this obsession one day at a time. So I will let Him. I will start by writing down my food plan for tomorrow.

    I always say that a sign of strength is reaching out. and you are reaching out.. you do not have to do this alone, that is for sure.. you are strong and you can do this.. and asking for and admitting that you need help is a sign of strength.. ... God Bless

    Sorry you feel this way. Sounds very painful.

Please look up or watch Dr. Mcdougall on youtube.

He advocates a whole food low fat plant based way of eating for life. You can forget about pejorative labels like addict and eat as much food as you wish as long as you easy on plan. The plan is starch based and very satisfying.

There is no need to wonder - most so called food is in fact very addictive.

Dr. McDougall, Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. Barnard and Dr. Campbell all have so much to offer.

They have changed my life. I believe they could change yours.

Best wishes. Rosalie
