I went to my first face-to-face (f2f) OA meeting yesterday, 9/5. It was awesome, and had many attendees. I isolate myself so much that I hadn't attended a f2f meeting in over 8 years. I realized and shared with the group that I never had a st... Read more

I have come to the realization that for me, I am powerless over food. Diets donít work for me Ė or they do, but then they donít, and then Iím back to square one, eating away until I am numb. I have decided to return to Overeaters Anonymous (OA... Read more

Well I put off weighing myself last week because I felt like the scale was going to show numbers higher than the week before. I had a relatively good week, I just felt bulkier. I felt like perhaps I had built muscle from the strength training ... Read more

Well I weighed myself today and the scale showed I went UP 3 lb. I am not sure how that happened, I had a great week - but I did have 2 glasses of wine at a party last night, and I tend to retain water when I have any alchohol. So I'm going to... Read more

Today I feel better about things. I don't feel so down on myself, and I feel there is hope. I am embracing life, and will embrace the challenges along the way, too. I have my pedometer on and am watching the steps add up. I feel like I am do... Read more

Today I have really been feeling down. I have been working out, and bring my daughter to a baby swim on Saturday mornings. This past class my husband videotaped, and I saw myself in a swimsuit for the first time in at least 10 years. Oh my go... Read more
