Overeaters Anonymous

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

My girlfriend called me the other day, apparently she wants to do something about her weight, and told me that there's an overeaters anonymous. I had no idea; we're planning to check out a meeting one of these days. I also mentioned to her that there are support groups on SP for compulsive eaters/emotional eaters, and articles too. Hopefully she'll check out the site. The ironic thing is she's the one who told me about Spark over 18 months ago, but I think she only logged on once or twice. I don't see her very often; she doesn't have any kids, and has been very focused on her career and planning her recent wedding. It would be great if we had something like this that we could do together!

On a sadder note, every time I hear OE Anonymous, it makes me think of my brother, he's an alchoholic, has recently lost his 2nd job in as many months and doesn't know how he's going to pay his rent. We're talking about doing an intervention. I'm scared to death.

    I am so sorry to hear about your brother. Will say a prayer for him and your family for lots of strength and support!!

    I attended OA meetings years and years ago and still to this day utilize some of the things I learned there. You should try some meetings, the people are incredible and I was so nervous before my first meeting. It's amazing how they tell all their stories and so much sounded like me.

    Good luck this week, keep us updated!! hugs and prayers, kimberly
