Back on Track: I am Recovering Food Addict, Back to Step One

Monday, May 27, 2013

OA= Overeaters Anonymous my program choice that is working for me

Step One: I admit I am powerless over food — that my live had become unmanageable.

Spark people is part of my tool of recovery, When I do not track my food, when I am not reading new blogs and sharing strength and encouragement, when I am not stretching my body of adding Leslie walking DVD then that is a sign that my life is becoming unmanageable.

Step Two:Came to believe that a power greater than myself could restore me to sanity.

Spark People is part of my tools of recovery. My greater power that restores me to sanity is the wealth of information that I can read and learn right at my finger tips. I have many, many power of examples to draw strength from that bring me to sanity on Spark

Step Three: Made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God.

Spark People supports me in my choice, by just making information available to me and I make the final decision.

I have lost 1.5 pounds this week and I feel great my mind is at peace. No confusion. I body feel great no sugar, no white flour only whole wheat. So far so good. I have 10 days, abstinence= 3 meals a day no white flour or sugar.
Thank you All for you wonderful words of support and prayers God is doing for me what I could not do for myself.

Have a great week!!!!

    Thanks for your honesty and being willing to share your journey. I have found that SP is a safe place to share my struggles and feel understood and receive support from people such as yourself that are struggling too. We are all making forward progress as we support one another and overcome together.
    My very best to you. Thanks again for your continued inspiration.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I especially like how you wrote that "the wealth of information" is part of the "power greater than yourself." You are right -- all the information and encouraging blogs on SparkPeople IS power. I guess that's why at 4:00 am, up in the middle of the night and very anxious, I'm reading your blog. PEACE!

    Congratulations on making good choices for yourself. Working the steps the Big Book way is how I recovered from compulsive overeating and living in Steps 10, 11 and 12 is how I stay there, gratefully, one day at a time!

    Glad to see you are making good choices. I plan to do the same. I feel I am addicted to food or an overeater too. I looked at the OA plan and it scared me to death. I have been able to do South Beach for quite awhile and was very happy with no cravings. I plan to incorporate that in with my Spark Diet. Good Luck to you!
