Hi, My name is Kelly and I need a sponsor. My disease has gotten to a point where all I do is eat and watch TV, (work- the only reason I leave the house most days).

Any help, support, ideas would be very much appreciated.

I know these posts are old... Maybe someone reads it anyways...
I'm interested in an OA online sponsor and working thru the 12 steps of OA.
Been in AA for 7yrs, still struggle with substitute food.
I wanted to pm you, Janine, but I don't see the function in my app

Just joined the team I have a problem with overeating and have had this problem for a long time most of my adolescent years and my adult years as well. I am 43 years old and very obese. Hoping to find help with my problem. Maybe a sponsor would help.

Hi,
I'm a longtime member of OA. I have not worked directly with a sponsor for a while. If you are available to sponsor via email, please let me know

I currently have 15 years of abstinence from compulsive eating, have shed 240 lbs. from my top weight of 402, and learned to sponsor by being sponsored in a systematic way called APOAR, Applied Principles Of Addictive Recovery. It includes a plan of readings, questions and writing for each of the 12 Steps. Most of my sponsees have found these to be very helpful. I also use all of the tools, including a plan of eating, to help you reach and maintain your abstinence.

More than anything else though, is my constant contact with my higher power, whom I choose to call God, to whom I have surrendered the very dailiness of my life, thus allowing me to live in abstinence. I give all my problems to God, just as I give God all my joys. I thank God for all my pains as I give thanks for all my triumphs. In my powerlessness, God has given me strength for living each moment.

I sponsor online and on the phone. I am available as a late night outreach cry for help. I currently sponsor nationally and internationally. Email me at mary134e@yahoo.com with OA or SparkPeople in the subject line for fastest return contact. I only check my SP pages once a week or so, but I try to check my email every day.

You are invited to speak to my listening heart.

Hi my name is Ann and I am a very grateful compulsive overeater. I have been in program since March 19,2007.

I attend 3 f2f meetings most weeks. I belong to 2 online OA groups incuding a Big Book Study group and one for 100lb plus losers (or need to lose 100+) I sponsor 6 people by phone and have 2 online sponsees. I actively work this program one day at a time to the best of my ability. I believe that OA IS the "easier softer way" I give service at all levels. I hold service positions in all 3 of my regular meetings. I am on the local intergroup. I am a R6 rep and current WSO delegate for my intergroup. All these things I do and mention because I truly believe service is slimming andf we cannot keep what we dont give away. If you dont want to do service, you probably dont want me as a sponsor. I also believe in using the tools and working the steps.

I am currently only available to sponsor via email

love and peace
Ann

love and peace, Ann
One day at a time!

I request that any qualified and willing sponsors of OA introduce yourself here to sponsor SP members into the official 12 step fellowship of Overeaters Anonymous.

Although one shant list any personal or demographical information they wouldn't want on the open internet, they can give their brief ESH and availability to be a full fledged OA Sponsor.
(Seeing as I just started OA in May of 2009, Im not qualified)

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
Purposely choose your thoughts-what you believe-you achieve-Be careful what you think
