JUST FOR TODAY, ONE DAY AT A TIME

John 3:16 KJV -
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

"If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough" - Meister Eckhart

Welcome to the Team!

You have indeed begun to admit your powerlessness over food and that is indeed Step 1. Congratulations on taking that first Step!

I have had tremendous success with my face to face meeting. I met my sponsor there, and have had wonderful support and made many new friends. That meeting (and others I attend when I can't make my Monday night one) are an integral part of my program. I would find it very difficult to remain abstinent today if I did not attend face to face meetings.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

emoticon Step one is admitting you are powerless over food. Compulsive overeating cannot be controlled by will power. OA has books that you can buy that explain all the steps. I also used the work book. There are also online meetings.

Hi, I'm Heather. I just joined. I have not been to an Overeaters Anonymous meeting yet. I went on the website and looked at the "Is OA for you" page and almost all of the questions apply to me. I don't necessarily binge eat constantly, but eating is an issue for me. It's a constant struggle, especially trying not to eat fast food. I've thought of going to a meeting locally. Has anyone had any success with a local in person meeting?

I recently confessed to my boyfriend and a few other friends that I have a food addiction and that I need help. This is a serious problem for me. I don't think they really realize that. I'm having trouble with my health because of the weight I've gained. I think that is part of doing step 1, right?
