Wonderful news!

Welcome!

Nell - picking up the 500 pound phone to call -- LOL!

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

Thank you!

I went to the meeting and felt welcomed. I have my newcomer packet and phone numbers. I also have three women willing to be my sponsor.

Beginnings of hope...

Thanks again!

Keep going to meetings and get a sponsor!! It really is hard to reach out for help, but always remember that when someone helps you, they are also helping themselves. In most weight programs, people hit goal then go about their business. In OA, they keep coming back, partly so they can keep the gift, and partly to help new people. Your group will become a family, all in it together. It starts with meetings, getting phone numbers, and picking up the 500 pound phone to call.

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.

I joined yesterday. I'm going to my first meeting this morning. Feeling scared and hopeful at the same time.

I'm 54 years young. Married for 28 years to my best friend. We have two adult children and a grandson. Until October, everyone lived with us along with two cats and three dogs and a parrot, in a small house! Everyone has moved on, so now it's my husband, dog and me. I'm ready to focus on myself and getting healthy.

I've read some OA literature, I'm a big reader, and I saw myself in many of the stories. I know community is necessary, but reaching out is difficult.

Wish me luck and success!
