This is a quote fro the book "Twelve Steps for Overeaters":
Some of us "came to" before we came to believe. We "came to" the fact that we were killing ourselves with food and hurting the people we loved with our negative emotions. "Coming to" can happen in a quick flash of insight. Coming to believe may take longer.
In many cases, even those of us who considered ourselves committed to a religious faith have decided that we were agnostic in applying that faith, since we continued to overeat compulsively. We thought we believed in God, but we didn't apply the belief to the problem that was destroying us.
I find it so interesting that these words motivated me, in fact they touched me deeply An OA buddy and I have been reading this book together. The book is not approved OA literature, but it is so well-written and goes right to the point.
When I was asking my Heavenly Father to help me, and please point me in the right direction... I remembered that I had been a member of 3fatchicks years ago, so I came to see if I was still a member. I am so grateful that I could start right in where I left off! Thank you 3fatchicks for being here ... and providing me and so many others a soft place to land.
