Well, I am home from the meeting and I think it is going to change my life. Everyone was so nice and welcoming.. and everything they said, I thought "OMG! That's ME! That is what I do!!!" I feel like FINALLY someone understands me. My mom and I talk about weight loss and she says "Oh, just eat less and exercise more." Well, no kiddng, EVERYONE knows that. I am so grateful that these meetings discuss the emotional issues as well. I am working on the first question for HOW.

Congrats on your first meeting! I say look online regarding the veggie aspects and use the skills that are useful to you. Not everyone is the same, or needs the same things. I know when I went to my first meeting I was a bit freaked out, but overall, it was a good experience. Way to go! :)

OA is a great place to be with others who understand our food addiction! Way to go!
