So I've been in OA 90 since March but I've been abstinent for 32 days now. I've released 28 lbs (266-238). In the last 32 days, I've released 12lbs (250-238). It's going well. I'm working on Step 1. Any other success stories? Anyone trying to lose over 100lbs?

What kind of OA are you doing?What's your food plan?

I've lost 93 lbs. The last few are slowly melting away. I would love to be in the 100 lb club, but that will come when my body is good and ready.

This is my experience, your body might work differently. I need to take it slow. I need to give my body and my mind time to adjust. If I don't, I usually end up sabotaging myself. It feels great to be at a healthy weight again. And I've done it in a way that emphasizes the emotional growth I need to keep the improvements. I needed to loose not just the fat, but the need to self-harm. This meant giving up first, the abusive dieting that I used to do, and then the binge eating, and then, finally, the weight.
