I went to my first OA meeting last night and was very inspired. I have been following Atkins (lo carb) since 6/10/00 & did very well. At one point I had lost 168 lbs (308 down to 140), but I started bingeing 9/30/01 & basically haven't been able to stop. I haven't gotten on a scale, but considering I was a size 8 pre-binge and am now a tight 14 tells me I've gained 25-30 lbs. I'm back OP today and brought my OA newcomers packet and 12 Steps/Tradition book with me to the office to read during lunch. I plan to attend another meeting Sundat night.
linsue - I'll be glad to be your buddy. PM me anytime, or like teach93 said, maybe we can get this board active again. I don't know what I would do if I worked in a bakery; it's all I can do to avoid the vending machines at my office!
teach93 - I'm a binger as well so I know how you feel. PM me anytime you need a shoulder.
