I just found out about OA this week when I picked up a used book that I thought may be helpful in my never ending weight battles. It was called 'Twelve steps for over eaters'. As I started reading it I realized it was a program. Eventually they talked about OA. I did an online search and found the website and read a lot of the info they had posted....so now what do I do? It seems like this may be helpful to me, but going to a face-to-face meeting may not work. I am too embarrassed to tell my husband I found another weight loss strategy...he's heard that a million times...each ending the same way.
I did go to an online meeting today and just "listened", but still don't know anything about the steps or how to start. I am really confused. It seems like a lot of the program has to do with accountability to someone else or a group of others. I'm just not sure how to get that. If I go to a meeting will they tell me how to get started or give me some literature that explains this? Just how does it work?
Sorry for such a long post, I am just trying to figure this all out. I am so glad to have found something that seems to understand how hard this is, that will power (at least for me) won't cut it, and I need serious help. Thanks for any help guys!
