Default Hi everyone, pretty new to OA.

I'm Lyn, coe and food addict. I am 27 and have had probems with food since childhood. I have been in OA for five months and I am no further forward than I was before. I realise this is due to me not using the tools on a daily basis. I had a 'sort of' abstinence during the month of January, I still ate trigger foods but thought I was in control. I must have been eating less because I shed about 13lbs during that month. Then it was gone as quickly as it came and I am worse than ever. I suppose what worked before was starting every day reading For Today, making a food plan which I texted to my sponsor, making a gratitude list. I just can't seem to motivate myself into getting back into the routine.

Where I live in Ireland there is only one face to face meeting a week which I cannot always get to. I started online meetings about 10 days ago.

I have ordered a lot of lierature off the site and have to wait for it to get through customs which will hopefully be next week. I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster the last week or two one minute I think I am gonna make it and then when I am eating my trigger foods I think nothing will work for me.

Hi, Lynn. Welcome
Sounds like you're taking all the right steps to get back on track. Understand that it can be difficult, but you're worth it.

Im brand new in OA. I think I am not feeling much, just going through the motions. It is my first month, but I haven't binged once. It's been 10 days! This is really amazing. I think after the month when I can weigh myself I will feel either better because it is working or worse because I have hit the lowest. More power to you.
