So...I have finally admitted to myself (and to others) that I am a compulsive overeater.
I went to the site www.oa12steps4coes.org
and read the section titled "Are you a COE?" I answered yes to almost ever single one.
It has taken me all of this time to admit that I cannot do this alone. I need God, and I need you all.
I attended my first online meeting Thursday evening. Since then, I have attended about 10 other online meetings (about two a day). I am feeling so much better knowing I am not alone, and I don't have to go through this alone.
I am keeping my eyes and heart open for a sponsor to help guide me. In the meantime, my abstinence includes no sugar, no eating in my car, and no overeating. I know that with time, this will change as I change.
Thank you for listening.
