Hello everyone. I'm new to the board and new to admitting I have a problem with overeating. Well, I've known awhile, but I'm finally looking to do something about it.
I've Googled OA meetings and found a few near me. I have no idea what to expect. I've been to AA meetings before, but the alcohol part didn't really apply to me. I completely related to everyone at the meeting, EXCEPT the alcohol part. I have all of the other 'isms if you know what I mean.
I think OA is exactly what I need. My eating seems to be spiraling out of control. I've gained an enormous amount of weight in the last few years. Twenty lbs just in the last few months. (I was already overweight, but after my hysterectomy, I quickly gained twenty more lbs.)
What do I do? Where do I start? How often do you go to meetings? I'm desperate to change.
