Hi Laura,
The best way to work your OA program is to use the tools of recovery. Abstinence, getting a Sponsor using a daily food plan, meetings, calling and so on.
Also OA is more than not bingeing or overeating it is working the 12 Steps and using the literature.
Good luck in your recovery.

Hi Laura,
I don't attend a lot of face to face OA meetings. I belong to an OA email loop on Yahoo groups. I find that helpful. I read the literature (go to to go to the bookstore). Anyways, on the loop today, they were discussing telephone meetings. One person calls the meeting while she's at work, hits the mute button and just listens. She loves it. Again go to the main site. There are lots of on-line meetings also. And some people actually go to AA meetings instead of OA if there aren't OA meetings around.
Just some ideas for you. I know it stinks to feel worse coming out of a meeting.

I practice 2 programs. I go to overeaters anonymous meetings for support and friendship. I follow the food addicts anonymous food program and have lost 125 pounds. There is a great book called "Food addiction-the body knows by Kay Sheppard. It saved my life and I have kept my weight off for one year now.
