Default New to OA

Hi, I'm Christine and I'm a compulsive overeater!
I just started OA last week and so far I like it. I am optomistic but realistic.
I am taking one day at a time with a new found seriousness. I know I can't think about my days too far in advance. I am a planner..I tend to make a menu for the entire month and then by day 3 fall away from it.
I now know I can't do that to my self. I know they talk about meal planning but for me I can't overwhelm myself too much.
Anyway..thought I would drop in and say hello..
Christine

Welcome Christine! I'm diong OA too, since 2/15/05. I'm feeling like I really have "come home" and so grateful for what I've found through working the steps and doing the other footwork.

Head over to the eating disorder support forum (the one that the OA forum is under) and answer my questions of the day

Welcome, Christine!
I like your idea of planning, but it sounds as though you need to take things one day at a time.
I love the names of your children, by the way!

Hi Christine,
I giggled when I read that we are the same weight, have simular weight goals and I too started a new weight loss journey within the past week. I have a son who just turned 1 in March. He inspired me to change my food choices and to lose weight. I've lost 50 pounds in about a year just eating healthier. I like the principles of OE and enjoyed the meetings. I want to be healthy and active during his childhood. I want to be around, period. Good luck.
