Default Checking In:)

Hi Everybody,
Just checking in to say Hi. I think I have come down with a head cold. I havent been able to really post.
I went to a meeting on Sunday night and it was really good. I have been to online meetings and a phone meeting.
I am committed to my program. I am learning that I am worth this. And if I rely on my HP to help me the battle is won.
I just realized there is an online meeting going on.
Talk to you later, have a great day.
Denise

Hi Denise,

I'm sorry you're sick. Good that you're getting to meetings. How have you been feeling about your program since your last post. You sounded positive.

I'm feeling better than I have in a long time.

Take care,
Charlene

Thanks for asking. I am really good. I have an appointment with a nutritionist on the 10th because of my surgery, I am going to develop a realistic food plan because I need to get my protein in 6x a day, so I am going to ask her to help me develop a food plan.
In the meantime, I am staying away from trigger foods. I working on me. I am reading my literature and attending online and phone meetings everyday, and praying that my HP will lead and guide me.
I think I needed this relapse so that I can see that I am not in control. Control is one of my biggest issues. Unless I know that I know that its not me, then I will always think I got this, you know what I mean?
Anyway, I am feeling better, thanks
Denise

Hey Denise-
Nope, I'm not in control either. I'm completely powerless, but I'm learning to accept it and even like it on some days. It's a lot less work to turn my day and my cares over to my higher power than to try to manage and control everything unsuccessfully. My HP does a way better job.

Marny, you are absolutely right.
Yesterday, I just turned my day over to HP, and totally accepted my powerlessness and unmanageability, and guess what I ate so much less than I have in a long time. Got full faster, and focused on my recovery rather than food.
I am so greatful to OA, and to be here
Denise
