Turning point

My weight was up. I was pset but not surprised. I eat like I am not trying to lose weight. I have been thinking about my food issues all weekend. I feel like I have no self control. But I am not geiving up on myself. I think onre of the things I need to do is get rid of all of snacks in my house. This place should be a safe zone for me and it has not been.

I am thinking about going to an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. Mabe I need more support than I realize. What are your thoughts on this?


  1. I have gone to one of those meetings before. I didnt have much success as all we did was take turns reading paragraphs in a book and then say the serenity prayer. However, I do know that not ALL meetings are like that and that some people love going there. So you should just try one out. Im glad I tried it even though it ended up not being for me, but now I dont have to wonder if it would have helped, you know?

  2. ugh! i feel like i do that all weekend to sometimes and it ruins my mood! i think anywhere you can get support is a good idea! if you do go let me know how it is!! good luck!

  3. Eating stuff is so hard.

    Good luck and I hope you find lots of support.

  4. I go to TOPS. I didn't feel like I needed support, but my doctor sent me there and said that there's just something about being in a group setting that makes a real difference, even if you don't realize it. I think he's right. I've had success so far.

  5. I'm a fan of what ever works, in a safe healthy way of course.

    Maybe those meetings will click with you, you might find the support helpful or not. What do you have to loose?

    As far as making the house a "safe zone", I do try to have access to some more healthy choices in my house (granola bars, yogart, low fat beef jerky)

    Saying that I think I'm not trying to remove "temptation" from the house as much as understand why the temptation is there for me to overeat anyways. In reality I'm going to deal with eating out, or being at a convience store, or near a snack machine...

    I want to understand my why, not just my what...I'm not interested in isolation but in immuninization.

    being immune to rice cakes is just the foolsfitness way!- Alan
