Re: New Needed to share

Welcome home, (((Meghan)))
For me, nobody can understand my pain like another compulsive overeater. My pain is their pain. And my triumphs are their triumphs. Because working this amazing program of recovery, I/we can achieve the recovery as appears in the Step 9 promises.
But it is a process. I can only take one day at a time, doing what I can for today, and turn over the results to my Higher Power. For today, I can read some recovery readings or join an online loop (, I can call my sponsor and go to a meeting. I can write a POE (plan of eating) and make a POA (plan of action) and simply make a start in the right direction.
If you're new or still suffering from compulsive eating, and you still haven't found the recovery that you're looking for, we suggest that you keep coming back until you do find it.

like you, my pride and sham(plus allot of weight gain, has kept me from returning to meetings. I can't face all those who saw me when and in recovery now that I have been in the food again for almost a year, and gained my weight back. I hope this online group will provide support. we can support each other. hang in there. we're in this together...again pam
