Anyone here attended an Overeaters Anonymous meeting?
I'm dipping my toes in - while there are definitely some behaviours of mine that can fit here, But I've only been willing to check out the online chat meetings... and seriously... some of them make my eyes roll.
I think in some ways the aspect of a "power" or "god" that is greater than yourself is something I don't relate to, like... I know the issue is in my head, is in my upbringing, is in the patterns my life has created, the connections with comfort, with reward, with depression, with hiding, with being alone, filling a gap, filling time... And I guess because I'm not in shared living/shared meals - I don't put myself ahead of others so I never plan for meals, for cooking, for preparations... if I had to cook for a family, if I had flatmates with shared meals... we would make better meals. But it's just me, so I don't.
So I wanted to check - anyone else here tried OA and have any thoughts about it? good/bad/indifferent?
- OA - any thoughts?
