Are you convinced?: Read Frequently asked questions and answers pages 18-26.

Now that you’ve been in the program for a week and have taken some actions, are you convinced you are a compulsive overeater? Write your thoughts and feelings about this. Discuss with your 12 Day Sponsor.

Yes, I am a compulsive overeater. For example, last night after dinner I went and got 2 pieces of toast with garlic butter. Then followed that with 3 cookies. And two bags of lollies. And ice cream.

Thing is, I wasn’t even hungry. It’s like if I start eating I can’t seem to stop. It’s like a dam breaking – once I start it doesn’t seem to end easily.

I don’t even know why. But I definitely need some boundaries around food. I need control and I need help.

So hopefully OA will help. I don’t know what else to do.

APART FROM THE PROGRAM: I’m still feeling unwell. I’m at work again today but not really with it. I’m glad I don’t have much work and it’s quiet. I really wish I were back at home in bed.

I’ve got OA again tonight. Perhaps others can give me some answers regarding why I do what I do and how I can stop it.
