I just got back from my Saturday meeting. We had a newcomer, so we went back to the first step, which is admitting we are powerless over food.

It was good to talk about this admission and how it affects your mindset. It’s only once you admit you have a problem that you can start to fix it, after all.

I also weighed in for the first time in months. It wasn’t as bad as it could have been, but it wasn’t good. I’m in the obese range, which I knew. So my goal to start with – one day at a time – is to get back down out of the obese range to start with. I’ll worry about getting to my goal weight later. One step at a time.

Hmm…I’m starting to see how OA works.

The thing I like about OA is I’m not alone. When I share I can be honest, because others are being honest. I can face reality head on at meetings, which is what I need to do. I can ask for help, because it’s okay to do that.

I think I’ll keep going to OA.
