I’ve decided it’s time for me to find a Sponsor for OA.
I’m not really sure how to go about it. So I’ll ask. At least three of the members at my group have been doing OA for a long time, so hopefully one of them should be able to help me.
I know I’ve got a long way to go. I also know that while changes may happen fast or slow, I have a lot of progress in front of me, so to get to my goal weight will take time. My BMI is just over 33, so I’ve got a lot to lose.
I’m starting to see OA as a lifetime part of my life. I’m likely to be a member for the rest of my life. I’ll need it. I figure with a decent plan and a Sponsor I should be able to get to my goal weight within a couple of years.
However, getting to my goal weight will be just the beginning. Then I need to maintain it. That’s the thing I never managed to do before. I could always lose weight. But then I’d find it again in pretty short order! I’m great at finding weight!
So here’s my plan: I’ll work the steps. I’ll organise accountability with a Sponsor and a good, maintainable food plan.
I’ll also find other things in my life to look forward to, besides food. I can see now that for a long time I’ve been looking forward to food and not much else. My life has been anything but rich and fulfilling. I’ve been lonely, and tired, and not enjoying life much at all.
So I’m going to start looking forward to non food things in my life. I’ll make a list of things I look forward to. I’ll reclaim my life, and build it.
