I have been on program for 2 months and have lost 28 pounds. It is a completely different program than any of the MANY others I have tried. It isn't just a diet, although almost everyone who joins thinks it is when they arrive the first day. There are reasons each of us lives a life of food addiction. OA aids in complete recovery - not just weight loss, which actually becomes somewhat of a side effect to food addiction recovery. It is hard work, but the personal growth and development is amazing

I have been a member on and off for 19 years with varying degrees of success. I cannot find OA members like me. I have never been morbidly obese, but I have binged at night for years. Most successful members have been morbidly obese and have lost 100 lbs or more by restricting sugar and flour.

Worked until my sponsor stopped communicating with me without any warning.

In actuality I go to AA. Same 12 steps which I attempt to practice the design for living, the principles taught in all my affairs. It is simple but not easy to commit to the 12 steps. These 12 steps saved my life, and relieves all my obsessions from eating disorder, self-mutilation and alcohol.

found the "counselor" too subjective. Her response to my honest questions was to berate me in front of others.
Working / Worked
It was a painful experience. the "counselor" did not like my honest replies and search for help and berated my efforts in front of the online group. Thank god it was not face-to-face or I would be quite shattered now. As it is, it's taken me 2 years to seek help again based on that experience.

It is a wonderful program and I would recommend it but I am extremely shy so I'm hoping I can come out of my shell more with this group. The computer makes people like me brave.
