I can not do this alone and my life is way out of control

I admit here that I can not do this alone. I am no longer in control of my life. Food is what controls me, my emotions, my day, and my health. I know that I need to have control and I am here to learn.


same here    
"i am in the same boat... i just need someone who can be my partner in this... but i cant tell anyone! i would love to have a random person online that can help me daily! but have it be anonymous... i just cant tell people i know! it would ruin my life even more than this already has."

I think your right    
"My addiction is different than yours, but I think that the shame and fear you speak about, about not wanting to have others know is similar to mine. Having someone who can help you understand the good and the bad that you are facing is really helpful. In nearly 92 days of sobriety I believe that accountability is what has helped me. I was able to find a sponsor and it has made a wonderful difference in my life. Things are still hard, I have to go to work everyday at a job I don't care for, money is still tight tighter than I would like and I am still wondering if God is there, but by having someone I ahve to report to my actions, that I want to report to has helped me slowly give up the desire to act out in my primary addiction. Now I am still finding taht rebellion in my heart a lot in other ways and I need to work hard at rooting it out completely with the Savior's help. You are both in my prayers and I want you to know that you are loved by a Heavenly Father and Savior who knows you personally. That has taken me a long time to come to terms with, to be able to say it about myself but it has been a life changer. previously I could say it all day long verbally, but didn't feel it in my heart. Now I think that love from God is growing and I hope to have one more day of his grace

Lots of Help Available    
"I've been a recovering compulsive overeater/anorexic for 2 years through the Overeaters Anonymous program. I'm a facilitator for our local AR meeting too. I highly recommend OA! It's for anyone who has ANY eating disorder, whether overeating or under-eating. I listen to phone meetings 3 days a week. You can just listen and/or participate in it. It's completely anonymous if you don't want anyone to know who you are. If you go to there is a phone list that's printable that I maintain with another OA member. It's really handy! I also Highly recommend the daily meeting at 1:00 p.m. titled "Hour of Power". You can also listen to the daily recording of the meeting. It's very spiritual, which means that they talk about a Higher Power. It's definitely not LDS but the concepts are very spiritual. It's my personal favorite. At the bottom of the 2nd page is a list of recorded meetings that you can call into. The Hour of Power meeting is listed there too. The phone number is different for the recorded meeting than what it is for the live phone meeting. Just call the number, enter the code and follow the directions that will be told to you in the recording.
Also, there is the website that has a list of local meetings and other info. It's a great program! I've been maintaining a 125 pound weight loss for over a year. I have not been perfect but I try very hard and find a lot of success with AR and OA.
