I was recently invited to meet with members of Overeater’s Anonymous in Darwin to find out more – only to find out they are a world wide organisation that started in LA. The foundations are based on Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step program, & the group meet weekly to discuss how they are coping with the everyday challenges with food.
No….the members aren’t all obese, & this isn’t a food plan, weight loss or calories counting group. Anyone who has a problem with binge or overeating food & wants to stop, is welcome. It’s free to join….physical & emotional support is given at meetings, & you can even “Skype” other members all over the world! It does have a spiritual/higher power association – so that you connect to your inner being & chosen higher power to give you strength to overcome your challenges.
To find out more go to: www.oa.org …….or ask me for info
or you can meet the group on Monday evenings at 2 Smith Street Darwin – Christ Church, Harbour Room at 7:30-8:30pm.
It may be just what you’re looking for to face your food demons!
I am happy to assist you with you individual foods plans as required, just ask at your next appointment.
