Janine grew up in a family where sharing good food was an expression of bonding and love, but when she began to experience issues with her sense of identity and belonging at school, she became concerned about her weight. She began dieting but found that after each diet she gained more weight. The pattern continued until Janine's weight gain was beyond her control and so was her preoccupation with food. Now a member of Overeaters Anonymous, Janine has accepted that she is powerless over food and that her life had become unmanageable. With the help of group meetings and regular contact with other OA members, she has experienced not only physical, spiritual and emotional healing but freedom from compulsive eating.
If you are having difficulty with compulsive overeating you might like to contact Overeaters Anonymous. You can find them at oa.org.au. All meetings welcome newcomers and the only requirement for OA membership is the desire to stop eating compulsively.
There are meetings listed on the website at oa.org.au/meetings - these may be face-to-face, online or hybrid meetings.
