"We admitted we were powerless over food, that our lives had become unmanageable"......
In what ways have we experienced powerlessness in our food compulsions?
Have our days been consumed with thought of weight, diet, exercise, planning the next meal or planning to avoid the next meal?
Have we found it impossible, regardless of our attempts, to let go of our addiction?
How does this powerlessness and and inability affect our self esteem?
What are some of your stories?

I'm thinking about making this a step-a-month online group. Hopefully some folks will join and get this up and running. Until then it's just gonna be me, lol.
I'm the mother of a toddler, and even though I live in a major metro area, the real time meetings are scarce. And to be quite honest, the groups are often small.
I struggle with the first step on a daily basis, but I know this is true for a lot of us. I'd really like to hear some other perspectives.
Please join.
All are welcome.
You don't have to be recovered, that's not the point of this. It's about sharing the human side, our similarities instead of differences. You don't need experience in the steps, as this is a step study.
We're all in the same boat as food addicted people, regardless of what our bodies look like, regardless on how we attempt to manage (or not manage) our problem.
