I just wanted to share something with you that has helped me and may help your callers that have a problem with weight and food. I am a member of Overeaters Anonymous. It is an anonymous 12 step program, based on AA, which addresses compulsive overeating and compulsive food behaviors.
In addition to so many other gifts the program has given me, it offers a fellowship of people that share their own experience and recovery which helps us with our own. The program is free, other than passing a basket at each meeting. I have lost over 50 pounds! I have maintained that weight loss for nearly 8 years, without crazy diets, exercise regimes, therapy, gym memberships, pills, doctors, and anything else I had previously used to "fix" the problem. Today I have a fairly normal relationship with food, a normal body weight, and gifts beyond my wildest dreams.
