Commitment to FA meetings, meal plan prep, detox from sugar

She Gave FA a Second Chance

Embracing the FA Program in its Entirety Put Paula on the Road to Recovery

When Paula walked into a Food Addicts meeting four months ago, it was not her first experience with the organization. Ten years ago, she had attended a few Food Addicts meetings, had a sponsor, and a food plan, but did not fully commit to the program. She was working full time and raising three children, and attending only one meeting a week. She did not make phone calls, read any literature, do any writing, take any quiet time, or prepare food in advance. Paula soon left the program, thinking there must be an easier way, but she never found another program. Instead, she found herself gaining and losing weight, and then gaining it back again.

Ten years later, Paula found herself in a different place. Her children were grown. She was working part-time. She had a profound feeling of, “If not now, when?” When she walked into her first meeting, she saw only thin people who welcomed her with open arms. At her third meeting she found a sponsor and began to feel hope. Read More…

FA Tools and Other Members Help Margo Stop Using Food to Avoid Her Feelings

Before finding FA, Margo’s first reaction to life was to soothe herself with food. It didn’t matter if she was tired, lonely, bored, anxious, or afraid. Almost before she realized what she was feeling, she found herself reaching for food.

The feelings could be about something as major as the death of a family member or as minor as running late for an appointment. A parking ticket could lead her to a fast-food drive-through. Anxiety about a work issue could find her in the refrigerator at 2 a.m. Read More…

 


 

Help for dealing with bulimia, social isolation, food addiction-Help from FA

Bulimia Sufferer Finds She Never Has to Go it Alone

Woman Gets Over Initial Reluctance to Phone FA Fellows, She Realized it Outweighs Continuing with Bulimia

As a teenager, Susan was socially awkward, and avoided talking with her peers. On school trips, she would avoid conversation by reading or pretending to sleep, all the while appearing fine on the outside, but lonely and ashamed on the inside. In her early twenties, she was better able to converse with people, but had resorted to bulimia, becoming dependent on food to stabilize her emotions. Food gave Susan something to look forward to.

Bulimia and Isolation

On a road trip with her aunt and uncle in a tiny camper with a tiny kitchen, Susan had no control over food, which caused her to feel terrified. When her aunt and uncle were out sightseeing, Susan had a panic attack, realizing she couldn’t use food to ease her stress. She was glad when they arrived at a cousin’s house for a big holiday dinner and she could binge and purge. Although she was around family, she recalls feeling that her family was invisible to her. All Susan focused on was herself and the fact that she had a thin body. Read More…
