Spring 2018 - Welcome to my SparkPage!
I have now been a "sparker" for over 10 years!

After struggling with my up and down weight for many years, I am now at a healthy maintenance weight. I joined Overeaters Anonymous 5 years ago and discovered that I am a compulsive overeater. I am powerless over food, and need God's help to stay away from binge-ing, compulsively overeating, severely restricting calories, and over-exercising.

I am now working the 12 Steps with the help of God, my sponsor, and my regular meeting group. I have learnt so much about myself and God since joining program! And I am on my way to changing, not just my shape and my size, but also my whole life.

As of today - 03 June 2018, I have now refrained from compulsively overeating for 5 years!

One Day at a Time.
