Overeaters anonymous is a free support group run by members, for members. I have been to a few meetings and it’s quite powerful, you can feel the suffering in the room. It scares me to see old people still struggling, I don’t want to be like this forever. There are 12 steps to follow, some people get really into it but I like to just look at them as guidelines. I am struggling with the “higher power” aspect of it; I am not religious. However, they emphasize that your higher power can be anything. I just don’t know what mine is quite yet.
