Overview

Letting Go of Compulsive Eating is an inspirational reader used by members of

Overeaters Anonymous and others with eating disorders, substance abuse problems,

or behavior addictions. Anonymous individuals who practice Twelve Step Recovery

decided to produce this daily reader to more fully reflect our experience with dieting

and recovery from compulsive eating. Such collective wisdom helps us to view each

day as an opportunity for happiness by focusing on the reality of today without the

burdens of compulsive eating. We are on a brighter firmer path. Our experience with

dieting is what we first tried to solve life problems and compulsive eating. It is where

we first hit bottom. Often it made us sick and impaired our thinking. We came into

Twelve Step Recovery.

With quotes from Anne Lamott, Camryn Manheim, Bob Dylan, Joan Didion, Oprah

Winfrey, Alice Walker, Aimee Liu, and other notables, past and present, used in

concert with the meditations, this reader brings some of the pleasures and rewards

about truth-telling and arriving at self-truth to the surface. Selections deal with our

desperation and fear, misconceptions about life, and especially, how our ideas of love,

the terrors of love, and romantic addiction have played into our dieting and the

methods we have tried. We talk about what we have tried for control, invisibility,

buying time, putting off or conquering life. We identify 'So Many Lies' about the remedies,

behaviors and methods, and tell about putting our lives on the basis of truth.

We tell what happened to make us stop using compulsive dieting and to come into

Twelve Step Recovery. We share about "Self-Care" and "Building On Identity" - what

we do to practice clear thinking, detach from erroneous messages, clear away selfdeception,

develop kindness toward self and others, be safe, recognize and deal

effectively with attack voices, deal with overwhelming emotions, know and practice

courage, serve, and build identity based on our God-given talents, abilities and

enthusiasms. We talk about love, honor, loving self, loving another, loving the world.
