I saw this motivational thought and it made me want to make a poster out of it.
A year from now, you’ll wish you started today.
The funny thing is, a year ago is about when I finished my step work with my sponsor. I have been slowly, but steadily losing weight ever since I joined Overeater’s Anonymous in January 2014. I am so grateful that I walked through the doors to that meeting a year and a half ago.
I AM in that position. I started this a year and a half ago and I am so happy that I did. Coming out the other side, it was totally worth it. I failed so many times because I tried to do this alone. Now that I have a sponsor and many good friends in OA, I understand. I wasn’t meant to do it alone. Trying to do it alone was part of the problem.
Find an Overeater’s Anonymous meeting in your area. Find a sponsor. Do what she says without arguing with her. Even if it sounds stupid, just DO what she says and you will see far more progress than you EVER saw alone. In July 2016, you can be in either two places. You can be in exactly the same position as you are now, or you can be grateful that you started today.
Overeater’s Anonymous does not endorse anything on this entry or blog. I speak only of my personal experience and not for OA as a whole.
