Group Description

This is a large, but intimate and safe group of women who are sharing their OO journey on a day by day basis.

The Overcoming Overeating Philosophy



* Compulsive eaters are people whose hands or minds move toward food

when they are not at all hungry. Compulsive eating has nothing to do

with the size of your body. Compulsive eaters come in all shapes and

sizes. Compulsive eating has to do with how many hours you spend

preoccupied with thoughts about what you are eating and what you look

like. The Overcoming Overeating approach does not address eating

disorders; it addresses dieting disorders, the casualties of the diet

industry.



* Compulsive eating may seem self-destructive, but it is always an

attempt at self-help.



* Diets never, ever solve eating and weight problems. Diets cause

compulsive eating.



* Significant change flows only from self-acceptance, never from

self-contempt.



* Food is not the compulsive eater's problem, it is the solution. The

Overcoming Overeating approach teaches people how to eat their way out

of an eating problem.
