515 & 88

Today marks 515 days clean and sober and 88 days abstinent from compulsive overeating. I feel amazing! I think since putting down the binge food and eating 3 healthy meals a day the spiritual part of the program has come alive in a fresh new way.

The trust I have in my Higher Power has increased 100 fold.

400 Days Clean and Sober!!

Today is my 400th day and 34,621,771 sober heartbeats! Whoohoo!! Whoohoo!! Today I reflected on the fact that I have only wanted to use maybe 3 times in the past year. A big difference for me this time around has been my connection w/ my higher power. I have been reading through my Bible in a year and finished and started over again!

Recently my AA sponsor told me to fully plunge into my OA program.

Each day my sponsor has me write a list of 5 things I am grateful for. At first I thought it was a bit ridiculous and now I am starting to see my life as one big blessing.

Today I am grateful for:

Learning to not be defensive!

For great women in my life who are working a program of recovery that is where I want to be!

For my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

For my wonderful family.

For a food plan that...
