Overeater's Anonymous to hold special pre-Thanksgiving event Wednesday

Monday, November 23, 2015

Thanksgiving usually brings excitement, nostalgic traditions and family and friends together. But it also tends to be a holiday that revolves around food consumption. For those who battle compulsive eating, the added stress of Thanksgiving and the abundance of food can trigger overeating. This often leads to embarrassment, guilt, depression and unwanted pounds.

For individuals struggling with various food addictions, especially during the holidays, Overeaters Anonymous (OA) can provide much-needed support and a path to recovery. OA offers a 12-step program that addresses emotional, physical and spiritual well-being as a path to recovery. OA’s members are given the tools to seek and find recovery from compulsive eating behaviors.

This Wednesday, November 25, we'll be holding an event called 'Attitude of Gratitude'.  You can come and hear several speakers share their experience, strength and hope regarding their recovery from overeating and the Overeater's Anonymous 12-step program.

It's a great way to get support and find some hope the night before Thanksgiving. It's from 7-9 pm at Bethel Lutheran Church, 17418 - 8th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155. It will be downstairs in the fellowship hall.

OA members will be available at the event to discuss recovery and give support.
