What is a 100 Pounder OA Meeting?
This is a special focus meeting of Overeaters Anonymous that addresses the needs of those of us who have lost or need to lose 100 pounds or more. We have found that we can identify more closely with those whose physical manifestation of the disease is much like our own. This meeting, however, is open to anyone who wishes to stop eating compulsively.
You are not alone.

What is Overeaters Anonymous?
Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength, and hope, are recovering from the disease of compulsive overeating. You are not alone anymore! We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.

When and How Will We Meet?
The 100 Pounder Meeting will meet Thursdays, 7-8pm in Ann Arbor or online. Our plan is to meet in person once it is safer for us all, possibly at the Church of the Good Shepherd. Until then, we will start meeting virtually via Bluejeans at  https://umich.bluejeans.com/7666436436.

Who is Welcome?
Anyone who wishes to stop eating compulsively is welcome at this meeting; however, its focus remains on managing 100 pounds of weight, up or down the scale. Physical, spiritual, and emotional recovery from compulsive eating is our common goal. Marcy (734-972-6272, text) is the group representative.

Questions?
Any questions? Feel free to reach out, and please spread the word.

This meeting began on Thursday, October 8, 2020.
