Florence Overeaters Anonymous -- Welcome to OA!

For info on Florence meetings, see Meetings

www.oaflorence.com - www.oa.org

Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous! We of Florence OA have made a discovery. We learned that we were in the clutches of a dangerous illness, and that willpower, emotional health, and self-discipline were no defense against it. We found the road to recovery here at OA, by connecting to each other and to a Higher Power which gives us the ability to do what we cannot do alone.

If you decide you are one of us, we welcome you with open arms. Whatever your circumstances, we offer you the gift of acceptance. You are not alone anymore. Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous. Welcome home!

Weight Loss and Recovery from Food Addiction is Possible through Florence OA

OA is about ending the obsession with food and compulsive eating in order to lose weight or gain weight to achieve a healthy body weight. We welcome and accept everyone, from those who are morbidly obese, overweight, or plus size to those that are struggling with food obsession, starving, binging and purging involved in anorexia and bulimia and everyone in between. Anyone who is struggling with food addiction, food obsession, compulsive eating, food cravings, out of control eating, overweight, underweight, over-controlled eating, or any other issue relating to food or weight is welcome.

Florence OA Welcomes Those Seeking Weight Loss, Weight Gain, or Support Relating to Bariatric Surgery

OA welcomes individuals who are considering or have had bariatric surgery, including gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and lap band surgery. OA can be very beneficial in supporting the behavioral changes required when undertaking bariatric surgery. OA can support the specialized nutritional guidelines that are required when one has a gastric bypass, gastric sleeve or lap band surgery.

OA welcomes individuals who are suffering from obesity or weight related diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and others. Also, OA can provide support to those individuals who are trying to lose weight to reduce current symptoms or to qualify for a surgery such as knee replacements, hip replacements, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and chronic pain.

OA welcomes individuals who struggle with anorexia, bulimia or difficulty in gaining or maintaining weight. Anyone suffering with issues related to food or body weight are accepted at OA.

Florence OA does not Prescribe a Certain Diet

You Create Your Own Healthy Food Plan

In OA, each member creates their own food plan or diet. We don't tell you what to eat and we support and respect all diets. OA works with any diet you choose, including high carb, low carb, high fat, low fat, carb cycling, Mediterranean, Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, elimination diets, diet supplements, or any other program. Because OA addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of issues relating to food and weight, it can provide support and recovery in combination with any other program.

Florence OA can Serve as a Weight Loss Support Group

OA meetings are similar to support groups where members share their hope and experience. Whether you need to lose weight, shrink a size, lose inches, gain weight, or just end your food addictions or your obsession with food, Florence OA is the place for you.
