Overeaters Anonymous meets every Monday

Are you a compulsive overeater? Do you eat when you’re not hungry? Do you go on eating binges for no apparent reason? Do you give too much time and thought to food? Do you eat sensibly before others and make up for it alone? Do you resent others telling you to “use a little will power” to stop overeating? Despite evidence to the contrary, have you continued to assert that you can diet “on your own” whenever you wish?

Overeaters Anonymous meets from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays at the Rim Country Health and Retirement Community Room, 807 W. Longhorn Road (after turning in the main driveway, turn right at the first driveway. The Community Room is in the center of the apartment complex).

There are no fees or dues. The only membership requirement is a desire to not compulsively overeat anymore.

Call the following members for more information: Denise, (928) 978-3706; Mary Jo, (928) 978-4663; Ted, (928-) 951-3362.
