1. I understand your plight.

But Weight Watchers does NOT fixate on food, but focuses on BEHAVIORS instead. Food is always handy, but the choices we make is what matters. WW from my experience these past 9 years never made me feel guilty or shameful. I was in control of my behaviors. Being back to Free Lifetime has had its challenges, but I have gotten through them with WW.

My husband has been having numerous health issues this year as well, with 4 hospital trips lasting days, and finally getting the pacemaker sooner than later. The stress on me has been great. My food choices whole eating out have been in accordance to my plan and tracked everything. Stress often causes me not to eat much at all, but have control at least. I walk a lot, which is a stress reliever.

I have no experience with Overeaters Anonymous. I am also sorry your husband's health has not been good. Taking care of you is important so that you and your health do not break down. There are groups that can help you come to terms with behaviors, learn healthier eating habits, better cooking habits, as well as make lifestyle changes that help alleviate stress and work for you. For me, WW is a lifestyle, not a diet.

Good luck.
