Overeaters Anonymous offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions. 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 overeating and to carry this message of recovery to those who still suffer.

Region III of Overeaters Anonymous seeks to aid those with the problem of compulsive eating through the Twelve Steps of OA, and to serve and represent the OA groups in the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.


Believe me, the webmaster GREATLY regrets the operator error in this recording. First I told Elena she would not need to use the lectern which was about she same height she is, that the microphone would pick it up, then I felt inclined to move the microphone to get a better feed. That lasts only the first minute and 30 seconds, I assure you, and you can hear her. Then there’s another unfortunate noise at 2.5 minutes. Again, my fault. But Elana’s too good for you to miss because of the quality of these sections of the recording. Sit back, enjoy, and know it’s my side of the street and I’m going to keep it cleaner in the remaining recordings for the cruise and Assembly. (While I’m apologizing, Roni whose recording preceded this one was on Friday evening, not Thursday.)

Whether you get on the cruise ship tomorrow or not, you can go with us. Some of the recordings will not be up until after the cruise is over, but here is our fearless leader, Roni B, telling her story last night at the Assembly.
