Vitality in Your Wallet
WRITE ON AN INDEX CARD…
A Contact list:
What am I grateful for today? 5 things?
What can I do besides eating (or other harmful behavior)?
My inspiring purpose? Why does it matter?
KEEP IN YOUR WALLET.
Contact list: people, friends, on-line support, e-mail contacts, phone meetings and phone numbers, spiritual supports? What could help?
What am I grateful for? Think of at least 5 things: OA fellowship, dear friends, housing, healthy foods, freedom from food obsession, blessings and gifts from other people, money to purchase adequate food, a body that works? What do I take for granted?
What can I do besides eating? How can I restore myself in healthy ways? What would be fun? Check out Ideas for Self-Nurturing. What is euphoric but non-caloric?
What is my inspiring purpose? What does it mean to me or do for me? Why bother? How will my efforts at creating a healthy lifestyle benefit me and other people?
Overeaters Anonymous slogans or any of my other key messages? One day at a time, keep coming back, easy does it, but do it. Develop skill power so you don’t need will power!
Write the above information on a 3”X5” index card (that is folded in half)
and keep it in your wallet.
Refer to it when you feel like overeating
or practicing any other addictive behavior.
