Last week I attended a women's conference, where I ran into an old friend I hadn't seen in a couple years. I almost didn't recognize her, she had lost so much weight. "Carol, you look amazing!" I said. "You're so fit and trim! How did you lose weight? What's your secret?"
"It's no secret," Carol smiled. "I'm happy to share. I gave up dieting! I've spent practically my whole life on one diet or another, but I always put the weight back on -- and more. So finally I decided to try something different -- I went to Overeaters Anonymous."
