About the Author
Elisabeth L. grew up in Lexington, Kentucky. She has a son, a daughter, and five delightful grandchildren. She and her husband live in Virginia, dividing their time between Arlington and Midlothian, a suburb of Richmond. Elisabeth joined Overeaters Anonymous in 1976. Although her abstinence has not been perfect, for 25 years she has maintained a weight between 120 and 125 pounds. More important, during that time she has been free of the compulsive overeating that controlled her life for at least 25 years before she found OA. One day at a time, she continues to be gratefully recovering.
