O.A. and bulimia

Hi, I've been a member here for a long time and this is my first post.

I've recently stumbled upon the O.A. website (Overeaters Anonymous) For those of you who are not familiar like it, it is based on the A.A. (alcoholics anonymous) support groups. My question is this: Have any of you that have tried to recover from your bulimia attended any of these meetings?

I mean, it seems to make sense. Many bulimics are compulsive overeaters or suffer from binge eating disorder and since O.A. deals with these issues it seems like a no brainer. However, I am hesitant to check it out since a thin 20 year old girl probably won't be taken too seriously at an O.A. meeting.

So has anyone here given any thought to attending these meetings, or perhaps already have?

(Edited out)

I'm interested to hear your comments on these issues. Thanks.
