“My name is Carolyn and I am from Tooele, Utah. I was obese for 37 years. I wore a size 20 in women’s clothing. I had several ailments: sleep apnea, oxygen deprivation, hypertension, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, knee pain and some emotional problems.

“Through the 12 step program of Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA), I lost 60 pounds. All the listed ailments are now resolved. I no longer use the C-Pap machine or take medications for these ailments. Thanks to the 12 steps of FA, I am getting physically, mentally, and spiritually better.”

Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous meetings are held at the Tooele Pioneer Museum, 47 East Vine Street, Tooele, every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. The last Thursday of each month the meeting is held at 5:30 p.m. Enter the north door and go down the ramp to the large room in the basement.
