Food Junkies Summit Day 26!!
Marla Marcus is a lifelong food addict who professes that she would binge on drywall. At 52, Marla had the RNY procedure and believes without it she would not have found her way here. While she was pretty much a poster child for the surgery, 4 years out she knew that her problem was much bigger than what she put in her mouth. Marla says she literally had no off switch. On September 12, 2016, she walked through the doors of Renacent, and has not looked back. Her parting words after 21 days there were that she was never going to an OA meeting again because she was unique. Marla just celebrated 5 years of abstinence, attends OA and other 12 step food fellowships upwards of 7 days a week, has been a key contributor since the start of Sugar-Free for Life Support group, and is now working on learning what it means to live a life of recovery. Marla believes that without connection, 12 steps, like-minded fellows, and a higher power, she would be face down in the food. ~ Vera Ingrid Tarman
