For Today (8/1)

Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.

Appearance is not everything, but it does tell the world how I feel about myself. As my days of abstinence increase, my appearance improves.

Before OA, physical attractiveness presented problems I didn’t want to deal with. As I practice the steps of the program, these problems diminish. I gain spiritual fitness, mental health and physical wellbeing. Giving one hundred percent of myself to the tasks before me each day, and applying the principles of the program in all my affairs drives out both the obsession with food and the preoccupation with my looks. I lose weight without making it my primary goal.

For today: OA promises me threefold recovery as a result of working the program to the best of my ability. This is the only way I know to attain both outer attractiveness and inner worth.
