Memoirs of an ADHD Mom
Kate wants to lose weight and needs help

Okay folks - this time I'm going to do it. I'm going to get in shape! (And all of you who know me can stop snickering now) I really am. I'm not just turning over a new leaf...I'm turning over a whole new tree.

I am overweight. I compulsively eat. I don't really think of consequences...I just eat whatever looks good at the moment. I really have zero self-control when it comes to food. From what I hear, this is common to adults with ADHD. I also hear exercise is supposed to be good for the ADHD brain, and so..the tree. I'm making a promise to myself to exercise at least an hour a day. I know it's the right thing to do and I know I'll feel better about myself. The thing is, I have such a hard time sticking to my promises. I go all gung ho for a day and then before you know it I'm sitting in front of the TV with that party size bag of Fritos.

So, help me. How do I stick to my promise? How do I make myself do what I know is right? Is there any hope for me?

Make certain to post your helpful tips for Kate on our Facebook page.
