    Oh, I so agree about “Discomfort is distraction.” That really is the crux of food choices for me. When I was overweight, my feet would ache, and I had a hell of a time trying to figure out which clothes inmy closet fit me anymore, but was always too busy or distracted to just get rid of the ones that didn’t. I lost weight with a good diet and lots of weight lifting. Lately I’ve lost a lot of weight breastfeeding, cuz you know, almost all ADHD meds are contraindicated during breastfeeding. Wellbutrin isn’t but I had to stop it because it dried my milk up. Oh boy, was I a joy to be around during that time. I think I permanently lost a friend during that time because I said exactly what was on my mind. He had it coming to him anyway. In that respect, my ADHD helped me avoid association with a person who frustrates me, with or without my ADHD. Toxic people, you know.

      Thanks, Aiona, for your perspective. I love when you comment because you always bring a point of view to the discussion that I can’t.

      Thanks for reading my blog,
