Me at 240lbs. . . I know it's hard to tell, because it's not a full body shot.

So I had made this page originally when I was pregnant with my second child (who is a year old now) and I was trying so hard just to change a few sentences etc. . . But it wasn't working. . . And I guess because I'm in a different place now than when I was when I originally created this page. . .

My name is Nathalie, and I have ADHD. For those of you who don't know what it is (and a lot of you probably don't), this means I have a problem stemming from how neurotransmitters are released in my brain, which lead me to have problems with self-regulation. What it means for weight loss is because of some issue with dopamine in my brain, I don't get the feeling of reward and satisfaction when I do something. It means self motivation is extremely hard. It makes life a pain.

I'm currently still messing around with my meds and my dosages (Which can be a pain as well), so that's one thing in my life. But it's also the driving force for me to lose weight. Being active is supposed to help me produce more dopamine (at least a little bit) and help my ADHD. I know the lower blood pressure will help with keeping me healthy as I take my meds. And I'd like to feel better about myself.

I know that this rambles, and I'm sorry. I always wish to do a beautiful post about how I came to a decision of how to lose weight, etc. But my meds have worn off, and I'm all over the place right now. And the fact is that I've been struggling with weight loss for so very long. . . I'm just having another go at getting it off, I suppose. . . I hope this time I'm successful.
