Here is a link to an article in ADDitude Magazine (an online magazine for adults with ADD/ADHD), discussing the interaction between ADD/ADHD and obesity. It turns out that adults with ADD/ADHD (like me) not only are more likely to be overweight or obese than others in the non-ADD general population, but they are more likely to have great difficulty losing weight owing to our particular neurobiological makeup. Come to think of it, that makes perfect sense to me. Problems with executive func... Fri, 7 Aug 2015 21:26:36 EST Molly the Wonder Dog, RIP Last night, we had to have my darling loving soulmate, our 14yo Keeshond Molly Malone, PTS. <BR> <BR> This morning I walked our other dog to the park so I could sit down and cry my eyes out without anyone seeing me. <BR> <BR> I'm just devastated by losing my "heart dog" as a friend of mine says.

I *think* it came out to about 1.5 miles, but I'll have to check the GPS or something to be sure. <BR> <BR> I jog-walked for a while--jog a little, walk a little, rinse, repeat--but couldn't keep it up and just walked a little faster than I usually do. <BR> <BR> Downside--it took me a whole hour, which means I can't always do that, only on my days off. Other downside--Duncan Park is *boring.* Nothing but a billiard... Mon, 28 Jun 2010 13:04:28 EST
