I know I haven't said much here but here it goes. Even though my son is very high functioning, it doesn't matter the stress of dealing with it now and the stress of the uncertainty about his future is too much for me to take. I have always been a food addict but ever since we found out about it, my eating has been out of control. Sadly I lost a tonne of weight before hand and felt so much better...and now its back.. and then some (and its been back for 2 years now). I have been struggling to take the weight off for those 2 years since as well and have yo-yo'ed 20 lbs here and there. I used my son's autism as an excuse for a long time to keep eating to comfort myself but enough is enough.. there are no excuses. All the food has done has made me fat and more miserable than I need to be.. and whether my son ends up with a grim outcome or not, I can't keep doing this to myself... my question is, has the effect of your child's autism affected your weight? If it has but found a way to take care of yourself better and lose weight, what did you do? How did you make it easier on yourself and how did you comfort yourself without food or (or booze or anything bad). I just can't keep getting fatter all because of this situation. Its lame and its stressing me out more.
