Default Aspie/Autism kids - Parents: do you have difficulty with stress and weight loss?

Hey everyone. Do any of you have problems losing weight because of the stress of parenting a child on the autism spectrum? For me, it's not an excuse: I take full accountability for my fatness! But stress is certainly an explanation!

The difference between a dream and a goal is a DEADLINE!

Yes, I do! Evenings are the hardest for me. I've been doing some good reading, thinking and strategizing on the matter. I'm looking for ways that I can lower my stress in the evenings. I can't control DD's behavior, but I'm trying to control mine. For instance, making simpler dinners makes my evenings easier.
