My daughter Phoebe is 4ft 7" and her weight is literally off the charts. It can't be displayed on a bmi age percentile growth chart. The doctor says she is in the 100th percentile and has a bmi of 60. She weighs 258lbs. I believe this means she is morbidly obese. She weighs 100lb more than me and I am 4ft taller than her and have an on the cusp of obese with a bmi of 29.8. I don't want my daughter to die before I do.

Hi everyone, I need some advice. I have two sons, Ben who is 16 and Spencer who is 17. Both of them are quite overweight, Ben being 220 at 5’8 and Spencer being 245 at 5’10. Whenever I try to bring up their weight they both will refuse to talk about it! They were always larger children but over the last year they’ve gotten quite large. I don’t know how to address the situation or have a solution that could work in mind. If anyone has any advice please share!

My daughter Grace has a problem. She is 12 years old in 250 pounds. She eats nonstop. The only problem is that she has no idea, and at this point she really needs to know. Most of her weight is stored in her belly making it extremely flabby and have “rolls”. Her condition has gotten much much worse recently she has major trouble walking and can’t see or touch her toes, she also needs help getting dressed, getting in bed and getting in the car. Because she doesn’t know she wears cloths that do not flatter he such as tank tops and bikinis. She never exersizes despite me constantly telling and asking her to. I lead by example and run 12 miles each day and work out at the gym. She doesn’t eat bad she just over eats. Her friends are really sweet and don’t say anything but It’s very obvious. When she lays down she holds her belly and when she walks/attempts to run she has to hold it very tight... (view more)

my Daughter Emery has an extremely rare condition to where her body thinks she’s starving. Because her body is under the impression she’s starving it keeps EVERYTHING. Her brain is also constantly sending out signals that she’s hungry which leads to constant stomache pain unless she eats. We used to try so hard to keep it under control but her dad died last year in car crash (hit by drilling driver) ever since her dad died things have been really hard for everyone. I’ve stopped really trying and my daughter has turned to food. The pounds keep packing on and I won’t lie that she’s huge. It’s not her fault at all, so I don’t blame her. We keep only healthy food in the house aside from a box of oatmeal raisin cookies that we keep locked away and are eaten as special treats on fridays. She wears men’s shirts and exercise is really really hard with her body. No one at school teases he because... (view more)

Hello everyone. I need some advice about my son Mav. Pretty much all his life he has been relatively skinny, but since 2017 has started, I have noticed that he has put on some weight. June of 2016, Mav was 5'7 and 150 pounds, and June of 2017 he was 5'8 and 200 pounds. A 50 pound gain in a year. The doctor told me to watch his eating habits and encourage him to exercise more. Recalling the past year, I haven't noticed him eating more at home, and my cooking is very healthy. The only unhealthy food that we will eat is Friday night pizza. My other son, who is 16, will yo-yo between skinny and stocky (for various reasons that I am aware of) but not fat. So I've paid close attention to his eating habits over the summer break and he has not done anything out of the ordinary. However, he's been very lazy and has gained I'd say close to 10-15 pounds in 2 months. He says he's not eating out of... (view more)

Need advice, my daughter is 13 and weighs 280. She's always been stout and always been on the heavier side. She is sensitive about it, do I risk making it worse by saying something? Im a big girl at 5'6 and 225 but Im comfortable and healthy, her father has always loved big women and even told me when we first met that i was beautiful but needed to gain weight and i was raised by parents who pushed being skinny, big girl's were ugly. I was 180lbs, size 12 at the time and felt huge and ugly. My ex set a great example that big girls are beautiful and skinny isnt all that. Our only concern was being healthy and confident and she isnt. We divorced 5 years ago and im afraid its traumatized her. Question, she is the middle child and highly sensitive, im afraid i could make it worse but i want to say either own it or fix it. Do I get tough and quit tiptoeing around it? advice?

After only a week of football practice, my son Paul was injured last Saturday. He ended up with a broken knee and other injuries. He was operated on and will have to remain off his leg for 8 weeks. Heʻs very depressed and discouraged. Iʻm unhappy for him and sad because he actually lost a couple of pounds during his first week of practice (the first time heʻs lost weight---two years ago he gained 33 pounds in 2 months and went from thin to obese and developed a huge appetite and itʻs been a struggle for me to keep his weight under control ever since). My sister-in-law and nephew spend all day with Paul while Iʻm at work. Heʻs supposed to use crutches but heʻs having a tough time getting used to them.

I need some advice from parents whose sons have played football. My son came home from school today and told me that the football coach for the 7th grade football team wants him to play next school year (he's finishing 6th grade now. He's tall and heavy for his age (over 5'4" and 161 pounds). He's been in swimming, which has helped him control his weight gain (he has a huge appetite). What will the effects of football be? Can anyone tell me if you think he should stay in swimming or play football? Thanks.

My daughter is only 13 and she weighs 220 but is only 5 feet 2 inches. Her belly jiggles like jelly whenever she walks and when she wears her bikini to the pool, her belly and legs jiggle like crazy too so it is hard for her to play and swim. It is hard for her to stand up whenever she is sitting down and we have weighed her every night since she was 10 and she has gained 100 pounds since then. She eats about 5 full meals a day not including snacks. Any advice?

We are making progress with my son Paul. During the past month he only gained 2 pounds. Having him join the local Swim Club at the Boys and Girls Club has been a good experience for him. In the past year he grew 5 inches taller but gained 84 pounds, so this past month's 2 pound gain is great improvement. It's been a struggle but it seems to be working. Parents: don't give up!

Hello, I am very disappointed in my daughters, 10 and 12. My 10 year old is 4'11 and 385 and my 12 year old is 5'5 and 350. They are not very active at all. They just sit and home and eat food. They need me to write notes for them to skip gym class. I always get dirty looks when I pick them up from school. They've told me they wanted to do nothing but eat. They've been sneaking snacks into their rooms. My 10 year old can't see her feet or even fit in the tub. Please reply I need to know what I should start doing.

My 13 year old daughter has been gaining a lot of weight this school year. She came into 7th grade at 5 foot 3 and 225 pounds and now she has gained an extreme amount more. Myself and my younger daughter (4'11 110) have been watching her. We weigh her every night and last night she was 325. We've gotten calls from the school about her size. She's been eating meals constantly. She makes her own meals (which might not be the best thing.) She eats about 5 eggo waffles a morning with her sister. She packs two lunches filled with fatty snacks around the house. She's having trouble walking and I've noticed on weekends she usually just sits on her bed the whole day on her phone and eating her sweets. I've discovered a stash of zebra cakes, honey buns and brownies under pillow. She's been taking the food in the cabinets and keeping them for herself. I feel like if she keeps eating more she won't... (view more)
