Hey everyone, I’m a father of three boys, 17, 14, and 12 are their ages. As a single father, I’ve never been one to say no, which has led to all of my boys to be on the heavier side. My oldest is in the 400s while the two younger boys are in the 300s. It has been a minute since I’ve had the chance to get them on the scale, so I’ll have to update their weights once I do.

Hello,
I have to admit I feel a bit lost at my situation. My wife and I split up about two years ago. At first we were able to do regular visits then I had to move for work and now that I've moved back the change in my son is horrifying me. He has always been a chubby child, maybe on the fat side of chubby. Now though he is definitely fat. From everything I can tell his mother gives into his every food whim. He has tried tantrums on me and at first I tried to say no but they got so severe I ended up giving in. He's a 230 lb kid having a full blown tantrum. That's a little scary even for me as that's a full 70 lbs more than I weigh. I have been doing my best to only cook healthy meals. At first he wouldn't eat them but now he knows it's all he's getting. However, he has told me he hates coming to mine because I'm mean. I don't want to lose my son, I feel I've already lost so much... (view more)

Hello! With December and christmas celebrations, how are you with overweight kids doing it? Still keeping some eye on diet and eating, or just letting loose for those weeks? I am kind of conflicted on what's good - I don't want to ruin the holidays, but at the same time.. Well, you know..

I am the mother of three lovely boys, age 16, 14, and 9.I am mostly worried about my middle son, Jack.
My two oldest have always been on the heavier side, especially actually my oldest. Jack was always what I would consider chubby but his weight has been gradually going up over the past couple years, something the doctor has noted.
But over the last six months it has ballooned really bad, and it is painful for me to see. Jack was always very into sports, especially football. He also started high school in September, not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Last june, at a doctor's appointment he weighed 162lbs at five foot five, making him both tall and a bit bigger then he should. His older brother weighed Around 170ish pounds and was 5 foot 8.
After noticing clothes that fit him then, and were even new at the time no longer fit, a month and a half ago we decided... (view more)

My son Lane and I met with people at the Pediatric Obesity Clinic last Friday. Lane had a complete physical (he had blood tests Thursday). The good news is that he shows no signs of pre-diabetes. His blood pressure and cholesterol are normal but that means he still needs to lose weight. He's 4'8.5" and weighed 218, 130 more than he should. I was...

My son, has always been a bigger kid but never really fat until now. He joined the school swim team 2 years ago, and now the weight is just coming on. At 6 foot 4, its easy for him to disguise his eating as necessary, but what once used to be maybe just a soft belly, has turned into one that really sticks out. He started this year at 170, but has ballooned to 200 and im scared that he will only get bigger.

Hi all, just an update on the situation with my son. I saw Jason for a few days last week and I was quite concerned. He’s definitely much larger than when I saw him in August, I can tell that he’s been eating a lot. His health seemed to have decreased, I noticed that he has been getting more winded going upstairs and bending over to tie his sneakers. We went on a hike as the weather was quite nice and it was obvious that he was struggling somewhat. I’ll admit that the hike wasn’t the easiest but it wasn’t the first time he’s done that hike with me.
When I’ve spoken to my wife about the situation she says that she cooks about half the time and they eat a healthier takeaway on the others. She has lost a noticeable amount of weight over the time period without exercising so I know that the food mustn’t be that unhealthy, contrary to what I knew prior. She and I have both talked to...

Hello everyone, I'm back again with another update on my son. Just to reply to some old comments, I started restricting video game time and making him go out to exercise but something tells me hes not actually exercising. He doesn't come back sweaty or hot, and is usually wiping away crumbs. I've asked but he wont say what he was actually doing. Hes still getting bigger, its hard for him to squeeze into the car now. Hes now opting to sit in the back so he has more room. Whenever something embarrassing happened(liking popping a button or breaking furniture), he was definitely embarrassed but never did something about his weight. My brother and my father tend to make passing comments as well about how tubby he's getting, but he doesn't seem to mind. No family history of obesity, most people seem to discourage his hefty weight. He was pretty chubby before his mom passed, but has since ballooned to an enormous size. Any suggestions on how to tackle my boy's expanding waist.

Hey everyone, I've been on this board a few times in the past reading about other parents' struggles with their obese children and how to manage their weight, but I think it's finally time for me to post something; my son's weight has spiraled out of control lately, and I would really appreciate all the advice you can give.
I'm writing about my son, Isaac. He's 16 years old and is 6'3" tall. He's always been a big guy (one of the tallest in his grade) but recently he's been getting pretty chubby. I just found out a few days ago at a doctor's appointment that he was already 312 pounds; just last year he was only around 260! Over the past few years, his appetite has steadily grown; nowadays, he always gets seconds for dinner and sometimes even gets thirds. I also suspect that he's been eating fast food behind my back; he has a car now so he can drive to fast food places on his own... (view more)

Please see my previous post for more info.
My granddaughter went back to school recently. She was very excited for the open house and the school encourages the whole family to come so I went, along with my daughter, and granddaughters other grandparents. While we were there, you could see just how large my granddaughter (I’ll call her Ava) was compared to the other children. Her other grandparents approached me with their concerns. Her grandfather is very into running, and he said he tried to get Ava to run with him, but she said it hurt her stomach too much. She was winded before they even got started. When she’s with them, they also try to make her healthy meals, but she won’t eat it. We don’t know what else to do. We want her to have a good childhood without a huge belly in the way. My daughter knows this. I’m sure at her pediatric apoitmnets it has been brought up.
Does anyone have any good fun workouts for little kids? Also any good places to shop? She never gets the cute clothes because the children’s sizes aren’t usually big enough.

Just to shed some more light on my situation. My son is around 290 lbs( and getting bigger. His stomach hangs out of his clothes. Hes had some mishaps because of his weight. A button popped at dinner and he bent down once and split his pants. Hes broken some flimsy furniture before too. I have an old baggy sweatsuit that is huge. XXl sweatpants and xxl sweatshirt. He wore it all the time because it was baggy and now... its tight. His stomach hangs out of the bottom and his rear end peaks out the top. I dont know how he got so big he outgrew sweatpants but I'm so worried. I've tried just about everything to get him to lose weight but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help?

I need help. My son has gotten way too big recently. His mom passed away when he was younger and since then hes...filled out. Hes now 16 and almost 300 lbs and I dont know what to do. He eats and eats and eats, gets seconds at dinner, buys snacks after school. Hes hidden food from me before and he refuses to exercise. I try to get him to go for a jog, but he just wants to stay inside and play video games. I'm worried about what will happen if he gets any bigger. I have to buy him new clothes because he gets too fat for his old ones but still wears them around the house, so I have to see his buttcrack and fat belly every morning. He gets puffed after walking up and stairs and I think hes starting to waddle. He doesn't listen to me no matter how many times I try to restrict his food. He also has a job at pizza hut and I think that's contributing to it, as I find empty pizza boxes in his car and recycling bin constantly. I just want him to be healthy and not so big but he seems to be on the fast track to obesity.
