I have 12 year old twin daughters (Phoebe and Emily) who are identical in everyway except their weight. They're short for their age (145cm). Emily is 84lbs and has always been a healthy weight, but Phoebe is 180lbs and has always been somewhat overweight, but now it's getting out of control. She has gained 50lbs in the past year. To be honest, she was last weighed 3 months ago and I think she has gained a reasonable amount since then as her clothes are starting to look snugger. I'm picking her up early from school for a Drs appointment today, so I'll find out just how much she has gained. I'm constantly finding hidden junk food wrappers. We don't by junk food in an effort to help Phoebe, but she still buys it with her allowance and overeats on the healthy options we provide. I can't get her to participate in physical activity and she doesn't seem to care about her weight. I hope the Dr will be able to talk some sense into her, but I doubt that will happen.

My husband and I have been separated for a few years and our ds has gone from chubby to fat to obese. His diet at his dads house is fast food, processed food and high sugar junk food. He complains all the time that he is tired and refuses to exercise and throws tantrums if I don't give him the junk he wants. Now his dad has given him an app to order food and he is constantly having late night deliveries of massive fast food orders. When I asked him about it he said he wants to be like Nikocado but wouldn't explain what that meant. I don't know what to do as usually I'm asleep when he is getting these food orders. Please help me with my nearly 300 lb son!

With Thanksgiving being tomorrow and the holiday season starting, does anyone have any tips for keeping our kids from making pigs of themselves?

Hey guys, I posted on here back in August about dealing with my nephew. He’s 14 and back in August he was 5’4 and 300 pounds. We went in for a check up this week and he’s 5’4 and 324 pounds. I’m really at my wits end here. I’ve stopped ordering fast food and catering to his wishes, but his dad sends him money and he’s loading up on junk food at school and on the way home. Every day I see food wrappers from Popeyes, kfc, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, all of those fast food places. I got a call from the school last week saying that he’s been having troubles getting to class on time - I think it’s due to him not being able to move around that big school so fast. His breathing has become more labored and I’ve witness him struggle getting off the ground and out of chairs. Stairs are a literal no-go as he’s heaving after half a flight of stairs. Whenever I’ve tried to talk to him about it he says I’m fat shaming him.
I don’t know what to do. He refuses to exercise or eat less and the boy is going to have a heart attack if he keeps this up.

Hi y'all! I am Lola, a single mom of one son, Dominic who is fifteen and two months. My Dominic has never been an athletic kid but always stayed active and ate very well. Over the past year he lost interest in taking walks and visiting his friends and has been spending all his time inside on the computer or in bed on his phone. I noticed that his appetite changed as well. Around February he started quickly scarfing down large helpings of food, and then grabbing a few bags of junk and snacking in his room. He rarely changed out of his pajamas and seemed to be uncomfortable in tight clothes. April is when I noticed that he was getting out of shape. He's small for his age, 5'1 and was always under average weight. Well, he started to dress up more and I could notice that his clothes weren't fitting how they used to. His arms were slimmer and his waistline had gotten bigger along with his... (view more)

Hey guys. Just took custody of my brother’s now 14 year old son. Haven’t seen him in a couple of years and he’s absolutely massive. Went to the doctor for a check in and the boy is 300 pounds at 5’4. Doctor is really concerned. Didn’t realize he was that fat, but should have realized as he’s out of breath when we go for our walks. He likes to eat and is always asking for fast food, apparently my brother fed him a fast food dinner nearly every night.
Anyways, I’m a bit hesitant about putting him on a diet as he’s a bit sensitive and fear that he’ll lash out and sneak behind my back. Also difficult as I’m not his father, but will be his guardian for the foreseeable future. Any thoughts?

I am a father of 17 years old daughter. She was overweighted since her age 12, Now she is 535lbs and she is 5'2" tall white girl. She cannot do any physical actvity now, She's using a electric motor chair for inhouse movements and she has to get external support even for standing up from the sittig/ sleeping position. Two servants are helping her to do her activities now. I don't know what should I do now. No any method to bring her to normal status. And she's 17 years old now. I am searching a good boy for her in thesedays, I hope to finish the wedding once she complete her age 18. Need some help to overcome these problems.

Hi guys, recently (3 months ago) single dad here. Father of two, they live with me. I have to admit to being a pretty bad role model, as I am no exercise or sports guy except for random walks, and cooking and baking is a hobby of mine, and I am on the bigger side myself. My boys are not skinny, not fat, but on the chubbier side. After breaking up, they live most of the time with me alone, and that has resulted in weight gain, definitely. I am torn between wanting to do something about it or just being ok with it for now, because they are not that big. I also don't really know what or how to do it. Any inputs?

I'm hoping to find other parents with overweight daughters who can relate to my situation. My daughter, Krista, keeps gaining more and more weight. She's now 425 lbs and still refuses to talk about it or do anything to help herself. She gets angry with me when I try to say anything about her weight and tells me to just leave her alone. She won't listen to anybody.

Hi everyone, here for some advice. My son Allen just turned sixteen and he went for a check up at the doctors the other day. Allen has always been a big kid and I knew that he had gotten a bit larger over the last year, but I didn’t realize that he had gotten this large. He weighed in at 274 pounds at 5’7. During his last weigh in which was about a year ago, he weighed in around 220-225. The doctor had told us to watch what he eats and to eat healthier, but we definitely failed at that.
Allen has a large appetite and is often snacking; thinking about it we very rarely seem him without some type of food in hand. When he comes home from school there’s often a big gulp and some snacks in his hand, often snacks on those packaged donuts throughout the evening and so forth. My wife has attributed Allen’s eating to puberty growth, but it’s very evident now that he has gotten a bit too... (view more)

Hello all! My name is Leah, I have one son named Liam. Liam's dad and I divorced about a year ago and I was granted full custody of my son. So, basically after my husband was gone I felt like there was a hole in my life, so I hope that explains some of this. A few months after my divorce, Liam and I settled into our new lives although we both felt out of place. He was depressed. He started eating whatever I put in front of him, and him always being a skinny kid, I enjoyed watching him start to put on weight. I made it get out of hand. The satisfaction of him putting on weight filled the hole my ex husband left. I was purposely giving him excessively high calorie food and spoiling him with sweets. I'm a big shopper and I enjoyed getting him new clothes all the time which was happening very fast. I didn't care that he was getting very fat and out of shape. He's now gone from about 100 or so pounds to 160 at 5'4. I still love taking him shopping, and cooking lots of food but I don't want him to be unhealthy. Please try to understand and let me know what to do.

Jack update. Turns out it wasn't him who was watching these videos. but thats another story. He's climbed up to 150, now and his doctor has suggested many times that he diets. My wife and I have cooked healthier meals, and got rid of the junk food in the house, however, he's still putting on weight. he refuses to do excersize, and just sits in his room and eats and plays videogames. seeing him now pains me. I don't know what to do.

Just a small update. Jack's Weight continues to climb. we are going through some health insurance issues at this time and are unable to consult with a doctor. Jack now weighs in at 141 pounds (5'1 now) and is getting very large. My wife and I are financially struggling at this time and are unable to keep buying him new shirts and pants. He confesses the added weight does not bother him, however a lot of things have become a struggle. Because of his old clothes now being unable to get around his hips, he's in a cycle of a few pairs of sweats/ t shirts. Everything, however is riding up on him and fitting him uncomfortably tight. his appetite is continuously increasing and his eating has been relentless. Anyways, the main reason i'm writing this update is because I have found out that he has been purposefully doing this to himself. My son has gained over 50 pounds in the last 4 months on...
