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...

Hi everyone, I wrote here about three months ago about my son Miles who gained a lot of weight during and after the pandemic. At the time of my last writing Miles was 378 at 6’1. Today he’s about 410 and 6’1. I’m completely lost on what to do. He’s eating loads of food outside the house at his fast food job and it’s obviously taking a toll on his health.
I’ve paid more attention to his physical and eating habits over the last three months and it’s gone downhill. I don’t buy snacks, but he fills my pantry with snack cakes and other junk food that he wolfs down every day. It’s like every time I see Miles he has some snack that I didn’t buy. His fitness has gone down the toilet - I can tell it’s taking more energy than it should just to do simple tasks like climb stairs or walk a few blocks. Even getting up from the chair takes a little bit of effort. He’s not depressed or anything, somehow has a vibrant social life, but it’s at the point where he’s gonna have a heart attack if he continues down this path.
Anyone have any advice?

I am aware this site is for overweight children- butt my child is getting close. Jack had been in shape all his life until a few months ago, when he started to put on weight. January 4th he weighed in at 86 pounds and about 5'0 - size 8/10. this was good news because he'd always been close to underweight. Thought nothing of it. mid last month is when i noticed he was starting to get chubby. He wears a lot of slim-fit clothes, and I noticed his pants were a bit tight around his thighs, and his shirt seemed a bit tight aswell. I thought nothing of it, just maybe he'd grown a bit. Now, the 6th of this month there was definitely more of a difference. That morning, when he came downstairs for breakfast, i couldn't help but notice that he had filled out quite a bit. I didn't want to say anything,the last thing i want to do is make him self concious. I hadn't mentioned it to my wife, either. It... (view more)

I wrote a while back about my daughter, Krista, who has put on a bunch of weight since the pandemic started. Well, things have not improved at all since then, and she is now 395 lbs. Every time I try to discuss her weight with her we end up in a fight. She says she is "well aware of how fat she has gotten" and that "she doesn't need me constantly reminding her." But she just keeps getting bigger. I try restricting what she can eat, but she just goes and gets stuff outside the house. I've taken her to the doctor, but she won't listen to them either.

My son has always been relatively fit and healthy, he was active throughout his high school years through playing sport and swimming. Until he left for college last year in September, my son left for college he was 6,1 180lbs and as of last week he is now 6,1 205lbs. I’m not oblivious to the fact that kids go off to college and party, eat junk food etc. I also understand that it’s a stressful time and kids weight fluctuates. However, 25lbs in 6 months is quite a bit of weight, when he was visiting home I didn’t mentioned it (even though it was obvious, his face had gotten chubbier and he now has a small beer gut) until my son asked to go shopping. When he was trying on clothes he acknowledged that he gained some weight and was looking to loose the “freshman 15” he gained because of stress and no access to gym facilities, but when I asked him if he wanted to go to the gym or on a walk he ...

Hey everyone, happy early new year. My son Miles recently went to the doctors office for a year end physical, and he weighed in at 378 pounds at 6’1. Miles has always been a big kid, but I didn’t anticipate him being this big. He’s never brought any attention to me about his weight, but I’ve noticed that simple things like stairs or bending to tie his shoes often gets him out of breath, and it’s very hard for him to find clothes that fit his growing size.
This is bad, but we’ve neglected to go to the doctor during covid for health reasons, and his last physical was at 14 right before the pandemic. He was big then, about 5’7 and 220 pounds. Gaining nearly a hundred and sixty pounds in two years brought alarm to his pediatrician, but not much was said.
Miles’s appetite is humongous, but I never wanted to have him feel hungry or develop some kind of food insecurity so I always... (view more)
