Hello, it has been a crazy beginning of the year for all of us. DH works in the medical field, and I work in retail management/marketing for a supermarket so luckily we are both still employed and not facing down this crisis head on like so many people.
Lots of ups and downs. My oldest has basically reached his goal weight of 150lbs (at 5 foot 8) so we are all very proud of him.
That said, this virus and lockdown has hit right when our kids would normally be the busiest with sports and activities, and while we have been stressing maintaining an active lifestyle (playing basketball, biking safely, etc) both me and DH are working longer and more unpredictable hours so we can't really check up on my middle son's (Jack, 14YO) activity levels.
In early March, he did come to us and ask for help with his weight, which was a surprise as before he had been very argumentative about ... (view more)

Hi..
I am writing over a concern over my son considerable weight gain in his freshman year in collage. He has had weight issues through High School. But I was surprised when came home early because of the Covid and school closing. My ex wife says he told her he has gained about 80 pounds. she does not seem to be as concerned as I am. looking for any advice.

How are you doing during those times we have now? Things going like normal, or is it hard to encourage physical activity and good eating habits? Here, luckily going for walks is still no problem, but school and university is closed until further notice.

Hello, this is my first time posting here. My daughter is somewhat chubby (5 feet and 140ish pounds). My problem is, she seems to take food whenever she is left home alone. Somehow she is still losing weight (she was 170 ish pounds) but I’m not sure how. Anyway, what do I do about her sneaking food? A few months back I found evidence of her hoarding snacks in a drawer in her room. Every time she’s left alone, food turns up missing. She’ll go through half a jar of peanut butter, or half a box of cereal, or bread, in one sitting while me and her dad are not home. I even think she’s eating the sugar and flour. I don’t know what to do.

I’m worried about my child Jenna. She’s only 15 but she weighs 705 pounds! I don’t know what to do anymore. Anytime I take food away from her she physically fights me and I don’t believe in hitting my children so I just give her the food. She’s only 5’3 and weighing what she weighs is outstanding. None of here clothes fit in the slightest and she eats food all day long. I need some help so if anyone could shoot me an email that would be great. My email is jack63359@gmail.com

Hi Jesse, just read your last post. Has Lane seen the doctor since he was 150 pounds? If not a visit is in need once this coronavirus thing goes away it gets better. 243 pounds won’t “even out with height”. At 150, sure, at 243, most likely not. Lane would have to maintain his weight and be 6’3.5 to not be obese. Will he get that tall? Probably not.
I know you don’t want to push Lane into something similar as what your Mom did. You claim that you are concerned, which I’m sure you are, but what are you doing about it? Are you waiting for the “tide” to roll out? I’m going to tell you from experience, at this stage it’s not going to work.
You’re not going to detriment a child by encouraging him to eat less and move more. You will detriment a child’s physical and mental wellbeing by letting him to continue eat unhealthy amounts of food and get even more morbidly obese. (view more)

I am worried for what to do about my son Jeongguk. He is 6'1, very tall for our family, and I think he weights about 270 lbs but I think it could be more. All his family told him that he needs to eat healthier, exercise, and mostly eat a lot less than what he does. It is very sad to see my youngest child do nothing but eat all day when he is at home. His friends comment on it and play with his belly to tease him, his older brother do this too, but he does not seem to care. He gets out of breath going grocery shopping,climbing stairs in our house and tying his shoes even but when I point it out he just ignores me. I talked to his girlfriend one month ago, she said he told her he wanted to lose weight. This made me happy and I thought I would see him change but he still eats a lot and I think gained even more weights.

My son Oliver has always been a very picky eater and thus weve always had problems getting him to eat healthy, and unfortunately the food he does like is very calorie dense. Hi appetite has ballooned since he became a teenage, as expected but the increased calories really hasnt done well for him. Standing at 5 foot 10, he started HS at about 170 pounds, a bit chubby but nothing we were too worried about, but now 2 years later, his weight has gone way up, 250 pounds. I really dont know what to do, he no longer fits in any of his clothes and has a massive belly now.

Hey everyone, I posted about my son Isaac a few months ago (and forgot to follow up, sorry!). He actually stopped gaining weight as quickly once he joined the football team, so I thought he’d be able to lose the weight eventually. However, that wasn’t the case; ever since football ended back in November, he’s been gaining weight even more quickly than before! I think the football coach weighed him in at 320 during the season, but he’s definitely a lot heavier than that now, maybe even over 350! I honestly wasn’t even aware of how much he had gained because he always wears really baggy clothes, but about a week ago he was walking around the house shirtless and I noticed the stretch marks all over his body and his belly jiggling everywhere, noticeably bigger than I remember it was back in the summer. When I tried to press him about his weight, he just said that he was “bulking up” for next... (view more)

I posted a while ago about my 14 year old son Jack who was, at the time chubby-to-overweight (five foot six, 179lbs). This was in late November, and my biggest worry at the time was his rapid weight gain.
Since then, I have been trying really hard to motivate him to lose weight, but he has been hesitent and has often lashed out.
To make matters worse, his appetite has gone through the roof. On the rare occassion we order pizza, we will order two large pies for the five of us (Me, DS 16 who is on a successful diet so isnt eating too much, DS 9 who is skinny as a string bean, and DH who is, admittedly obese) which I think is a perfectly fair amount with maybe a few slices to put in the fridge for a snack later. But Jack will devour his 2 pieces, then whine until we allow him more, and then talk about how he could eat a whole pizza himself. Same with everything, nothing is ever... (view more)

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)
