My buys turned 11 last Sunday and they had their annual checkups yesterday. I had called the doctor and told him about my concern about their weight so he ordered blood tests. Yesterday we went in. The boys are 58” tall. Jamile weighs 172 and Jamile weighs 193, At Christmas they were both fat but now Jamar is so much bigger. They don’t look like twins any more. The doctor examined both boys and talked to each. Jamile says he wants to be a fireman and Jamar a football player. The doctor told them they need to be in good shape for those jobs and to get plenty of exercise and eat healthy. That’s all he told them about their weights. Then he told them to leave the room. He told us the boys lab work was normal but they’re much too fat. He recommended referral to a dietician. The doctor knows my husband from a softball team they used to play on before Covid19 and he told my husband how much... (view more)

After not having classes since last March, my son Lane's 7th grade starts in person learning tomorrow. He's very enthusiastic but I'm worried. Yesterday we went shopping for school clothes. He's been wearing sweatpants and tee shirts for a year. None of his school clothes from last year fit. We ended up getting him size 54 jeans and men's size 4X polo shirts. I was surprised. He and my nephew Mario have been spending all their free time lifting weights to get ready to play football. I know they gotten bigger,, but I had no idea how big.When we got home, I weighed Lane. He's 307 lbs at 5'2". Mario weighed himself too. He's 16, 5'9" and 360.  Lane is so big compared to a year ago. I'm praying that school goes OK for him.

My son who is 13, weighs 236 pounds and is 5'6. He will not stop eating or gaining weight. He now does not go outside, run, and is to lazy just to walk to the bathroom. He will hold it until it hurts. When I'm gone, I realized he sneaks food. One time, half of a contain of ice cream was missing when I got home. Does anyone know what I can do? thanks

I went to Saima's house again, recently and we went off to the park. We went on the seesaw her side was for too heavy we couldn't get it off the ground! At one point we had 7 people all trying to lift her side, but her side wouldn't go up.

Hi everyone, I’m Drew. My son is 17, 6 feet tall and about 265 pounds. He’s always been a huge kid, very large and wide frame for someone of height, a thick and stocky build. I never paid much mind to it because he was always a larger kid and his weight never seemed to impact him. He’s relatively active, likes to go on hikes and is working with the emergency medical department. While it was obvious that he was quite heavy, I never would have suspected that he was this heavy. Does anyone know how to address this issue, when his weight doesn’t really impact him negatively? It can’t be good for his health.

Update: While it looked like it was on the bright side, jack has managed to gain another 14 pounds since last month and now weighs 112 pounds and is still 4'6. He looks huge and wears 14 h jeans (the average for his height is 10 reg.) and he needed a soccer uniform 3 sizes larger than last year's for a comforatble fit. While he did not gain as much as he did 2 months ago, I am still worried about how round he is getting. The other day, as I mentioned in a reply to my older post, when he came walking downstairs without a shirt on, you could see how large he'd gotten. He was bigger than me and my husband. I was shocked,but he seems happier than when he was skinny, as I mentioned before. He told me that he feels much more comfortable. He's back to online school, which also scares me, and he lays in bed all day except for his game days. I want to help him, but my husband and I have tight schedules, and do not live close enough to have relatives bring him, and are not comfortable hiring someone. What can I do for him. I don't want to see him become obese or get diabetes.

Ike very worried about my three boys’ weight gain since March. Their mother’s cancer went into remission in January of 2020, which is obviously great news, but also means that we have to be very careful with COVID as she still has a weakened immune system. Our boys have all been very understanding and we have worked hard to make sure they can keep in touch with friends and family (through zoom and select very socially distanced meetups) as we go to school and work online and limit trips out of the home.
My older two (ages 16 and 15) have always been a few pounds overweight, last January the 16 year old was 5 foot 11 and around 180lbs, and the 15 year old was around 5 foot 9 and 165lbs, but were active and mostly healthy kids and the doctor wasn’t all that concerned. My 12 year old was always our skinny kid, and was 5 foot tall and around 90lbs.
Now, parents out there know that... (view more)

hello again,
its been a little over a month and the diet is completely gone. we have all slid back into our old eating habits and with the holidays maybe even worse than normal for junk food. new clothes brought for Christmas already show signs that they're too small. I really feel at s loss with what to do. Covid has made it so much harder to eat healthy, think healthy and exercise. It also means none of us are really connecting with anyone but each other. My boys screen time is almost all day. I try to make them put the screens away turn off rhe tv but whats the point when they cant go outside?
I feel like my youngests weight has been increasing far more rapidly since he got insulin. I dont know why. help please.

How is everyone here doing? I have to admit the last couple months with gyms, schools and university closed, working from home, having both boys home has led to bad habits for all of us. Winter season and no gyms open means not a lot of exercise, and snacking and eating takeouts and other things high in calories is quite common.. Both my sons and myself have gained some weight lately, and it's hard to resist all temptations to eat and snack when at home. Anyone experiencing the same challenges?

Hello, my name is Aneesha and I’m worried about our twin sons, Jamar and Jamile. They’re 10 and turn 11 next month. 6 years ago, when my husband retired from the U.S.Army, we became foster parents for the boys and after 2 years we legally adopted them. Up until the summer of 2019 both boys were slender but then they started to get a little chunky . Last February before COVID they had their physicals and Jamar weighed 87 and Jamile weighed 88. They looked a little chubby but no problem since they’re a little on the tall side. Then the lockdown hit and their school has been online. I’m away at work all day, 5 sometimes 6 days a week. My husband has been “Mr. Mom” with the boys, supervising their schoolwork and other activities. All their youth sports have been cancelled and so we agreed to let them play video games as a break from schoolwork. The problem is they’ve both blown up since... (view more)

Hey, i was on here previously talking about my daughter and her worrying weight of 256lbs. I had given an update that she had met a boy and had started to lose weight for him. In the last year and 5 months she had lost 87 lbs and is much more able to do simple things such as walking up the stairs. She is nearly at a "normal" weight however over the past few months she has gained about 10lbs which is unexplained because she has been eating and exercising the same. But overall its positive. Hope that you are all well and can reach this point.

Hello. My name is Corinne. My child, who we'll call jack, used to be on the brink of underweight. In the past three months he has put on about 20 pounds. Keep in mind he's four foot eight, and his father and I were only four foot three. He's been growing consistently, maybe an inch every month since the start of puberty 9 ish months ago. I haven't spoken to him about his recent rapid weight gain, but I did notice he was eating a lot more. Should I be concerned? He was 77 a month ago, but is now 98, putting him in the overweight category. He's stayed this way since last week, ant hasn't grown but the regular 3.5 or so inches, and went from a size 8 to a 12 husky. He's also been a lot more sedentary, as he won a new console right before school's last shutdown.
