I just weighted my daughter and she weights 600lb. Her girlfriend who I am now legal guardian of is as big at 500 lb. I dont know what to do. My daughter hips and butt is so big she can't fit through door ways without turning sideways. Both girls help each other with basic tasks like changing clothes or putting on shoes.

Do anyone have any advice for how to stop from sneaking food or hiding thing and how to address these issue? I find food in my sons room almost every week and he say that he buys it so me and his dad shouldn't care and it starts huge fight between him and his dad so nothing gets done. Does anyone else have these types of fight with their kid?

My daughter Phoebe has gained 55 lbs in the past year. I noticed some weight gain before COVID, but since COVID the increase has become more rapid. Looking back, she was a healthy weight until she was 8, when her BMI started gradually increasing. I managed to get her on the scales yesterday and she weighs 230 lbs. She is only 5'2". I have two other daughters (one older and one younger) who have always been a healthy weight and neither me nor her father are overweight. We did investigate whether there was a medical reason for her weight gain, but everything was ruled out. As I suspected, she eats too much and exercises too little. I can't get her to move and we limit the amount of junk food in the house, but she still overeats on healthy food and it's hard to control, especially now she's a teenager. We try to talk to her about it, but she just tunes us out.

My daughter Emma has put on lots of weight recently at the start of 2020 in January she was (5,5 short for her age really) and weighed 169.4 pounds and now as of yesterday after I begged her to get on the scale she weighs 194.6 pounds! And as I work quite a lot with long hours she is in the house by herself and I come home to find the cupboards raided and all of the crisps and chocolate and cakes eaten in the house I’m worried and am not sure what I should do.

My child is only 14 years old and is 250 pounds. All she does is watch tv and eat food the other day I found food rappers under her bed in her clothes. My daughter gets out of breath a lot she struggles getting up of the floor and getting out of bed I have to help her. She has broken 4 beds jumping on then and 3 toilets sets. I told her she needs to lose weight but her bad keeps giving her food and I tell him to stop and he ain’t having non of it. I told her the other day we was going to the beach and she was wearing a bikini and she is quite big and I had to help her off the floor. She is only 14 and a size 22 and she wears clothes what a size 10 girls wear but she says she like it. I know it’s wrong but I get embarrassed I know I shouldn’t but she’s big and wearing bikinis and tank tops. I need help I try and tell her but she doesn’t listen.

My daughter has gotten really big but I always ignored how big she was getting. I did not realize how big she was until I watched her need to catch her breath after just climbing a couple stairs. Now her girlfriend lives with us permanently and she is also huge. I weighted them the other day my daughter weights over 500lb and her girlfriend weighs 425lb

Hi everyone, I’m concerned about my son Adrian. We saw the doctor today and he’s 275 pounds at 5’10. He was always a chubby kid but this year in particular he was looking very heavy. I knew that he was in the low 200’s this time last year so this is a lot of weight to gain in a year. He is eating loads more compared to the past, he often eats seconds and thirds during supper and when school was in session he would stop at the store and buy junk on his way home.
I’ve encouraged him to eat less and move more, but there was always a level of resistance with exercise and he has spent this quarantine on the couch doing online school, playing video games and eating non-stop. If I buy less junk food from the market he will go out more and buy junk food.
I asked him about his weight on the drive home and he brushed it off. It is very evident that he let himself go physically and I do not know what else to do.

do anyone know a website like this that is bit more active? I feel like I benefit from talking to people with same problems and ones I talked to were so nice but there must be some forum that is used bit more. I have trouble talking about these things in real life because no one I know has these problems with their kids. it is hard to find something like this, especially because of my bad English so if anyone has any suggestions or advice. thank you

I am very worried about my 15 year old son. Two years ago he was pretty skinny, 13 and 5 foot 1 (160lbs).Around this point he started visiting with his father (who I separated with when he was young).
His father was always chubby, and at this point must be over 400lbs. Now he has custody on the weekends.
Over those two years my boy has just gotten bigger and bigger, and I am very worried for him. His health has gotten really bad, he struggles to go up more then one flight of stairs, getting winded, and has complained of back pain and leg pain.
I have always tried to cook healthily and keep my kids active, though he never was big on athletics, when he is with me I try to get him out on his bike or at least walking, but it is getting harder and harder because of his size. Last fall, at his pediatrician appointment, he was five foot five and a scary 262lbs, I knew he was... (view more)

Hello everyone
I'm new here, and I'm looking forward to meeting some other people.
I have two sons, a 15 and a 11 year old. I am a bit concerned about their weights. My oldest son weighs 493lbs (223kg), and my youngest weighs 321lbs (146kg). The covid lock down isn't helping with their weight too. My oldest son complaints about pain in his knee, and back. Just recently his stretch marks are hurting, and in the last 1-2 years, my oldest son has had rashes/sores on his skin, due to his skin rubbing together.

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)
