Hello Everyone, I'm concerned about my 15 year old son. He weighs 487lbs, I'm not with his father anymore, so he stays at his father for one week then me. His father is biggish 550lbs plus. I am wondering what I should do?

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)

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.
