I am a physical therapist by trade, and I'm in great shape. Two and a half years ago I moved from sunny California to New Hampshire with my wife and four (yes, four) sons as I got the chance to open my own gym up here (a personal dream of mine). It been great, the gym that is, but the dreary weather makes all of us miss home.
My oldest son, Jackson, is 16 now, and was especially angry about the move as he was leaving all his friends behind, many of whom he knew since grade school. The twins, Luke and Liam (14) also were pretty annoyed, though my youngest Aaron was too young to be really distraught as he was 9 at the time.
Anyway, before the move they all were active, healthy kids. None were overweight. In fact, up until a few days ago I was under the honest-to-god opinion that they were perfectly fine. I walked in on Liam changing his shirt, and couldn't help but notice he was ... (view more)

Hi. I have a 13 year old daughter who is obese. She is about 5"3 1/2 in height and her pant size is 10 but I don't know if it is in Woman's or Juniors. She is an average athlete. She runs miles in 8 minutes and 30 seconds or less.My daughter weighs 142 lb, but in the summer she lost 5 pounds and seemed to gain it back.i am very worried for her, even though she has many friends and is almost at the top of her class.i tried to talk to her about her weight but she keeps shutting me down. Lately she's been sneaking food and lying to our faces. I just want her to be skinny or at least 110 pounds. I myself am 43 and weight 165 and my husband who is 50 weighs 170. My older son weighs 200 lbs but is only 5"7. He is 17 almost 18 and is very lazy. I just don't want to see my baby girl go down that same road. Please help!

actually, I'm not the parent ... I'm the child. I am 16 years old I weigh 250lbs and I am 5'3 1/2" I have an underactive thyroid and I hadn't been informed of it until a few years ago... I also have sleep apnea which doesn't exactly help either I try to take my medication for my thyroid around the same time every day but it never works that way and I do not use my c-pap at night either but I have been on diet after diet and I never lose a pound! I am so desperate I feel like my fat is suffocating me and I have been researching for residential placement for overweight children because I cannot do this ! its so hard and I cant stay motivated I have a problem and I need to fix it I wouldn't worry as much if I didn't have medical problems due to my weight such as sleep apnea which was caused because I gained weight from my underactive thyroid I had no idea about. I am never made fun of... (view more)

Hi everyone. I'm writing about my daughter who is 15 about to be 16. She is extremely over weight. Shes 5'3 & 265 pds I feel so bad for her she has always been over weight. Also she was born with club feet and has had a few surgerys done. Mostly she eats well.Some times junk with friends or with her father but at home where she is 95 percent of the time she eats home cooked balanced meals.agree d she could cut down in portion sizes but I feel bad and dont want her to be hungry. I cant motivate her at all.I've even tried to work out with her and noluck. She lost a total of 5 pds which is great and we all expressed how proud we where of her.That didnt last long and she put it back on.She shouldn't be as heavy as she is for what she does eat and she has been tested for everything that I know of. I just dont know what to do for her and im scared for her.I feel there should be programs for... (view more)

My daughter is getting to be the point where she is obese she keeps gaining weight. All she will do is sit around play on the computer. All day long she eats and eats. She goes to school but that's mostly it. I don't know what to do. I need some advice I'm really worried about her.

About a month ago, I wrote on this board about 2 of my (now) 4 sons. This time it is about Adrian, my oldest. He is 16, 5'9 and 265 pounds. At the time of my last posting, Adrian was about 248-250 pounds. So this is about a 15 pound gain in a month. He likes to eat, and eats a lot throught the day (mostly junk). His weight has gone up sharply in the past months but this months gain is ridiculous. He wears a size 46 pants and he is in a bit of denial about his weight. He says that people keep teasing him because he is fat, but has no desire to lose. Please give advice, and thank you.

We had been doing the program almost without a single problem until my son went camping for a week with family. He came home weighing five pounds heavier. We are discouraged and depressed and stuck still. HELP!

Hi I have an 11 year old son. He is 5'3" and 204 lbs. His highest weight was 211. He has been watching his weight like crazy so he can play a football game this year. He is already practicing with the team 2 hours a week and doing rec basketball. He just finished soccer season. His diet? He has recently cut out bread and that has helped his weight loss. He drinks lots of bottled water or homemade ice tea with lemon (no sugar). We don't keep many snacks in the house. I am diabetic, so everything here has turned to sugarfree and low carb. We have been cooking natural foods, mostly on the grill. Minimal packaged foods. When school is in session, I pack his lunches. He told me that the lunches are unhealthy at school. I agree. My concern is, he looks a little chubby, but he is a solid mass. Football requirements need him to be at 140lbs MAX to play with his team. I can see him loosing... (view more)

Hello everyone, I first posted this on the Teens' Board a couple of weeks ago and got only once reply.Now that this Board is active again, I'm updating it and posting it here. PLEASE, I NEED YOUR ADVICE, PARENTS. I'm the aunt of a boy named John, who came to live with us (my husband and me; we were childless until John came to live with us a year ago) because his mom (my husband's cousin) had been neglecting him. John came to us last June and he was seriously underweight. The doctor said he was 57" tall and weighed only 68 pounds and at the physical with his shirt off I could see how all his ribs showed. For the first 2 weeks I tried to get John to eat more at meals but he didn't eat that much and then I began to make him treats like a milkshske before bedtime and things like that because the doctor said he was so underweight. Then John began to eat more and by the time school started he... (view more)

Hi my name is Emily and I need some suggestions in helping my child get in shape. I took Michael to the doctor last week for a check-up because he was coughing alot lately and it was his first time to the doctors in over 2 years since he doesn't like going there. So the doctor gave Michael a full physical and he was very concerned about his weight as he was 5'7" in height with a 50 inch waist and weighed 295 lbs. Needless to say I was shocked when the doctor gave me my baby's weight and measurements,I always knew he was a big boy but I thought he was mostly average compared to other kids his age because most of his friends where around his size. Now I know he needs to lose weight but I don't know how to get him started when he has spent everyday of summer vacation so far locked up in his room eating, sleeping, watching tv & playing videogames. from his bed. He only comes out to grab... (view more)
