Hello, I have two daughters ages 13 and 10. They are very overweight. my 10 year old is 232 and my 13 year old is 294. I know my older daughter went to a sports game a few days ago and had 7 slices of pizza!Recently my daughters went to a friends house for 2 weeks. While there they each gained 10+ pounds!Clothes are so hard. I really dread getting the calls from school saying they failed the presidential fitness test. I am at a loss please help us!

My little girl is five and already weights 63 pounds. She gained so much weight during the holidays. I don't know what to do anymore. She gets bigger and bigger. Just like I do. I am a compulsive overeater and she just loves to eat with me. She can eat as much as a grown up. During christmas she ate nonstop and I let her. All her clothes are very tight now and I already bought her some new ones. She needs clothes for an eight/nine year old child. It breaks my heart to see my little girl being so heavy. She has such a large belly and a double chin. Being heavy doesn't bother her at all - but maybe she is too young to really understand it. She is sometimes teased at school but it doesn't bother her. When I point out to her that she has a round belly she just says: Like you! and smiles at me!
Please help me and my daughter.

Hi, I'm looking for some advice. My 7 year old son is overweight. He has always been a big boy, he was 10 lbs. 4 oz at birth and has always been off the charts as far as height and weight. He is 4'3" tall and weighs 115 lbs. He is solid all over and strong as an ox. He is so sensitive and I am worried that the kids at school will start teasing him.
He really is very active. He plays baseball, basketball and football. He is constantly moving and I swear he doesn't eat all that much. He is very picky about what he eats. He will not touch any vegetable. basically the only thing he will eat is any kind of meat except hot dogs, pasta, bread, cereal, some fruits, cheese, yogurt.
We had blood test run about a year ago, because we were concerned that something was wrong. All test came back fine. And the Dr doesnt really seem too concerned, he said that he was just a big kid, that... (view more)

My daughter is 16 (almost 17) and is about 5 feet 5 inches and weighs about 150 pounds. I only weigh 122 pounds, her grandfather only weigh 141 pounds and her grandmother weighs about 119 pounds. She is the fattest person in our family! She tries to squueze into clothes that are too small for her to convince herself or maybe others that she is a smaller size. She wear bikinis even though she has excess fat! I tries to bring her to the gym with me, and she doesn't want to go, so i call her CHUBETTE. I need her to loose weight. I hate looking at her fat, chubby, blubbery, flabby, overweight body. How can I get her to lose weight?

hi everyone. my daughter blake is 5'5 and 220 lbs. i took her to the doctor the other day because she was getting out of breath and her heart started racing sometimes. The doctor told us that it is because almost all of her fat is carried in her belly. He said that the size of her belly is the same as a morbid obese person. There is fat in all her organs and that is why her heart races. How can i help her??

Hi everyone it has been awhile since i have been on here. As yall probably remember my daughter was very large and obese at 432lbs just four months ago. I took her to the doctor today and found out she has gained almost 40 more pounds in a matter of months. she is very close to reaching 500lbs and i am very scared about that. She doesn't seem to care about the weight she gains she just keeps eating and sneaking food. I am not sure what to do at this point. Please if anyone has any good solutions that will help her in any way please tell me as soon as possible i need help fast. Thank you to all, bye.

Izzy is 4 foot 3 inches and weighs 102 pounds. Her doctor infromed us the other day that she is at risk of becoming overweight. I had not noticed this but last night I went into her room and saw her asleep with her tummy slightly hanging over her trousers. How can I make sure she dosen't get to big, before its not to late?

My daughter Kaylee weighs 290 pounds. She seems to be putting on atleast 1 pound every week or so. It was very embarassing 4 days ago when a old lady walked up to her in target, put her hand on her belly, and asked her when her baby was due. Kaylee just said in a few months. She wouldn't disagree with her at all. I didn't talk to her about it because it was very embarassing for her. I really hope she isn't pregnant. Her belly is large, round, and firm, but I think she would have told me about it if she was. The principal from school called me and asked if we were going to take her out of school b/c rumors had been circling that she was pregnant. Her clothes are just so tight around her firm belly. On Tuesday, we went shopping and everything was to small, except for one shirt that barley went around her big bulging weight. her weight is also farther from the top of her torso. It only began collecting about 2 months ago. I dont know what to do, we have tried diets, etc. but they dont work. I need advice.

A few days ago I posted about my son who's very overweight and having a hard time coping with the amount of weight he's carrying. I already asked the doctor about changing his medication, but he said it's not really an option. The only advice he had on the weight gain is to limit his food and get him exercising.
After I posted I called the doctor and asked why being overweight was so hard on my son. I asked him because other overweight kids don't seem to have as much difficulty with simply carrying their own weight. Mostly their problems are about teasing. He had some good advice that I think all parents should hear. The doctor asked about my son's activity level and I told him he's a couch potato. He walks to and from his classroom at school and in the summer he doesn't even do that.
The advice was that overweight kids need to keep exercising even if it doesn't make them lose ... (view more)
