Hello Sarah,
I've been lurking on the site for the past few days and was about to write a post on the board about my situation when I saw yours! We are in the same boat, my son Jason is 16 as well and gained a ton of weight over the past year (the majority since the end of the previous academic year - June-ish), when he got a summer job. The summer job is at McDonalds and has continued into part time employment during the school term. Jason last saw the doctor in July of 2018 and he was around 180 (which was up a bit from the previous), at 5'9 and is hitting 220 last I am aware of.
He's always been on the huskier side but he's really gotten large this year. I'm not home so I can't see what he's eating on a daily basis (even though I have access to his bank account and often see purchases from fast food places on his account) but I see him every 2 or so weeks - my job is away ...

I am writing here looking for ways to help my 16 year old son David lose weight.
We have been worried about David's weight for the past 6-7 years. Up to a year ago he was trending around the same line of 8-10lbs overweight, and with the doctor's advice we attempted (and obviously failed) to encourage healthy eating/activity levels to which David was always very combative over (never violently, just yelling/refusing to do anything). His favorite argument was that he was just a little overweight and to have to limit his diet or start exercising more was unfair.
In the past year he has gained a lot of excess weight. He also started a job working at a restaurant (his decision) and we believe eats a lot there plus our (normally healthy) meals as well. He also stopped playing football halfway through the year for reasons he refuses to say. Around a year ago he weighed 169lbs at five ... (view more)

Just got back from a trip to Disney World with my 2 boys, Leo (almost 12) and Lane (10). I was shocked at how fat they are compared to other kids I saw. Last night I weighed them. Leo is 225 and Lane is 137. I decided today that the diet starts today. I need to get 100 pounds of fat off Leo and 60 pounds off Lane. They both wear jogging pants all the time because nothing else fits because their bellies and rear ends are so big. Tonight we had pizza, but that's the last regular meal until they get down to the normal size they were a couple years ago. After they go to sleep I'm clearing out all the cookies, chips, candy, etc. and from now on its skim milk, salad, no daily fast food stops, no evening ice cream treats, no extra money to buy food at school. To give you idea how fat they both are, Leo is 5 feet even and Lane is 4'8. No video games unless they lose 2 pounds a week each. Wish me luck!

Hello,
I came here to look for advice. My son Ricardo Jr. used to be a very energetic boy, and was very active. He would always wake me up to go outside and play, which I didn't wan't to seeing as it is too early, but I would go reluctantly, wishing he we would stop. Well, I got my wish. Sometime between then and his 8th birthday, something happened. He just stopped all together. He wasn't as active and his appetite got huge. I let it slide and before I knew it, my once slim, fit, and healthy son became an extremely overweight couch potato. I've tried getting him back to his usual routine, but he doesn't want to do it. Bringing up his weight doesn't help either as he avoids it altogether. I just want my son back.
Thanks,
Teresa

Hello,
I have some concerns around my son's weight. He used to be a very active kid, hockey, soccer, track, and with being a time came a huge appetite. Last year he broke his leg on the ice and was in a wheelchair for 3 months and he continued to eat the same as he always had. My mother in law came and stayed with us and looked after him while he was stuck at home and then picked him up from school when he was back at school. I was working evenings and often doing 7 in a row so I didn't see Tony much during the start of his weight gain. My mother in law let him eat what he wanted and he did following the same food routine he was used to going to McDonald's after practice but he wasn't going to practice anymore and he wasn't exercising. He put on a lot of weight very quickly. In those 3 months he went from an athletic 120 lbs to a fat 150 lbs without much muscle. He now doesn't want ... (view more)

Help! My son will turn 15 in one week. He is 6 foot 1,
And weighs 360 pounds. We have been battling his weight his entire life. Doctors, diets, sports, exercise classes, etc. HE does not care!!!!! He refuses sports or exercise. He lays around all the time because he is “tired”. Well of course he is! We have taken away all electronics. He is also failing every class, he has ADD and ODD. Oppositional Defiant Disorder. I’m so afraid he will just lay in his room and never do anything with his life!

Hi Janis, thank you for your response and sorry for the late reply! My sons have always been able to come to me whenever they needed assistance with something, so like you said I've decided to stop nagging them on their weights, but I do make it known that I am quite concerned about it. To be honest, I'm quite shocked at their eating habits. They both share a car and I know that they must be eating fast food on the daily, sometimes I have to drive their car unexpectadly and I will see Wendy's and McDonalds wrappers in the car (which is quite disgusting).
Benny is in his senior year of high school and will be attending university in the fall. I am concerned that things will get worse at university - one of his cousins went away to university this year (not too far - about 90 kilometers away) and I stopped by to see him a few days ago as I was doing some work in the region and I can ...

Hello everyone. I wrote on this site roughly a year ago about my two boys, Spencer and Benny. At the time, Spencer was 5'8 and 220 and Benny was 5'10 and 245. Unfortunately, their eating habits have not reduced and both of them have gained a considerable amount of weight. A few days ago, I took both of them to the doctor and I was shocked with the amount of weight gained. Spencer weighed in at 262 at 5'9 and Benny was 290 at 5'10.
The doctor was concerned and talked to them about it, but soon to be 17 and 18 year old boys are great at tuning people out, or they just didn't listen to what he said.
I have tried to talk to them about it, but they refuse to talk about it with me. I've tried my hardest to not get upset with them, or make irrational decisions. Please help!

It’s been two years I think since I posted on here about my son David and his weight problem. I’ve no idea how active this board is, but I don’t have anyone in my life who can relate to my sadness about this, so hopefully others will see this and be able to empathise. David has literally been a fat boy his entire life. He was a short, 10lb baby at birth, and has pretty much remained that way ever since. I personally have never had issues with my weight, and nor has his
dad or his siblings, so it’s been a contentious subject in our household to say the least. Fortunately though, since my last post, David has managed to lose almost 22lbs. Ok, in two years that doesn’t sound like so much, but trust me, for him it’s amazing. He has fought so hard to do this, cutting out all the chocolate and soft drinks he binged on and exercising with his brothers religiously. We’re really all so... (view more)

Help! I took my son Leo for a physical yesterday and it left me with more questions than answers. Leo is 4'9" and weighs 159.He'so grown 2 inches and put on 84 pounds since last July! The pediatrician said all the lab results show no problems like prediabetes. When I asked her why he's put on so much weight she said he eats too much. Tell me something I didn't already know! She then said it's probably "prepuberty weight gain". I don't know if I can believe this. None of his friends (all the same age and grade in school) are gaining any extra weight at all and all seem to have normal appetites while Leo eats more than I do at every meal. The doctor told Leo to watch how much he eats and sure to exercise but that's something I knew already. Have any of you parents gone through something like this with your child? Any advice? Leo just sat there and didn't say anything. Afterwards we went... (view more)

I'm worried about my son Leo.He was always thin but has been putting on a lot of weight since last Christmas. I'm a single dad and try to have healthy meals with fast food and pizza once in a while. Leo is always hungry now and complains if I don't have enough food for him to eat seconds. We went to the pool today and he's beyond chubby now. Any ideas about how I can help him to not eat so much? For example breakfast this morning for him was a big bowl of cereal,orange juice, and 4 pieces of toast.
