Hello, my name is Aneesha and I’m worried about our twin sons, Jamar and Jamile. They’re 10 and turn 11 next month. 6 years ago, when my husband retired from the U.S.Army, we became foster parents for the boys and after 2 years we legally adopted them. Up until the summer of 2019 both boys were slender but then they started to get a little chunky . Last February before COVID they had their physicals and Jamar weighed 87 and Jamile weighed 88. They looked a little chubby but no problem since they’re a little on the tall side. Then the lockdown hit and their school has been online. I’m away at work all day, 5 sometimes 6 days a week. My husband has been “Mr. Mom” with the boys, supervising their schoolwork and other activities. All their youth sports have been cancelled and so we agreed to let them play video games as a break from schoolwork. The problem is they’ve both blown up since... (view more)

Hey, i was on here previously talking about my daughter and her worrying weight of 256lbs. I had given an update that she had met a boy and had started to lose weight for him. In the last year and 5 months she had lost 87 lbs and is much more able to do simple things such as walking up the stairs. She is nearly at a "normal" weight however over the past few months she has gained about 10lbs which is unexplained because she has been eating and exercising the same. But overall its positive. Hope that you are all well and can reach this point.

Hello. My name is Corinne. My child, who we'll call jack, used to be on the brink of underweight. In the past three months he has put on about 20 pounds. Keep in mind he's four foot eight, and his father and I were only four foot three. He's been growing consistently, maybe an inch every month since the start of puberty 9 ish months ago. I haven't spoken to him about his recent rapid weight gain, but I did notice he was eating a lot more. Should I be concerned? He was 77 a month ago, but is now 98, putting him in the overweight category. He's stayed this way since last week, ant hasn't grown but the regular 3.5 or so inches, and went from a size 8 to a 12 husky. He's also been a lot more sedentary, as he won a new console right before school's last shutdown.

This is not my child, but my friends younger sister, Saima, is very big, I'm not sure exactly how much she weighs, but it seems likely that they're close to 300 lbs. Her older sister came to me annoyed once that a brand new 12 serving cake was gone the next day, her older sister and stepmum had only had a slice each, Saima had eaten the rest. A few hours after that they apparently had takeaway from a local shop and Saima got a 14" pizza and 2 portions of fries, devouring the lot. I bought a onesie for her bithday once, but I had to send it back because the 4X was too tight on her. I'm really worried about her and I need some advice...

Hello everyone,
I'm an overweight single parent and I need help. I have 2 boys 13 and 11 who are both dangerously overweight. I've mainly ignored my boys' weight and assumed it would get better. I know I'm not a good role model being obese myself at 265 lbs and pretty short. This year has been hard on everyone and I didn't really notice that we were eating more at first. After about a month into lockdown we were pretty relaxed about things. Wasn't getting them to get dressed. Pj bottoms and no tops was pretty common, even I wasn't bothering with getting dressed. We were using skip the dishes or door dash most days. Going through a few boxes of soda a week. Again I was doing a great job at ignoring the issue. I could see the stretch marks but I figured they were old or just signs of growing up, not out. We were eating dessert every day. Ice cream, cakes, things I usually didn't buy... (view more)

My son is 16 and 270 pounds at 5'9. He had an asthma attack in the beginning in October and we went to the hospital, where he ended up weighing in at 262 pounds. I didn't know that he had gotten so big. His doctor says that he needs to at least lose 80 pounds, but I don't know where to begin! Over the past month, I have tried to get him to eat less, but he refuses to do so. He always says he is hungry and I do not want to feel hungry as that is a bad feeling.
Since paying attention I notice that he is really big. He is out of breath doing much of anything at this point, all he wants to do is sit, watch TV, play games and eat. Heading from the car to his room on the second floor he gets very out of breath and struggles to climb the stairs. Even bending over gets him red in the face.
He does eat a lot, but I don't think it is an insane amount. I work very late and usually for... (view more)

This is not my child, but it is my friends younger sister. She is really big (about 230 lbs) and I'm quite concerned when I phone her older sister, I can hear the furniture creaking in the background. Her sister came up to me today annoyed, saying that she ate a whole 10 slices of chocolate gateau on her own, her older sister and her mother only had a slice each and her dad didn't even taste it! She sat next to me in the car once, and it went so far down I almost s

My son is overweight. It is hard for me to see it as I’ve always been big (6 foot 2 and 400lbs right now) myself and to me he just looks a bit chubby, but according to his doctor he is obese and needs to lose 100+lbs, which is definitely scary to me as he is my only kid and his mom died around two years ago and I want the best for him.
He is 16, 5 foot 8 and 245lbs. Around a year ago he was around 185lbs, so he has definitely been packing on the pounds. He is very self conscious of his weight, until we were at the doctors recently I hadn’t seen him with his shirt off for over a year, and I was shocked with how big he is, I guess baggy clothes can his a belly. He is fairly active, often biking around our city, but he is not really focused on team sports and the like, so I don’t know how to really help him lose weight.

Parents, I just want to share my experience as
a dad, A year ago this weekend my son Leo passed away. He was 12 and a half and in 7th grade. He had been a slender little boy, then gained a lot of weight and was 225 pounds at age 12. During the summer of 2019, he was involved in a science explorers program at his school, and he grew about 2 inches taller and lost 20 pounds without trying. A year ago today he woke up feeling sick to his stomach and didn't eat. He threw up the soup I gave him for lunch and I took him to the pediatrician that afternoon (luckily I got an appointment).
The pediatrician examined him and told me Leo probably had a mild gastroenteritis and said with a big grin on his face "he's probably just been eating too much cookies and candy". I didn't say anthing. The doctor said it would pass in a few days. Two days later, Leo was still sick and I called the... (view more)

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?
