My son has always been chubby, I'm not exactly the best role model as I'm overweight, probably a little obese but not massively so. This last year his weight has exploded and I sort of ignored it and thought he'd grow into it and have a growth spurt or something. Still no growth spurt and he has pushed from about 140 lbs to nearly 200 lbs in a year. I'm a single parent and he's a latch key kid. I don't pay a lot of attention to what he's eating or what I'm eating, but still I wasn't expecting to see such a big change. At the doctors there was no pulling punches, I was told flat out he was very obese and his checkup revealed early signs of some health problems. I've no idea where to start with any of this and need some help with turning things around. Help please.

Recently my son Zach has been putting on a good amount of weight. He had started lifting in 9th grade and was decently heavy, but it was nearly all muscle. His weight didn't change for a year, but now I've noticed that a decent layer of fat has been building up on him. His eating habits at home haven't changed and we all eat pretty healthy. He started at around 175, but now hes approaching 195. He plays water polo and still goes to the gym, though a little less often than before. But he doesn't seem to know that hes really getting bigger, his shirts that once fit good, now show his belly, and his speedos at polo are looking really tight. Please help

My son Akamu is obese. When I lived in Hawaii, My wife had died while giving birth so it had been my job as a parent to raise my child as healthy and strong as he could possibly get so I watched what he ate. I had taken him Tim to Illinois (where we currently live) but since he was born and taken here, his weight has just exploded! He is roughly 204 lbs but he is only 8! Recently, however, I had been looking through my YouTube history to find a video I had accidentally left, so I went in there and to my surprise, a video titled "tight fit in the tub" was waiting. I had searched even further and found even more videos of this kind of material and I know it sure that the only ones who have access to the iPad and account are me and my son. I don't know if this is what is influencing my son to gain weight, or any other factors. Help?

I need advice from you parents, please! On Tuesday I called to my son Paul's school to pick him up. He had been in a fight in the lunchroom. The next day we (Paul, myself, and my brother, Paul's uncle) went to meet with the assistant principal. All the boys involved are in 7th grade. There is a bully who made has been making fun of one of Paul's friends (Lane) since Lane transferred to the school last fall. Lane is very fat. The bully (Ricky) makes fun of him and other overweight kids (boys and girls) all the time
We were told by the counselor that on Tuesday (according to witnesses), Lane started to cry because Ricky was so mean. My son Paul stood up and told Ricky to stop. Ricky said "Are you going to make me?". Paul said he would if Ricky punched him first. Ricky did and the two boys ended up wrestling on the lunchroom floor. My son ended up on top. The counselor told us that... (view more)

My son is 9 4'10" and 157 lbs., he outweighs his 16 y/o brother and is bigger around than my husband. Clothes shopping is a nightmare and he only wears sweats. Any basic activity has him huffing and puffing and he complains it hurts when he does anything active. We've tried many things to change his (and family) eating habits but he just continues to gain. His peds dr isn't too concerned and says he'll grow into it. But it breaks my heart and I lay in bed and cry sometimes because I know he is not happy and he can't keep up with other kids at school or even do basic things like shower and wipe himself appropriately due to his weight. Feeling kinda lost and just looking for support from other parents who are or have dealt with this.

My son is 6 and is 130 lbs. I keep trying to change eating habits and activity levels, but I feel like we are not making any progress. Now Kids are calling him names.

My daughter Phoebe is 4ft 7" and her weight is literally off the charts. It can't be displayed on a bmi age percentile growth chart. The doctor says she is in the 100th percentile and has a bmi of 60. She weighs 258lbs. I believe this means she is morbidly obese. She weighs 100lb more than me and I am 4ft taller than her and have an on the cusp of obese with a bmi of 29.8. I don't want my daughter to die before I do.

Hi everyone, I need some advice. I have two sons, Ben who is 16 and Spencer who is 17. Both of them are quite overweight, Ben being 220 at 5’8 and Spencer being 245 at 5’10. Whenever I try to bring up their weight they both will refuse to talk about it! They were always larger children but over the last year they’ve gotten quite large. I don’t know how to address the situation or have a solution that could work in mind. If anyone has any advice please share!

My daughter Grace has a problem. She is 12 years old in 250 pounds. She eats nonstop. The only problem is that she has no idea, and at this point she really needs to know. Most of her weight is stored in her belly making it extremely flabby and have “rolls”. Her condition has gotten much much worse recently she has major trouble walking and can’t see or touch her toes, she also needs help getting dressed, getting in bed and getting in the car. Because she doesn’t know she wears cloths that do not flatter he such as tank tops and bikinis. She never exersizes despite me constantly telling and asking her to. I lead by example and run 12 miles each day and work out at the gym. She doesn’t eat bad she just over eats. Her friends are really sweet and don’t say anything but It’s very obvious. When she lays down she holds her belly and when she walks/attempts to run she has to hold it very tight... (view more)

my Daughter Emery has an extremely rare condition to where her body thinks she’s starving. Because her body is under the impression she’s starving it keeps EVERYTHING. Her brain is also constantly sending out signals that she’s hungry which leads to constant stomache pain unless she eats. We used to try so hard to keep it under control but her dad died last year in car crash (hit by drilling driver) ever since her dad died things have been really hard for everyone. I’ve stopped really trying and my daughter has turned to food. The pounds keep packing on and I won’t lie that she’s huge. It’s not her fault at all, so I don’t blame her. We keep only healthy food in the house aside from a box of oatmeal raisin cookies that we keep locked away and are eaten as special treats on fridays. She wears men’s shirts and exercise is really really hard with her body. No one at school teases he because... (view more)

Hello everyone. I need some advice about my son Mav. Pretty much all his life he has been relatively skinny, but since 2017 has started, I have noticed that he has put on some weight. June of 2016, Mav was 5'7 and 150 pounds, and June of 2017 he was 5'8 and 200 pounds. A 50 pound gain in a year. The doctor told me to watch his eating habits and encourage him to exercise more. Recalling the past year, I haven't noticed him eating more at home, and my cooking is very healthy. The only unhealthy food that we will eat is Friday night pizza. My other son, who is 16, will yo-yo between skinny and stocky (for various reasons that I am aware of) but not fat. So I've paid close attention to his eating habits over the summer break and he has not done anything out of the ordinary. However, he's been very lazy and has gained I'd say close to 10-15 pounds in 2 months. He says he's not eating out of... (view more)

Need advice, my daughter is 13 and weighs 280. She's always been stout and always been on the heavier side. She is sensitive about it, do I risk making it worse by saying something? Im a big girl at 5'6 and 225 but Im comfortable and healthy, her father has always loved big women and even told me when we first met that i was beautiful but needed to gain weight and i was raised by parents who pushed being skinny, big girl's were ugly. I was 180lbs, size 12 at the time and felt huge and ugly. My ex set a great example that big girls are beautiful and skinny isnt all that. Our only concern was being healthy and confident and she isnt. We divorced 5 years ago and im afraid its traumatized her. Question, she is the middle child and highly sensitive, im afraid i could make it worse but i want to say either own it or fix it. Do I get tough and quit tiptoeing around it? advice?
