My daughter is now 5'3 but she still has lots of fat in her stomach, when she sits down she has love handles. Any advice on how to lose that fat? I just want her to be happy and she has very low self esteem when shopping for cloths... please post tips and advice!

we are back from our cruise vacation, early in the morning. i feel so guilty for letting sammie eat so much on the ship now, bacause i didn't know she would really eat all day. she definitely looks like she has gained weight. when we left the ship, her stomach was literally sticking out of her shirt. it isn't flabby, though, it is firm, and round,she does have love handles and fat rolls, but it dosen't hang down unless she sits. yesterday, when my wife finally convinced her to go swimming, we found her bathing suit no longer fit her, either, mainly in the waist part. also, we found out she gained an extra thirty pounds. she just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and even a member on the ship said to her with a laugh:i saw you all the time by that buffet table. that stomach of your sure looks like it knows how to fit it all in!
we heard another rude comment while leaving, from a... (view more)

i was able to get internet access on the ship, so i will keep you posted with updates in my daughter. i am a little worried about her. since we've gotten on the ship, all she has done is eat. my wife told her to take a break, and go do something with her brother, but she started to cry, and said she was hungry.whenever we go on cruises, she usually gains alotof weight, but she has never eaten this intensely before. i am worried it is because we told her we were okay with whatever she looked like. by the afternoon, it was time for the chocolate and desserts buffet to open, and truthfully, she never left the room. when she sat down, i saw that her belly extended a little past her knees. she continued to eat until it was time for bed. kyle told me that her pants looked too tight, so i went over to check it out. she looked completely bloated, even her double chin looked bigger than usual,...

yesterday, we went to a pretty fancy resteraunt, we like to go out to eat alot, and my daughter ate a humongous amount of food. she would not touch the salad, but drank two bowls of soup, and had the whole plate of cheesy fries, which was our appetizer. again, she had to wear one of my belts, too keep her shirt on over her stomach. next, she refilled her soda four times, and ordered a hot dog and hamburger duo, her favorites. after wolfing the meal down, she ordered another of the same dish. she was about to order one more, when i heard her groaning, and rubbing her belly. i went over to help her, and found that her stomach was being squeezed by the belt. i put it on the highest notch for her, and she proceded to eat the third plate of food. by then, it was time for dessert, she has a very large appetite, so we let her get the mini cake for herself, plus a chocolate milkshake. she then...

thank you, taylor, for that caring remark. when i typed that, i was implying that she be healthy, since healthy is better when you are thinner. i wouldn't mind if she were 500 pounds, but it is hurting her self esteem, and truthfully, i do feel embarrassed. not of her, of myself. i let her become the size she is now, and people like to make fun, especially if they are from a thin family. also, i want her to be thin because i want her dreams of a model to come true. but she is happy when she eats, so i will let her eat. i just hope somehow she can be healthier, and have a slimmer appearence.

I tried to talk to my daughter, Sammie. i told her that she needs to realize she is obese, and is setting unrealistic goals for herself, such as to be a swimsuit model like her brother has done once. she asked me why i pick on her because she isn't fat. i think she knows she is, but is embarrassed. we recently went to a dinner party, and a relative we haven't seen in a while thought she was the older sister. when we told her no, she patted sammie's large belly, and told her all the weight is unhealthy for her to have. she joked, and said she took her family's stomachs on herself. i can't really blame my relative, sammie wore a very tight button down shirt, and a skimpy skirt with one of my belts on the highest notch. the buttons were stretched over her, and her belly bulged over the top and bottom of the belt. what's worse is she ate two double hamburgers, and a giant slice of cake....

hello, i have a problem with my daughter, nd don't know what to do. i have two kids,a boy, and a girl. my son is sixteen, the oldest. he has no weight problem at all, other than he may be too thin. he has a very skinny waistline, and no stomach at all, he's flat as a board. this is because he does alot of activities, such as surfing, skateboarding, and other sports. not only that, but he has been interested in modeling too. my daughter, on the other hand, is only 12, and is the biggest in her family. alot of the weight is in her belly. also, she has a large double chin, and waddles when she walks, since she has gotten so big. whenever she get into fights with her brother, he pulls up her shirt, and grabs some of her belly with his hands. he tells her she is an obese whale with a belly the size of a mountain. then, she screams, and jumps on him, almost crushing him. we all know he is...

I just want to let every one know that they should be very carful when it comes to pressuring children into diets. I was chubby as a child and always teased. So my parenst sent me to "fat camp" and put me on all sorts of diets. They were very strict with me and didn't ever let me even set my eyes on junk food. From a very young age they were showing me nutrition labels on foods. I never lost any weight until i took it into my own hands and starting starving myself with a 300 calorie diet. Everyone around me was happy because i was losing weight. It soon got to be such a big problem though, that i had to be hospitilized. I just want everyone to realize that your child isn't healthy if they are purging and starving even if they are losing weight. Make sure if your child is losing weight that you know how they are doing it. Because people that are starving themselves may still appear at a normal weight.

Hi! My daughter is 11 years old. She is 5'2" and weighs 195 lbs. I don't know what else do to to help her lose weight. I think it's more emotional. When she is feeling sad or bored she sneeks food. I have tried talking to her but nothing works. I can see her killing herself slowly and its killing me not being able to help her. please if anyone knows of something anything that I can do to help her. I was thinking about some kind of diet pills or something but I am afraid because of her age. Please, I am at the end of my rope.

I have a 6 year old little girl, who suffers from severe allergies and asthma. She is constantly on steriods that make her appitite very high. She is a big girl, 4ft2in and is 89 pounds. She is very proud of who she is and embraces her body. We neber say the "F" word(fat) in our house. Instead we openly talk about "Healthy" food and making the right choices. She totaly understands the differance between "Healthy" and "Junk" but still has a Big problem loosing any weight. She is very active. Cheerleading,bike riding, swimming, but still her body never changes. Iv talked to docs and they say to keep away from junk foods and sodas, but that is not the problem. I really think she has a medical issue that the docs wont belive me. Also taking constant Steroids isnt the best thing to do when your wanting to loose weight. She is the only one out of our 4 kids with this issue...Is there any other... (view more)
