Hello everyone.I used to come to this board on a daily basis in hopes for new information on help my son lose weight.I see alot of insults.Where is the support to help each other? I know my son is obese and so am I. Its not all his fault I BUY THE FOOD,I TAKE HIM OUT HE'S 9!.I use to post here but lately its seems that some people are posting as a joke? Why? Isn't there enough cruelty going on.I know someone is going to post something insulting to what I have said but I don't care.Its hard to help a child who is obese,especially when the parent is obese or not living with them to support them daily.I greatly appreciate any advice on shopping,recipes to sneak veggies in or even exercise tricks.For instance I took my son to the mall and played a treasure hunt game.By the time he found all the clues he had walked 2 miles but he didn't know it.I look for things like that here.Help in anyway shape or form.I just want to thank those here who offer help and support.

My daughter Sara is 5 years old and is, thanks to me and my unhealthy lifestyle an overweight child. She weights 55 pounds. her weight never bothered her. this month she started kindergarten and she is constantly bullied by other kids because of her weight. Sara carries most of her weight in her belly. she has a big round belly. she mostly wears dresses because i have a difficult time to find clothes that fit her. if she wears jeans or a skirt i let her belly hang over them. the other kids in kindergarten laugh at her because she has such a big belly. when i take her to kindergarten some of the kids say: there comes fatty! or look at Sara's gut! i hate to see other kids doing this to my little girl. i'm a compulsive overeater, so you can all guess how i deal with it. and my daughter does in the same way. please tell me how i can help my little girl!

My son just came home from summer camp and I couldn't beleive my eyes. He gained 18 pounds in the 7 weeks he was gone. None of his pants button anymore! He is not upset. He says he likes his new belly. How could this happen in such a short time, and how can I get him to turn around?

Hi, I'm writing about my son Elijah. My wife and I were called to the school to talk to the school nurse and we were told what should have been obvious to us; Eli was very overweight. Somehow we had both not seen his weight problem. We had assumed he was a normal healthy child and were shocked to be told at 3ft11 and 185lbs he was obese. Yes we had problems finding clothes for him and yes we saw he had a belly but so did all his friends, though nowhere near as big, and we felt he was normal. Well he has never eaten a lot of junk food, he just eats a lot in general and is very inactive barely moving from the couch from the moment he gets home till when he goes to bed.
That was back at the beginning of June and our attempts to get him moving over the summer have failed and he has outgrown, in width, his old school uniform. We're both at a loss as where to go next. Incentives for... (view more)

I'm a young single mother of a 5 year old girl. My problem is that i'm a compulsive overeater. And I let my little girl sometimes eat with me. I know that this is wrong but I don't know what to do about it right now. My little girl already weights 55 pounds. And it makes me quite sad to know that she is overweight because of me. We mostly eat fast food and icecream because that is what i crave. of your my girl loves to go to McD. and stuff like that.
If anyone can help me, could you please give me your emailaddress and I will mail you back.

Hi everyone. My daughter Milly is having weight problems. She is 5'5 and 190 lbs according to the doctor that I took her to last year. She carries almost all her weight in her belly. She always has her hand on it and her back arched back like it is so heavy, like she is pregnate. I told her that I would not buy her any new clothes until she loses weight. I;m guessing she gained because she now wears her pants under her sagging belly with it peeking out under her shirt. I also bought her bikinis because I can't find one pieces to fit around her. I figured that a bikini would give her big belly ennough room. Is that ok? I never really noticed how big she was a couple of months ago, until i went into her room at night to turn of her light that she accidently left on, her shirt had rolled up in her sleep and the covers were off. She was on her side, and all of her belly fat was just hanging ... (view more)

My boyfriends daughter is 8 years old and weighs 120 lbs. She lives with her mother and he gets her every other weekend. We aren't sure what to do. The doctor told the mother that she was over weight and she said he was nuts.

My DS is weighing in at 103lbs. He is 48 in tall. We have been going to the Well Child Clinic at our local Children's Hospital since May. He has gained 7 pounds since we started. They subscribe to Ellyn Satter's philosophy in feeding. I have been trying to get doctors to pay attention to this problem for 2 1/2 years. It took that long to get here. I have not given him any juice since them, don't bring junk food into the house, have tried limiting food in past, but now trying Satters way of limiting food times. I just feel at a complete lost.
Can anyone point me to get support forums besides this one, especially ones that support Satter's style.
P.S. He also got diagnosed with sleep apnea this year but hasn't gotten his machine set for the right diagnose because we weren't able to get in for another sleep study until end of August.
