All day she sits on the computer on myspace.com. I can't get her off of it. At my ex's house all he eats is junk. Him his gf and daughter eat junnk and there all over 200 lbs. I don't want my daughter to be like them. She also parties alot over at her fathers house and I know she drinks and I can't stop her. I have her on a diet here she eats certain foods at certain times. She was skinny till she broke up with her first bf at 10. She lived with her father at that time and all she did was eat. She ate so much food she could of saved a city. And now all this food has caught up to her. She says she wants to loss weight but she doesn't know how. We don't have enough money to send her to a gym. She won't walk... (view more)

My daughter is at 129 now, in the last year she has gained around 30+ pounds. My husband and I are both overweight and runs in both our families. I have started sending her breakfast to daycare and lunch to school, when we eat at home she gets a healthy dinner, is not allowed juice or sugared drinks. I plan to talk to her doctor when we go for her ADHD checkup at the end of this month. In the last couple of months, she seems to be gaining 1 to 2 pounds per week. All summer at daycare they exercised everyday and then most days went on a trip. I just don't know what to do and have read the articles about mother's dieting causing eating disorders in kids and don't want to cause that. My husband is no help in this area, he thinks I should leave her alone, I cannot agree to that. Any suggestions?

My daughter was athletic and lean all her life. In the past two years, along with her growing about 4 inches, she has also gained over 60 pounds of fat! all in her thighs and belly. She doesn't seem to mind, and she laughs it off if I bring it up.

Hi... I was just wondering in you have caught any of your children posting pictures/videos of themselves on the internet. The other day I found a video of my obese (237 lb.) son on youtube! I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was wondering if any of you have found your children doing similar things and how you delt with it.

My stepdaughter is 9 and weighs 122lbs. She had leukemia when she was 4 and is nearing her 5 year mark in remission. Her being overweight is not only hereditary but due to the steroids she was on during her treatments. She lives with her dad and I most of the time because her birth mother works. Her dad and I and the kids went to a diatician upon her oncologists suggestion to see what and how we should feed her and how she should exercise. Unfortunately the birth mother didn't go. The birth mother is also overweight and thinks she "knows how" to feed her daughter. When she does have the little girl, she usually takes her to an "all you can eat" buffet or McDonald's for breakfast, or a steak place for lunch or dinner. The birth mother only gets her kids like on the weekends and most of the time she takes them out to eat at least two to three times on that weekend. She thinks she ... (view more)

I will start with thank you for all the info i found here on this site. I have been herefor 3 plus hours reading and learning. Here's why, Last night the person I love and care most about in the world handed me a note on her way to bed that said she was not happy with the way she looked and would be willing to do any thing to lose some weight. She said "I might be bigger then you dad. I am very uncomfortable with myself and HATE the way I look. I mean those words." This is my baby girl, if your a dad you understand what i mean when i say all I see is perfection and my baby girl who I would die for and do anything for. She told me she was tipping the scales at 206 I was floored and shocked. Then I got worried about her health. Some where in the last 14 years she has grow up and the first year of high school and this home coming dance thing that is in two mounths became important. Who... (view more)

I know this is not for me but I want to know if you guys can give me some much needed advice.
I'm basically very worried about my daughter’s weight, and I really don't know what to do. Some background info, I have one daughter named Sara and she's always been a chubby girl all her life. I really never worried about her weight and let her have w/e and everything she wanted, no matter how large. I know this wasn't smart but I didn't really know what to do but make my little girl happy.
As she grew older I realized she wasn't just chubby or pudgy anymore, but becoming quite fat for her age, especially around ages 8 and 9. I still hesitated, and continued to indulge in her horrible and large diet, which I now realize is my fault. This became the worst during her preteens, when early puberty caused her appetite to reach new heights, and of course I stupidly I continued to give... (view more)

My daughter is 15. She is 186 lbs and we have a huge problem. She was doing okay on her diet. She doesn't drink any sodas or anything. But on Father's Day her and a group of friends were jumping on our trampoline into the pool. Well it was going well for about two hours. So my husband and I said we would be back around 8 because we had to pick up my son from his friends and go grocery shopping. Well about 6:30 I get a phone call from one of my daughters friends saying she is being rushed to the Emergency Room and her boyfriend is in the ambulance with her. Well I get to the hospital about 20 min later. They wouldn't let me in the ER so I talked to her friends. Well it seems she jumped into the pool and her ankle missed the pool and hit the edge of the pool. After 2 hours of waiting a doctor comes back saying she needed surgery. She broke it in six different places. Then she went into... (view more)

My daughter is 12, and she weighs 166 lbs. I am extremely worried for my daughter, and she is always depressed after eating. It breaks my heart to see my child like this. I want her to be happy and feel good about herself! Every time I suggest exersizing, she gets angry at me and won't come out of her room for at least an hour. I'm just trying to help, but I don't want her angry and sad. Please, tell me what to do!

Since the new year my son has put on 30 pounds. It came as a bit of a shock after going to the doctors yesterday. It seems though that he doesn't care at all that he has gone from an average 130 to 160. He has outgrown all of his pants and most of his shirts. I'm trying to get him motivated but it seems like he doesn't care -- like he almost wants to gain weight. Help me before my child becomes obese!
