I am very worryed about my daughter. she is 15 and about 180. Last summer she was about 190 and then became annerexic. I am only so sorry i dident see all the signs before it got to the point that we had to check our child into a rehap center for treatment. She got out and gaind'd back to 180. I think now she is not eating again but i dont know how to talk to her about to issue. i want her to know that not eating is not how you lose weight. i was thinking about maybe having a talk with her boyfriend about the issu and thought he could maybe help encourage her that she is beautiful the way she is but if she dose want to lose there are better ways. any ideas or suggestions if my idea might work? thank you for the help

My daughter is a beautiful girl with a huge heart. I don't think she realizes she has a weight problem. My problem is how do I say something without hurting her feelings. She is 5'3" and weighs about 165, she smokes and is on the pill. So obviously, being overweight is a health issue for her. I am so afraid of hurting her feelings yet I don;t want to sit back and have her health in jeaopardy. Any suggestions?

I have a five year old daughter. She is 3 foot, 6 inches and weights 75 pounds. I would like to know how much a five year old should weight? Is her weight still okay or should it start to concern me?

I have a daughter who is over weight and i 4 ft tall weights 145. I'm not sure what to do first of all she don't eat much junk food. I buy fat free or lite things. No soda only water with crystal light mixed with it. She is a very picky eater.She is active to a point, we have no kids around our home for her to play with after school, so she gets bored with me. Any help please......

Hi! I'm 23 years old and I just wanted to let you parents know about what helped change my life. I struggled with weight ever since I was about 13 years old. The summer before high school I wanted to get in shape so I could try out for field hockey so I asked my parents to let me go to "FAT CAMP" At first I was nervous and kind of embarassed about the idea but it turned out to be the best decision of my life. I went to camp kingsmont in Massachussetts and lost 35 pounds my first summer, I went back every summer until I graduated high school. There are a lot of fitness/weightloss camps out there for kids. If you can afford it, it is definitly worth it to find one for your kids.

my father used to tell me that i was looking a little fatter or that i was constantly eating when I was very thin. This negative attention made me want to eat more because i figured im disgusting now, why not? then as mother began lecturing me about food choices I went on a crash diet, losing 19 pounds in three weeks. I thought this would make me happy but it didnt. I gained all the weight back. When I got to High School I came into my own and became truly happy THIS IS WHAT GOT THE WEIGHT OFF, i was too busy to think about food. HELP YOUR KIDS GET HAPPY AND ENCOURAGE THEM, DONT ATTACK THEM WITH CELERY AND CARROTS!

I am a single mom in the military so when I deployed 2 years ago my children went to stay with there grandmother. My 8 year old son went from 95lbs to 168lbs in the 9 months I was gone. There grandmother blamed it on the steroids in his asthma medication, but I later found out that the real culprit was eating whatever they wanted and being couch potatoes. 2 years later, he is 148lbs and 6 inches taller. This was due to limiting portion sizes, no junk food in the house and limiting tv and video games. He's still the biggest kid in his class, but he's also the tallest. We're still climbing this uphill battle but we'll get there. I'm hoping by the time he reaches High school his height and weight will balance out. It's amazing how 9 months of damage can take years to recover from.

My Child started gaining weight when she was around 7. I would see her eat whole loaves of bread but, I was busy at work so i never dealt with it. By the time she was 13 she was over 200 pounds. Now she's 15 and 180 and 5ft.5in. Tall. I suggest that all of you with younger children to monitor them and speak up when they overweight. They may be angry with you at the time but I promise you it's for the better when you force them not to overweight or force them to walk or play a sport. A friend's child of mine has recently passed away because of his obesity. His mother told me she wishes she would've done something. Do you want to live in regret?

I am having a bit of a problem. My daughter has been differn't lately. She dropped out of all her sports. Since she has dropped out she has gained 20 pounds since. I brought her to the doctor to check her height and weight and she is 5 foot 3 inches and 181 pounds. We went to the beach last week and she insisted on wearing a bikini and that's when it got worse, i took pictures of her in her bikini and showed her. She told me she likes being overweight. This week i demanded her to do 10 push ups and 20 situps in front of me and she barely made it through situps and she fell during pushups. I dont her to go through an unhealthy life as a teen. So i am going to keep buying her smaller sizes than she is to determine her to fit into those pants. am i being harsh or is this okay?

My last message on here was on 10-29-2006. I gave a message about my daughter being 140lbs. She gained up to 153lbs. but has now lost down to 145lbs. since she has been put on a weight watchers diet. She lost very quickly at first as the first bit was water retention. She is getting to like the diet. I think the rest of the weight loss will be much slower as it is not water. It is the opinion of the doctor that she is now on the right path.
