My daughter is Aleisha she has posted on here. She knows how to tell other people to diet, and some that she has told has actually lost weight. But she cannot get herself to try and lose weight. She is very unhappy. She is 4'11 and weighs 131lbs. She isn't very big just slightly big. But she is growing bigger and bigger. Her doctor even called her "pudgy". She has many friends but no boyfriend and no self esteem. If anyone has any ideas to help her lose weight please tell me. Almost all of her family are "big" including her father and I so that could be another cause. She may feel she needs to be big to fit into the family. But if anyone could please email her with suggestions because she does want to lose weight and don't worry she doesn't care to admit about her weight problem. Please give me suggestions to help her lose weight before she gets to big to do anything about it.

My daughter is now a senior in her high school, she is almost ready for college. However she is 360, and she has had no friends for the past three years. After school she sneaks cookies up to her room and eats. I feel as thoough she has missed out on the greatest years of her life. People make fun of the way her but moves as she walks and she has had no boyfriends. They call he big Melinda, and laugh at her. A boy once tried to ask her out for on of the dances, however it was only a joke and her feeling were very hurt. What should I do?

I have a friend who has a 140lb 5 year old. His mother is over 300lbs and is 6'2 and the father is 6'3. It's his birthday tomorrow he will be 6 and is hoping to get a pair of tennis shoes that light up. The problem is he wears a men's size 7 1/2. He is such a loving child and just wants to have the kind of clothing and shoes that the other children in his age group have. Where can I find shoes for little guys that have big feet? He is so sad because none of the children shoe stores we looked at carry his size.

Hello, My daughter is 10 years old and is 4"10 she weights somewhere around 132-138 depends on what day of the week it is. She is in dance 3 nights a week, swimming on wed, and is in basketball on sat. She also loves to jump on her trampoline. We eat fairly descent balanced meals and shes not a big junkfood junky.. HOWEVER>>>she still carrys her weight in her belly> She wears a size 16 1/2 pant. Sometimes 14 1/2 but what Im trying to say here is can someone give me advice as far as talking to her ?? I mean as a child growing up my mother was on me constantly and the more she nagged the more I gained. And now in my early 30's I am also overweight. I am afraid of hurting her or causing her the same agony I went thru. She is fairly popular at school and like I said active as can be...BUT she tells me all the time she wishes she were thinner...please help out if you can!

hi guys. When my I first posted here my daughter was nearing 400 and now im happy to say shes down to 302. Shes still quite large, but still its a big improvement and really makes a big deal to her. She now tries to get up early and jog every morning. She doesnt make it up everymorning but its such an improvment from staying in bed untill 1 pm and doing nothing. With youalls encouagment iv got her hyped on working out and I told her that if she gets down to 200 she can have a BMW so shes really into it. Any advice about diets would still help also activities that she can do by herself because she really is to embarressed to go to a weightloss program and admit to everybody that she is obese. Anyways thanks.
,vincent

why does it seem like kids eat so much more nowadays? It seems like they are really eating much larger portions....of very unnutritious things...I think this is a main problem..along with the fact that every activity revolves around eating....I don't have kids yet but I worry that someday they will become very fat...because of the society we live in....hmmm..

where can one buy clothes for a plus size 4 year old girl? To get clothes to fit, several inches have to be cut off and they don't look like a 4 year old.

I don't have overweight children, but my neighbor used to be very overweight as a child. She was 10 at the time. I had been away for a few months, and noticed significant weight loss when I got back. I asked her mother how she lossed it, and she told me through piano lessons. I was shocked.
She told me that the lessons gave her child discipline and self esteem. Practicing also diverted her attention from eating during the afternoon. Honestly, telling kids not to eat is like telling someone not to think of pink and purple polka dot rabbits. (That's the first thing you think of). Find a hobby for your child, or better yet an instrument. It has been proven that children do better in school, have more self esteem and discipline when they start learning an instrument.
It helps to have a great teacher and mentor also. My neighbor's piano teacher is still teaching in New York City. If anyone wants his number just email me lovelyday2005@gmail.com or you can find a caring, dedicated teacher in your area.
Good luck.

Hi. My son just turned 4 and he weighs approx 70-75 pounds. He is very happy and doesn't realize how much bigger he is than kids his own age. I know my son's weight is out of control and I know that it is my fault that he learned such bad eating habits. I decided in mid-June to try to lose weight myself hoping that getting rid of the junk and eating healthier would eventually get my son on the right track. I have lost 80 pounds so far and have about 30 more to go. But there has been no impact on my son. I tried feeding him what I was eating but he would not even try fruits or veggies. So I would eventually have to make him something else that he would eat, which I know I should not give in and do but he would cry for hours. This is so hard and I feel so bad because I know he got the bad eating habits from me but now that I'm trying to do something about it he won't even try the ... (view more)

Hi everyone, I have a 16 year old girl who is 5'7 and roughly 180lbs. She gained the bulk of her weigh over the past 6 months or so, since i started working again and she has the ability to eat at home while I'm not there. Her gaining the weight doesn't bother me as much as the way she's handled it. As much as I offer she won't buy any bigger cloths, and insists on wearing extrememly tight outfits and just lets her stomach stick out. What confuses me is that she doesn't seem to care at all. Anyone else have this trouble? How can a young girl not try to hide the fact that she became overweight? Thanks, Joan
