I have 4 boys all normal weight, but now my youngest one, 12 is getting fat. I just noticed it when we went swimming yesterday. His stomach was jiggling all over. But the worst was when he sat down, his new belly folded down over his waist. I couldn't believe it! His brothers also noticed and were all making fun of him. Later that night I mentioned something to him and he got all upset at me for noticing. I made him get on the scale and could not believe he put on 15 pounds since his last doctors appointment which was 2 months ago. He now weighs 118 and is only 4'11. What should I do???

I'm not a parent, I'm an older brother (age 16) But I thought that since you are all parents you could help me. My younger sister is 11 years old and 150 lbs. My parents don't do anything about her weight, and they let her eat whatever she wants. I have sat down with my parents and talked to them about this, but I always get in trouble for it. I really want my sister to be healthy, because shes really important to me. (I guesss you could say I'm one of those over protective older brothers). I don't want anything to happen to her, and it hurts me to see my little sister suffering from being overweight when she doesn't even know it. Can someone please give advice to me???

did it ever occur to all you parents to be suportive of your children and not make them feel like freaks. help them make healthier choices .. make them feel like they are special and make them feel loved. thats the best thing you can do. Ive read through some of these posts and you people nake me sick. and yes i am morbidly obese and im 27. ive been your kid. I know how it feels and its left me emotionaly scarred more than anyone can realize. to have our parents tell you your fat and lazy etc. is very emotionally scarring to the point of eating disorders and suicide. trust me i know .

My son is six years old. He's in first grade and weighs over 100 pounds, and he is only 4 feet tall!!!!!!!!! My wife says that he will "grow into" his weight. But it just isnt happening. His doctor is very concerned about the risks of being that large. My wife and myself are both obese and I know we don't always eat right and exercise and stuff. My son can barley walk though. He cries if you say anything about his size. And if you wont let him eat what he wants, when he wants, he throws a fit and stomps around. My wife feeds him ALL THE TIME! I dont know what to do anymore. Someone PLEASE HELP!

This is not really for my daughter, but for my neighbors daughter. They are a very nice filipino family that we get along well with but their 12 year old daughter is very fat and they dont seem to be doing anything about it. She is 4'11 and about 230lbs! The poor girl is so sweet but she is like an over stuffed pig that is becoming so fat year after year. The family doens't seem to notice and feeds her nonstop all the time. This poor girl just inhales all the food and it pains me to see a great little girl in this state. Her face is swollen, she has a huge belly, butt, and thighs, and she has so many rolls of fat! Please, can some1 give me advice on how to bring this up to my neighbors so they can try to get her to lose some weight. I cant just stand by and let this girl eat herself to that size. When ever i visit her i hug and talk to her and i notice how fat she is becoming and i feel so bad. Please some1 respond!

I was not an overweight child or young adult. Something happened in my 30's and my weight escalated. I tried every diet under the sun and couldn't seem to get the weight off. Eventually I underwent gastric bypass surgery and have successfully kept the weight off for almost 3 years. My daughter weighs approximately 226 down from 232. She has finally taken an interest in losing weight. I blame myself for her being overweight because during her formative years I was so overweight I never had the energy to exercise with her and encourage playing outside. Because of me she developed bad habits of snacking and watching entirely too much television and sitting in front of the computer. Now I have changed my habits and can't seem to find the right way to get her to change hers. As stated she has finally decided to try and cut her caloric intake but she's borderline just giving up and... (view more)

I think my child has an eating disorder. i have not confroted her about this because i do not want her to be upset with me. She is not super thin but i don't think she is overweight either. I not sure if it is very serious but she ALWAYS talks about her weight. She wants to diet all the time but i see her eating. i know she has thrown up before but i don't know if she does this regularly. She is 5 feet tall, 12 years old, and weighs 109 pounds. she is a dancer as well. she takes Ballet, Jazz, and Modern. I think she could be on the very brink of an eating disorder.
I dont know what to do.
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 19-year-old daughter came home from college 3000 miles away and I didn't recognize her at the airport initially---she has gone from a thin, athletic body type to a fat person--I mean she has gained about 50 pounds. We hadn't seen her since September 2004 because she spent Xmas with her boyfriend's family in Spain.
I am beside myself, and don't know what to say. I am still getting used to the shocking change. Her face, her rear end, her stomach---all blown up and flabby now.
What happened to my beautiful daughter???
