My daughter is very interested in the Yoga Booty Ballet series. She is overweight, but not obese, but lacks will power when it comes to food. Has anyone tried this exercise program, have helpful hints and/or tips? She loves to dance, loves music, and wants to try out for cheerleading. The problem has always been her weight, i.e.: cut from the dance squad because the outfits would not support her "cleveage"....straight from the judge's mouth and written on paper. Talk about a self-esteem let down. She is not responsible for what was given to her in that respect, but there are more weight loss issues than just that. Any input would be appreciated before she spends her hard-earned $$ on this.

Hi. my daughter alexa who is 12 is doing great. she was 290 and is now 215. The problem is, my younger daughter Samantha, is following what alexa did, and is eating more. she sits in front of the television and eats. she was never really active, but she has never been like this. it started two months ago, but it wasn't that bad, but her belly is starting to expand. i don't want her to have problems with her health, and she won't listen to anyone in the family. Two months ago she was quite thin, please help my child.

My granddaughter is 7 years old and she's 4'6" and 114lbs. No one else in either side of the family is big. The doctor ran several blood test and everything came back okay except she has a high testosterone level. He is sending her to an endocrinologist. Is there anyone else with anything like this out there?

my son is 9 and 113lbs. He's extremely active has been wrestling for 4 years. Practice is 3 days a week and about 40 minutes of the two hour practice involve running and heavy exercise. He has been very concious and has been eating less. He typically eats healty things like chicken and fruit and doesn't drink soda. He does have a lot of muscle mass and is quite fast for his size, but definately carries extra weight. What do think?

Listen this is just a quick helper. When I was in 8th grade i was gona proably become overweight. I dont like to admit it to anyone now but yea it was true. So in any case I started running and that really shed the pounds, then I wrestled and then forget it it was great it got rid of all the exess body fat. Well here is my sugestion. I know it may be hard for your kid to do this. But try and get them into a sport they really love. Trust me it works. I mean I just ended wrestling like 2 weeks ago and its sad but I all ready have a tummy again and have gained like 10 pounds. But thats why im going to do spring track. By the time it starts I know that Ill be getting pretty chubby, but litteraly 2 weeks after I start it will all be gone. So just try and get your kid into somethign they really love.

Hi, my son is 4 years old. At his last well check, (last week) he weighed 68 lbs. I insisted that the dr do some labs to see if there was a medical cause for him gaining 8 pounds in the last 6-8 weeks. The dr reluctantly ran some tests, his fasting blood sugar was 100-Normal! then the office called and told me the dr wanted him back because his liver enzymes were elevated. What does that mean. Is it common in overweight kids or is there something I need to worry about while I wait till his appointment of Friday? I worry about my baby and have looked up all sorts of horror stories online. Any words of advice would be great!

Hi everyone. I just found this site. My son is 12 and weighs 192. He's had major health issues for a while which seems to have started the weight gain (he used to be really skinny) - he had a kidney disorder and feeling badly started that vicious cycle. He had the kidney removed last week and we're joining weight watchers together this weekend. We're also going to get access to our apartments workout room once the doctor gives him the okay for exercise. He's got a long way to go and he seems excited about it, but I'm afaid as soon as it gets hard, he's going to quit.

Where is the parent's responsibility in regards to these obese children. I log on and it seems that people enjoy talking about the weight of there children as if it shifts the blame to the is frustrating the parent is in charge and to blame you are the ones feeding your child AND doing the grocery shopping and I will gurantee most of you battle your weight as wake up and do your child a favor and change your habits and in turn you will give your child a healthy, happier and longer life span...stop talking and take action. There is NO excuse in todays world to wonder where the weight is coming from...we know to much to say " I don't know how Johnny got to 150lbs at age 6"...Please spare me, get real get active and change for your child if not for yourself!

Hi! I went with my daughter Lisa to the doctors office today. There she was weighted. She is now up to 164 pounds. I was quite shocked at the outcome. I know she gained a bit but not 14 pounds.
Her belly is really massive and has stretch marks all over. She wears men sweaters to cover her belly.

My child is 8 years old and weighs between 107 and 110. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can help my child lose weight. He really doesn't snack that much cause we live in a neighborhood that is full of children for him to play with. I am very worried that he is going to have cardiovascular problems down the road. I am taking him to a doctor to see if they will check his arteries. I feel sorry for him because he knows that he looks different from everybody in his class. Some of the kids that don't know him very well...have said ugly things to him about his weight.
