Hi, my name is Colette. my daughter is 11 years old and just got weighed in at 236lbs when i talk to her about her weight she gets mad and cries and doesn't want to talk to me about it. I tell her that I am concerned and worried about her weight and know that it's hard at times but we really have to do something about it. I even showed her this web site and she said that she wasn't interested in it. I have video tapes and we are members of the ymca here in town, but swhe shows no interest. She even has a nutritionist but nothing seems to work. I am disabled and can't do a lot of the activities that regular parents can do with their child. PLEASE SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME ADVISE on what to do. I can take some critizim if needed.

My son and I are starting to loose weight. I have a question though. My son weighs about 290 pounds and has stretch marks. When he looses weight will their be excess skin?

My daughter has always fit in well in her school, despite her size. She wasn't embaressed about her weight either, because to her there was nothing to be embaressed about.-- none of her friends thought it was "wierd" to be fat". This past week I took her to the doctor because she had a virus. Before then I never really concentrated on the fact that she was overweight, maybe even obese. It wasn't until after she stepped on the scale that I noticed her stretch marks on her arms, calves and thighs or how out of shape she was that she'd be greatly out of breath after just walking up one flight of stairs. She stepped on the scale and finally it stopped at 214 pounds and she jumped of just as fast as she changed the subject. Last night I brought up the incident at the doctor's office and how I think it's un-healthy for a 14 year old who's 5'5" to weigh 214 pounds. She started crying because she thought I only wanted her to lose weight because I was embaressed of her. She didn't want to listen to me and I am to scared to bring it up again... what should I do?

My daughter Jen has recently gained a lto of weight. I know its pretty normal to gain about ten pounds a year, but Jen has gained about one hundred and ten pounds within the last six months. Jen refuses to go to the doctor, and had a fit when the nurse weighed her at school in front of her peers. I recieved a call at home from the school nurse notifying me that my daughter was severely overweight at 357 pounds at only five foot one. I was incredibly shocked, as I only weigh about ninety pounds. My daughter sleeps most of the weekends away, and I suspect eats heavily when she gets home from school. I find candy wrappers all over her bedroom and she never exercises. She has told me that she is doing very well in PE and has a small body weight percentage in health class, but after my first call form the nurse, I found it nessesary to look into this. According to her teacher, she did not... (view more)

My daughter was always a little heavy as a kid, but I never really worried about her weight, except that I tried to help her have a healthy diet. She started seeing her present boyfriend when she was about 14 and since then she has simply stopped listening to my advice about her diet. She has gained a huge amount of weight (she's 5'1" and now weighs 270lbs) but tells me that her boyfriend likes her chubby and that she doesn't see why she shouldn't eat what she enjoys. I am at my wit's end. Can you suggest anything?

parents pay a lot of part in the way their children act , so if your child is overweight something happened to them, wether a divorce, no friends , u need to sit down with them and talk and kids like me i know u know what im talking about , you take all your emotions and hide them inside and try to eat them away so when ur stomach hurts you dont think about them and you want to talk to someone about something but u just cant and before u know it your overweight wondering what's wrong-SPEAK UP
