Hello. I am not a parent, but I wandered to this sectoin of the site and began reading some posts. For my entire life I have been a heavy child, I weighed 155 pounds when I was 12. Well I believe it all started when I was 90 pounds and my doctor told me I needed to lost 10 pounds... from that moment on I just began gaining weight like crazy. Mostly from sneeking the food my mother told me I couldn't have. I would cry myself to sleep at nights, thinking my mom loved my brothers more because they could have desert after supper. It wasn't until I was 12 when I decided I hated being fat. I felt completely deprived and didn't want to waste another day of my life being fat. I went on Weight Watchers, following my mother's adivice, and lost 5 pounds in the first week. I am now 129 pounds and 5' 6". I've never been so happy and I can say I am actually proud of my body. I'm still looking to lose ... (view more)

My child needs help! My daughter Kiera is 11 yrs old and she is 146 lbs and about 5'2. And I'm only 32 yrs old and 155lbs and 5'5!!! I don't know what to do. And I think she got an eating disorder when she went to my sisters home in Nevada. When she went one summer she came back as big as me! I was shocked! From then on she has been like that up till this day!

hi, i'm not a mother but an older sister. i'm worried because my little sister is getting fatter every day. she is 14, only 5'2 and weighs more than 250. so she told me. our parents are fat, too, and when we eat we only eat burgers and fries and icecream. i'm trying to eat healthy so i'm not that fat. but my sister just eats what's on the table and it isn't healthy. what can i do? i think she will get fatter and fatter if she doesn't stop to eat like that. our mum weighs more than 400 and doesn't care about her body and our dad is more than 350. when he's at home he's just eating and eating. mum is cooking all day. there's food everywhere you want. my sister goes to the fridge and takes what she wants. what can i do? i feel o helpless.

My son is very self-conscious about his weight. he is 48" and 109 lbs. He refuses to go to any swimming activities unless he can keep his shirt on. And he says he's "fat." I feel so bad about how he feels. He loves all food and I try to help him make healthy choices and to eat slower but he does end up sneaking food. Plus he is very inactive. He is not interested in sports, he's a bookworm and computer fan. He has made a New Year's resolution to lose 10 lbs. and actually began an exercise program that I do called Power 90. He is very excited but I can't help but worry about his self-esteem. I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts and would like to get in touch with others for support. Thanks.

My son, Jason is 17 years old. He's 6'1" and weighs around 280 lbs. He has never really been small, but he started gaining alot of weight when he was 16. He used to way around 175 lbs. That's over 100 lbs. he has gained in only 1 year. He said the reason why he gained alot of weight was for football. I took him to a dietrician, but the Doctor wasn't very helpful, he simply said just put him on a diet. I have tried to keep him away from fattening foods and motivated him to exercise, but I am a single mom and I have to work. Jason is quite a big eater. He can pack down alot of food when he wants too. It definitely shows in his gut. His stomach is huge. He just doesn't seem to care that he is so heavy. I have told him many times that it is very unhealthly but he is a fighter and doesn't want to take any advice from mom. My other son Justin is 20. He is 5'11" and only weighs 110 lbs. He is...

I have a 14 year old who loves football. Last year when he was 13, he played for a local little league team. He was very skinny 13 5'9 139lbs. When the seson ended, he and his coach were going to move up to the same high school team. He tried out and didnt make it and his coach said that all the spots were filled for the next year or two, except for center, and if he wanted to be center, he had to ain a lot of weight. He agreed and started eating Junk food non stop. Whenever I tried to stop him, he would say " I eat because I love football, if you stop me, you wont love me." he made me feel guilty. Then after a year he was 14 5'10 and 311 lbs. Tryouts were 4 months ago and he didnt make it because the same coach said that he was too heavy. Because of that,4 months later he is now 14 5'10 331 lbs. There is a huge Gut were his six pack used to be, and his big arm muscles are now all flab and no muscle. I look at a pictue of him last year nice and skinny, and now Fat or Obese from head to GUT to toe. And he still loves Football. What should I do?
