my daughter is very overweight she is 5'3ish and last time I checked she was 250 lbs. But that was over a year ago and she has gone through many clothes sizes since then. when we went to the beach a few days ago something terrible happend her tiny bathing suit ripped of showing everything. She has been eating non stop since then because of embarassment. Does anyone have a family member who is like this

I recomend to you to force your child into a very active activity wether it's sports classes try something competitive studies show that group competitions improve self-esteem it worked for my child she had no self esteem then i gave her a choice but made her chose something and she chose dancing she now lost 50lbs and has great self esteem and is healthy a horse well good luck :)

I THINK PARENTS AND OTHERS NEED TO STOP STRESSING OUT SO MUCH ON THEIR KIDS WEIGHT. LOVE THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE..SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE IS SO WORRIED ABOUT CHILDHOOD OVERWEIGHTNESS. ARE WE JUST MAKING THE MATTERS WORSE BY ADDING ATTENTION TO OUR KIDS?! HOW ABOUT THE PARENTS OF OVERWEIGHT KIDS, MAYBE SPENDING MORE TIME WITH THE CHILDREN TO GET THEM ACTIVE. MANY (PARENTS) SEEM JUST TO BUSY NOW DAYS..WHAT A SHAME!

My five year old son, just had his school physical yesterday. He is 89 pounds and 4 foot 2..Of course he is a big boy, and off their charts. I'm just wondering if anyone has a child in the same situation. THEY SHOULD MONITOR THE CHILD GROWTH BASED ON THE CHILDS HEIGHT VS WEIGHT. THANKS

But we still have about 5 more to go by this Saturday (weigh-ins).Does anyone have any suggestions? Also does anyone have any dinner ideas for the atkins diet that doesn;t consist of hard to find ingredients? Thank you so much!!

How do I keep my daughter motivated to stick with an exercise plan. We started in June, and she lost 10 lbs.! WAY TO GO. Then she went to camp, and now it seems it doesn't matter. She made good food choices and only gained back 3 lbs., but I can't motivate her to do any exercise. Our dr. advised 30 min. of strenuous activity per day and that is what really helped her. Responses PLEASE!!!!! Thank you

My daughter is 5'5 and almost 300 lbs and i'm very worried that if she don't lose weight soon that she will die. I want to tell her this but i don't know how to tell her i don't want to hurt her feelings or anything. She always tells me "oh i'll start a diet tomorrow" and then i ask her if she did and she said i really don't know what to eat. So does anyone have a list of some food she could eat and some exercises so i can help her. I want to cook her some meals that are healthy for her to have for lunch while i'm working and then i will cook her something healthy for supper. But i want to know what kind of healthy foods to cook that will help her lose weight. I have fresh fruit for her to have for a snack but meals well i don't know what to do about those.

I need some help with my two sons. My youngest is 16, 5'9" and weighs 200 lbs. He used to be very fit at 140 last year, but for some reason he has gained a lot of weight in the last year. My oldest is 17, also 5'9", but he weighs 240. They both have big guts, and they are constantly growing out of their clothes. My 16 year-old wears size 36 pants and large shirts, and my 17 year-old wears size 40 pants and xxl shirts. Can anyone tell me what size they should be and how to get them there? Thanks.

Hello my name is Eileen. I am a mother of 4. Three boys and 1 girl. My daughter Ellen is only 13 and 5ft3in, and 232. I don't even know what size she is any more because she doesn't let me or any of her friends go shopping with her. When she comes home from shopping she goes and puts her clothes on to show me. She puts on her clothes and comes out. One day she came out with a shirt that was like 2inches above her belly button. I asked her if it was a belly shirt and she said no it was a size 15 shirt a normal shirt(in womens plus sizes). Then she said that she thought it fit perfectly. Please help
