Hi Parents with overwgt kids. I am wondering if you have a hard time finding clothing that fit properly for your children. I was overwgt growing up and always had to wear clothes that look alot older than I did. My shop was sears. I am wondering if that has changed over the years?

Hi my name is michelle and my daughter is 5 1/2 and weighs 63 pounds, which normal range is 37-47 pounds. She is 3ft8in in height. I have to be honest I'm sure I have not helped her keep a healthy diet by letting her eat what she wants..I try to give a balanced meal at meal times, but her main problem is drinks and snacks she is constantly wanting a snack always hungry and always wants desert...she is not a couch potato..she plays inside/outside and I enrolled her in soccer to get her more active..i feel bad by telling her no I guess that is my problem...what should I do or start with to get her back on track to healthy eating. Thank you!Michelle

Hi. I am doing research on childhood obesity and would like to understand what it is like for the severely obese child in every day life. If you would be interested in being part of my research please email about your child and we can start to learn what it is like for him/her so that others can learn what it is like. My email address is childobesityresearch@yahoo.com. I will also be putting together a web site to share the results of my research with everyone involved. I look forward to hearing from you. My research is really focused on the severely obese child and not the midly obese child.

Really, parents. Yelling, threatrning, and punishing your kids over their weight and eating habits......is just gonna push kiddo away and piss them off, too eat even MORE.A calm and rational approach.......concern over kiddo's health,and happiness......is always best. And eventually your young one will wake up to the realization that SOMETHING about all the weight must be done, and he/she will begin to take the matter seriously. Of course, he/she might even like being big.....then support and love the young un for who they are inside. Yeah.........anyway, the teenage sage is outta here. Trip wishes you all peace.....

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?
