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

Help! I can't believe I'm even writing this, but I don't know what to do. My 16 year old daughter is extremely overweight, and I don't know what to do. She had her yearly appointment today, and she weighed in at 302 pounds. I can't believe this is possible. I know she's been gaining weight for the past year, but I am flabbergasted. I knew it was going to be bad because she just looks so huge and bloated. I thought maybe I was just being overcritical but obviously not. What can I do? The last time I mentioned her weight, she ended up gaining 20 more pounds in five weeks.Her father refuses to take her out anywhere with him. I know she is bothered by this, but I can't find a way to mention it. After the doctor today, she said that she's glad that she's too big to do anything strenuous. What can I do?

I am at my wit's end. I hope somebody can help. My daughter is 14, and has steadily been gaining weight for the last year. Yesterday, she had invited some of her friends to our lakehouse for the 4th, and it was the first time I'd seen her in a swimsuit all summer, and she was just so much bigger than her girlfriends. She just jiggled everywhere when they were running around, and her stomach just hung out there. To top it off everytime I turned around she had something else in her mouth. She must have had at least 5 hot dogs and half the brownies one of our neighbors brought. She wouldn't touch the fruits and veggies we had. I weighed her this morning, and she's gaind 5 pounds since last week. She's up to 195. I can't believe that she's going to hit 200. She's only 5'4".What can I do. She won't talk about it. We just end up getting in a screaming match. She couldn't even get up on her waterskis like she used to. How can I get her to understand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok sorry I'm a teen , but i have been reading the messages for a year now , there were a few messages that bothered me, the one where the father was ashamed to be seen with his kid in public and one where the father embarassed their kid with their online boy friend, I know you all love your kids but I find some parents complaining, well two things i just have to ask/say 1) why are you complaining when it's not your fault your kids are overweight 2) If your child was not able to see that it was wrong on how they were eating it is your fault because you should've been caring for them since you love them so much, Thank ypu for reading this.

hi everyone, my daughter is 8yrs and weighs about 112lbs. i don't let her pig out on junk food but does eat some. she's a very outgoing child she likes to go for walks, ride her bike, swim, rollerblade and do just about anything that sounds like fun. we eat as healthy as possible. she likes fruit,vegetables,yogurt,lowfat pudding,sugerfree jello, etc, ect... so we eat a lot of good things. except for white bread, white rice, noodles, and loves mashed potatoes. i know that thoughs are not the best choices. i would like her to learn to try other breads so i don't have to buy white bread. does anyone have any ideas that might be helpful? thanks.

Hey everyone my child is extremely overweight i'm very worried for her health. She is 15 and she weighs 237 and she is only 5'6. She wants to lose weight but she says she needs to lose about 140 pounds and she is scared if she loses that much she will have a lot of extra skin there from all of the weight loss. Is there any thing she can do where she won't have any lose skin and what do you think would be the easiest way for her to lose weight but not have to starve herself? If you can help please reply asap! Thank You
