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

We are new to the site and love it so far. If you count calories, for exericse, where do you get a complete scale? Our Dr. said 30 min. of vigorous exercise per day. My daughter has maintained for 2 months and really wants to lose before school starts. Calories in -- calories out seems to be a good starting point. We don't eat fast food a lot so counting grams of fat and starches for home-cooked food baffle me. If you have anticipated from this message, I have been called "underweight" all my life so identifying for me is a problem. My daughter wants to look like me, which I DO NOT recommend. Encouragement or advise would be more than welcome!!

My 8-year-old stepdaughter is 4 feet tall and 125 pounds. This is a 3 pound weight gain in the two weeks since she was last with us - we have visitation every other weekend. While with us, I watch her food intake very carefully...even her 11-year-old brother tells her to stop shoving in her face. Her Dad (my husband) is completely embarrased to be seen in public with her. Bathing suit shopping is a difficult enough experience for most of us - we ended up getting a ladies size large tank suit for her. What concerns me is 1) the bio-mom doesn't think her daughter has a problem 2) both bio-mom and bio-dad are diabeticand 3) no one at school or church wants to step in and make a report of medical neglect. HELP!

Hey, I am a parent. I need advice. My step son who lives with me is very over weight. He is 16 and at least 75lbs overweight. His mother is also very overweight. They make fat jokes about their problem. That bothers me. I try to talk to him about healthy food choices and he says that he is just fine with the way he is and that they make jokes because they accept themselves. I don't think that is really the case. I think people make jokes about themselves when they are uncomfortable about themselves. Anyway, he just keeps getting bigger and I worry about his self-esteem and his physical health. How can his father and I talk to him about this and get him to open up?
