Over the last few years (since about 10) my son has been getting fatter and my wife and I didn't notice. On vacation he'd keep his shirt on when we went swimming. At home he wore baggy clothes to hide his size. Yesterday I walked into his room and he had shirt off and saw he had breasts. Not small ones either, ones almost the size of his mother. His belly was huge, soft and covered in stretch marks. I had been repressing the idea that he was big but now the evidence was clear. I weighed him and measured his gut (210 lbs and 51 inches!) and found out he was borrowing clothes from his bigger friends so that we wouldn't notice he was gaining weight. He did not seem to be bothered by his weight at all and does not want to lose. How do I put him back on the right path?

My daughter keeps gaining weight. I know she weighs about 200 lbs. her stomach is huge,looks pregnat. She exercises with her brothers, but, even though they are quite slim, she keeps growing. We cook quite healthy and exercise as a family, but her belly is massive, bouncing and jiggling and sticking out of her clothes. I love her, but I don't know what to do.

I am still struggling with my step-sons weight. As I said before, I've been married to his mother for about a year and didnt want to bring it up while we were dating or engaged but he is huge and no one seems to care. I've tried bringing it up with my wife but she says he's fine. He's not though. I don't know what to do. Can someone please help? Either reply on here or email me directly karlbarnard230@yahoo.co.uk

I believe my son is getting fat. He his 5'5 and is probably done growing. He was very skinny growing up until about a year ago. Last November he weighed 127 lbs on our scale. Now he ways around 140 lbs on the scale. However, I decided to test our scale's accuracy by putting 100 lbs of dumbbells on it, and it only came out as 95.6 lbs! So when I do the math, accurately my son was probably around 133 lbs last november and is now a little over 145! He used to be athletic when he was young but not so much in his teen years. Last year, his clothes were usually either 16-18 xl child size or small sized shirts, and wore size 28 pants. Now he has to wear medium sized shirts and his size 30 pants are ready to pop open! His waist is around 36 inches! Just last year it was not even 34... The majority of his gains are going to his belly and his chest. I am worried because he is most likely done growing, and his father is pretty large. Also, he is very picky and doesn't have a large appetite, however it has been increasing recently. Is he overweight? Should I trust my bathroom scale or no?

My son is somewhere between 4'8 and 4'10. He is very active and prefers water, juice, or fat free milk. He eats very little but he weighs 121lbs. I'm afraid that something is wrong or that he is overweight. He gets picked on for his weight at school because he is taller and is heavier than most kids in his class. He wears 16 husky pants and 16-18 size shirts. Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

I am very concerned about my son's weight. We adopted George 6 years ago. He was always a little pudgy, but never concerningly so. However, in the past 15 months or so, he has gone from 110 lbs to almost 165 lbs. he has always been well liked, and at his private school, he wears brand name polis and jeans to keep himself up to par with the other kids. The name brands do not make clothes that fit him, and when I go to pick him up, the front of his shirt is untucked and his belly fat clearly hangs out. He still goes to the pool with his shirt off, and isn't really made fun of. I'm worried that he doesn't realize he is overweight and will continue to pack on the pounds. By the way, he is 5'2" and has a short and stocky build. He recently turned 12. How do I addres this with him?

I am struggling with my step-sons weight. I've been married to his mother for about a year and didnt want to bring it up while we were dating or engaged but he is huge and no one seems to care.
He won't let himself be weighed so I don't know how big he actually is and it's a delicate subject around my wife. She and her family and his bio-dad feed him what he wants, when he wants. My wife will cook for us and a separate meal for him that's exactly what he wants. Every single day. He is definitely overweight and I'm worried he is going to become obese (or he might already be obese).
I dont know what to do about it either. His life is in his computer chair surrounded by all the snacks my wife brings him and stuck in front of a screen. She doesn't regulate his bed time so he'll stay up until 4 am playing grab a few hours sleep before school and again I can't seem to get it through ... (view more)

Hi all, I have a problem with my step-son's weight. Since July or August, he has gone from 150 pounds at 5'10 to 218 pounds at 5'11. He used to be on the cross country running team, but we moved this summer and has become extremely lazy since then. As far as I know right now, Mark eats breakfast at home and at school, lunch at school, a snack after class, a fast food (like a hamburger) on the way home, dinner and then some form of dessert. I have told him repeatedly that this is unhealthy and he needs to stop, but as he uses his own money, I can't stop him unless I take his money, which I can't because it is his earned money. Mark tells me that he will stop, but has become very nonchalant about it. It does not help that his mum does not think he is fat. His current activity level is extremely low, and he is starting to get winded from physical activity due to his rapid weight gain. At this point, I am totally out of ideas.
Thanks. If you have any ideas, you can email me at (mc_isidore@outlook.com) or post here.

My son 16 year old son has always been in great physical shape. We all take great care of our health and he has two older brothers (17 and 19) who also continue to exercise and stay trim. Carter has always very skinny, healthy, athletic and usually one of the best on every sports team. About 6 months ago and almost as if overnight, he had quickly deposited a very generous amount of subcutaneous belly fat, a full set of belly rolls and his chest fattened into mounds. He is a very smart kid, gets good grades and he basically said he didn't feel like doing any of the sports he was the team captain or a lead position on and decided to get lazy, eat more snacks than any person could ever need and lay around in his bed and play his xbox.
Within 4 months my boy had put on over 40 pounds. He'd never gained any weight before but last summer he couldn't even run a normal speed or keep... (view more)

I'm the child, not the parent. I'm fairly tall, but weigh 259 pounds. I cant do much exercise, my flab gets in the way of me doing even one situp, and it touches the ground during pushups. I'm astounded when I look in the mirror, my mountain of fat hangs over my pants.
