My 11 year old daughter is overweight. She is about 5ft tall and weighs about 135 Lbs. I am very concerned about her. She gets so madd when I try to talk to her about it. Her best friend is a twig and when we go shopping for clothes and her friend comes she starts to cry about it because her friend can buy clothes and they wont have my daughters size. I tried to tell her that if she would stop eating so much junk food then she woldnt have this problem. I think she eats when she is bored or upset. She gets it from me. I dont know what to do without hurting her feelings. Can somone help me PLEASE.

My daugther becca and her boyfriend recently broke up. as you can imagine that has been hell in our household...which anyone who has a 15 year old daughter will stand by that with me. she broke her leg in may and at that time i noticed her putting on weight but i thought she would loose it after she got her cast off. now that becca's leg is ok she is still having the same bad habits. she's works during the summer and when she get's home she's tired and she just eats, watches tv, and goes on aim. a couple of nights ago me,becca, and my other daughter went out to eat then we went for ice-cream. becca had put on a pair of jeans that looked extra tight even though i just bought them a week ago. while becca was eating her icecream the button on her jeans opened and we couldnt close them. when we went home i saw her weight was 158.5 wit a 33% body fat. i was on a site and it said ways you can ...

my son recently got a job with my mother in law at a kithen of a retreat center. He got the job a few months ago and since then he has gained 25 pounds. his stomach is most definetely larger now, he has gone up two waist sizes, and when we went to the beach last week i noticed fat rolls on him, he has never been like this before. i believe the cause for this is that he is constantly around food all the time at the kithen and since his grandmother works their, she allow him to eat some of the leftovers. at first i wanted him to quit, but then i realized the job was important to him. what should i do before he gains even more weight? by the way, he's 5'6 and weighs 173, he used to weigh 155 or so.

My son is getting really stressed at going to school, having headaches and stomach aches, He doesn't want to go back to school, he wants to go to another school, my biggest fear is, they may not let him into a new school not to mention the teasing just may continue, what should I do??

my daughter is at weight loss camp and this is her 3rd week.i was reluctant to send her but she was very keen i thought it was very expensive £2000 for 5 weeks and unlike other countrys in england no kids go away to camp so it wasnt the norm, well i can honestly say its the best £2000 i have ever spent she phoned today and she is having a fab time and her words to me were i love you mum but im not missing home theres to much to do and its just like home,she has already lost weight and is enjoying all the food and excersize. it seems a shame to me that more overweight children cannot be funded for these camps as a lot of people could not afford this kind of money as it will definatly be my daughters last time i could no way afford it next year .

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 :)

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
