Hello, I'm a stepmother of a 7 year old boy who is 3'11" and 62 pounds. At age 5 he was 65 pounds. It's been a struggle to keep his weight between 60-65 pounds. My thoughts have been that he could grow into his weight. However the struggle mainly stems from his grandparents and aunt and uncle whom he spends a lot of time with. I have talked to them many times about the importance of good healthy eating habbits, but they just don't seem to listen. They feed him food as though he is an adult man as well as unlimited amounts of high fat and sugar snacks. He has gained as much as 3-4 pounds in a one week visit with them. Any suggestions on how I can either accept this or get them to work with me instead of against me?

you should always include protien in your child's diet,(or yours) because when you exersise you will only lose muscle, not fat.

Thanks for the advice. I talked to my sons today and they decided to lose some weight. I also talked to my ex-wife and her husband. They said that the boys can eat whatever they want to. (her husband is 5'11" and weighs 607 lbs; my ex-wife is about 5'5" and weighs 402 lbs)

Hello. I have a big problem with my 4 boys. They are all very overweight. I got divorced 3 years ago and my ex-wife got married to a large man. They (ex-wife & new husband) are gaining large amounts of weight and I think it is taking a toll on my kids. My 13 year old is 5'4" and weighs 237 lbs (last year he weighed 180). My 14 year old is 5'5" and weighs 291 lbs (last year he weighed 240). My 21 year old is in college and has put on so much weight. When he left to go to college, he was very thin (140 lbs.) and 6 feet tall. Now he is going to be a senior and weighs 358 lbs! The sad part is about my 16 year old son. He was 14, 5'9", and 150 lbs. When he got his work papers, he got a job at McDonalds. Now, 2 years later, he has put on 160 lbs and looks horrible. They don't even care that they are obese. My 14 year old son ate a whole gallon of ice cream in one sitting. Their... (view more)

Can anyone tell me how much a 16 year old boy, 5'9, should weigh? Also, how big should his waist be? My son weighs 180 lbs and wears size 36 pants. I know he's overweight, but I'm not sure just how much. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

I need help. This has more to do with being a parent then it does about my overwieght daugter. Her name is Elixa, and she is a spoiled brat. I had two girls before her, and even though I am a small, unstrong person, I was a little hard on them to cover for my husand (died shortly after my last daughters birth). Any way, after my 2 oldest joined the army, I went easy on my last daughter, and I let her slip. I dont know what happened, but she became spoiled rotten, and I wasn't able to fix her. She got what she wanted, as much as she wanted, including food. (Click here to see rest of message).

Hello, I want to talk about my very obese daughter named Sara, who is 213. She is the biggest child I have ever seen or known, and she is just getting bigger and bigger, and now she's thirty five inches around the waist. I have tried to put a diet on her, but we've only made small progress. You see, all her life she has stuffed her face with food, and only recently have I tried to stop her and put her on a diet. But I was too late..(Click here to see rest of message).
