Great tip for finding jeans to fit pre-teens. We buy my daughter jeans in capri style. She is 9 and quite short so I will buy her Capris in a 16.5 size these are the right length and fit great and are usually quite cute.

Hi, I'm from the Philippines. My son is 10 years old, about 5 ft. and weighs 150 lbs. He is about 30 lbs. overweight. He really enjoys eating and at a young age already enjoys gourmet food including sashimi. Do you know a weight loss program that would enable him to enjoy eating at the same time allow him to lose weight? I know that's silly but he's just a child and I don't want to put him in a great deal of pressure about his weight. He's not really insecure but I'm sure he will be when he reaches 12 or 13 so I want to do something about it now. Help!

My daughter is 5'5" and weighs 224lbs. She doesn't seem to care that she is overweight. She overeats and eats fatty foods. She doesn't excersise at all. My wife and i have changed our eating habits and gently tried to encourage her to alter her lifestyle but to no ends. Have any other parents overcome this problem. Any help would be greatly appeciated.

i would like to wish all of you all the luck in the world with your children. I have an over weight daughter. She is now 19 and lives at college. She has always been over weight no matter how hard me and my wife tryed to help her. At 5'5, she weighed before going into college (at age 17) 170. Now, going into her sencond year, she is at 210. It hurts me more then anything to see her so big. The college she attends is a d-1 (it's a NCAA term) but has loads of inter-collegent (sp?) sports to join, to wich she dosent. I know she is now coined an "adult" but is there still any way to help her? She lives one hour away, so she comes home often. Any help would be wounderful. Good luck to you all.

My daughter is 9 years old and has been overweight all her life. It runs on both sides of the family. I have a problem with finding jeans for her. She keeps telling me that kids make fun of her because she is always wearing sweatpants. Where can I find jeans that will fit the measurements of my daughter. They are: Waist - 38 inches Hips - 39 inches Inseam - 21 inches Chest - 36 inchesI tried looking at the but they are too small and I tried looking at JC Penneys but they are also too small. Can anyone help. Also has anyone ever thought that this would be one heck of a good business to start. It seems that there are a lot of us out there that have the same problem.

My daughter has been struggling with her weight for about 3 yrs now. Strangely she was an underweight baby and child until she hit 9, and I really don't know why. I've explored many reasons. She currently attneds the YMCA with me a minimum of 3 times a week, we are usually there 5 or 6 times, taking Sunday off. We started this 4 weeks ago, and she busts her butt, watches her carb and fat intake, and I can see her muscles toning. She however, is not seeing an "weight-loss" when weighing herself. She is 5'2" and approx 180lbs. She hates going to the doctor because he might weigh her, she "wishes" she would lose weight but isn't willing to commit to doing what it takes. I am so emotionally spent at this point, that I am asking any advice from you parents, before I seek professional help. I see her getting discouraged and withdrawn, and I don't blame her. I can keep a happy... (view more)

My son is 9 years old and his doctor told me that he is overweight-he is 104 pounds and 54 inches. It is very difficult to teach him how to control his weight when I grew up with bad eating habits in my household. I have eliminated the fattening foods in the house and replaced them with lower fat ones. At one point he did lose 6 pounds, because every time he wanted to overeat I told him he had to go on the treadmill for 1/2 hour. I seem to have lost control of the situation(from being to strict?). He is very fussy with his food and very reluctant to exercise. He got in the "tv" trap and now it is hard to break the habit. I try to keep him active, despite his reluctance. I don't seem to get much support from the family-they disregard my concern and tell me that he's growing and to stop being so hard on him. I wish that I knew for sure that I was doing the right thing?

For the past 5 years my son has been battling his weight and cholesterol.We are currently in a fitness program and have just scheduled an appointment with a local nutritionist.I feel like I have tried everything in the past and am very involved in my son's regime.I have actually lost weight,as I am a few inches taller and weigh about 40lbs less.
I will never give up as I have lost many relatives due to obesity related illness(i.e. heart disease,diabetes,kidney failure).Looking for some key advice that seemed to work for others regarding naturally lowering your childs cholesterol.Thanks!

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?
