Hello everyone, I first posted this on the Teens' Board a couple of weeks ago and got only once reply.Now that this Board is active again, I'm updating it and posting it here. PLEASE, I NEED YOUR ADVICE, PARENTS. I'm the aunt of a boy named John, who came to live with us (my husband and me; we were childless until John came to live with us a year ago) because his mom (my husband's cousin) had been neglecting him. John came to us last June and he was seriously underweight. The doctor said he was 57" tall and weighed only 68 pounds and at the physical with his shirt off I could see how all his ribs showed. For the first 2 weeks I tried to get John to eat more at meals but he didn't eat that much and then I began to make him treats like a milkshske before bedtime and things like that because the doctor said he was so underweight. Then John began to eat more and by the time school started he... (view more)

Hi my name is Emily and I need some suggestions in helping my child get in shape. I took Michael to the doctor last week for a check-up because he was coughing alot lately and it was his first time to the doctors in over 2 years since he doesn't like going there. So the doctor gave Michael a full physical and he was very concerned about his weight as he was 5'7" in height with a 50 inch waist and weighed 295 lbs. Needless to say I was shocked when the doctor gave me my baby's weight and measurements,I always knew he was a big boy but I thought he was mostly average compared to other kids his age because most of his friends where around his size. Now I know he needs to lose weight but I don't know how to get him started when he has spent everyday of summer vacation so far locked up in his room eating, sleeping, watching tv & playing videogames. from his bed. He only comes out to grab... (view more)

My daughter is pretty big. I don't know how much she weighs or anything, but she's fatter than any of her friends and I often cannot find anything in stores that fits around her waist. That's not the issue though; what really worries me is her fitness.
In an attempt to get her more active, I convinced her to join me in a selection of exercises. However, she could hardly do any of them! She couldn't do any sit-ups, couldn't even hold her own weight, never mind do a pull-up. Her stomach is too big to do a press-up; it touches the ground when her arms are fully extended. When we tried some running, she was exhausted and gasping for breath after 30 seconds gentle jogging. I'm really worried, because apparently she's late for classes because she has to rest at the top of staircases after climbing them.
How should I approach this? She seems very unwilling to do any more exercise, as she says it made her chest hurt badly last time.

Hello, I am writing about two of my 3 sons,Adrian and Benjamin. Adrian, the oldest at 16, is 5 feet 9 inches tall. I'm not exactly sure of his weight but he is between 235 to 250 pounds, I think closer to 250. Adrian does not like to exercise and he gets winded after 5 mins of activity, especially during gym (2x week at school). He likes to snack (binge) on pizza after school, hiding it from me. He does this at least 4x a week, as I see him. (Bus home passes pizza place). Since the beginning of the year, he has put on about 15-20 pounds. All of his weight goes to his stomach and has a 54 inch stomach and a 45 inch waist. Wears a 44/34 or 46/34 and xxl shirts. In Jan, he wore xl shirts and 40/34 pants.
Ben, who is 14.5 is short for his age at 5'3 and he weighs 175 pounds. He sits in his room and gorges on junk food. As his brother, he gets winded easily. He wears a size large... (view more)

My son Carlos is a 15 year old incoming high school freshman. Very nice kid but has severe ADHD and other underlying emotional issues being explored. He is supposed to take a fairly large dosage of Concerta each day but has become very inconsistent with doing it. When he doesn't take Concerta, his appetite is voracious. He does not and has no interest in exercising. He is about 5 foot 8 and 200 pounds. It took us a long time to notice as all he wears (even before the weight gain) are baggy shorts, t shirts, and hoodies. His dad and I want to help, we both exercise regularly. We only keep healthy food in the house. However Carlos has a lot of independence. He does walk to light rail which stops right next to his school but we live in an urban area with a lot of food options at the light rail stop at school. It does not seem wise to take away a high schooler's allowance. Any help on how to help carlos would be appreciated

In January I posted here to talk about my daughter. At the time she weighed in at 282 pounds. It is now June and when she was weighed in March she was 294 pounds. One week ago she came to me and said that she had taken a pregnancy test and it came out positive. The issue of her and her boyfriend being pregnant at 16 is a whole separate topic. My main concern now is that she is probably around 300+ pounds(last time i knew her weight was march)at only 16 years old and now has to carry a baby for 9 months. It is dangerous to be pregnant and obese. I can't even see a "baby bump" yet because it all still looks like fat. When we went to the OBGYN she expressed concern over her weight and warned my daughter that it would be dangerous for her to gain too much weight during the pregnancy. The problem is she continues to eat like she always has and when I tell her to stop she says she's eating for... (view more)

My daughter Alexis (who shares the same name as I) is very overweight. She is 5' 3" and I suspect 240 lbs. She just eats and eats and eats. She goes to friends houses a lot and they are very large aswell, and their parents just let them eat whatever. Her clothes have recently stopped fitting, and her belly has been very exposed. Can anyone help? Also, if anyone would like to have their son/daughter talk to her that would be great. I've posted before but to no avail, please respond.

Hi, I'm posting this to see if any parents have any helpful suggestions to help me get my daughter motivated to get healthy and lose weight. She is a beautiful girl and has a heart of gold. She is 5'2" tall and I suspect about 190lbs. She loves to eat but is very lazy. She plays a couple of sports throughout the week, but they are only for an hour each. She loves to go but is there more for the social aspect then the exercise itself. We have had many talks on eating healthy and getting fit. We encourage her, have tried to motivate her, even with a rewards system... New wardrobe, money etc but nothing seems to work. I've offered to join the gym with her, boot camp etc. I've even tried to scare her with the health risks... Diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. She seems to get excited, motivated, then within a day or to isn't interested.

My husband and I do shared parenting with his ex-wife. The 11 year old weighs 140 lbs. I have been privately trying to tell my husband and his ex to control her eating. when she is at my house she eats good, but her dad lets her eat as much as him or more. which I try to control but it is a losing battle. when she is at her moms (who is very over weight) she eats all she wants, when she wants, as much as she wants. I try saying stuff but his ex-wife and she gets soooooooooo mad. I try talking to my step-daughter casually about it but she just pretends to care then turns around and eats! I also know that when I do cut out soda, limit candy and ice cream she goes to her moms and makes up lost time. Once her mom told me that she lets her eat a whole bag of chips and drinks a 2 liter of pop in one sitting. she seen the look on my face and rudely asked what should she do then, I replied how...

My daughter is overweight. Her belly is 38 inches around and stretch marked. Her belly is round like a pot belly instead of flabby. She doesn't exercise. Worried she might already be developing heart disease. What do I do?

I know it says I'm the parent, but the sixteen-year-old is actually me, and mg name is Evette. I'm fifteen, 5'2", and 137 pounds. I've always liked to thinknof myself as a pretty girls, but is it possible to be pretty AND fat at the same time??? I don't think so. My Dad says he's embarassed to be my father because I'm so fat. He says he's ashamed that I'm going to the college he wen to. He says things like "your arm looks as big as my thigh!" And "you look like you weigh 150 pounds. I want to change, but I eat for comfort and when I'm afraid. Help!

I have to resort to making my 15 year old daughter stop eating completely. I am out of things to do. I make her excersize, she only eats healthy foods, but she just keeps getting fatter! When she was 10 she weighed 147, that's more than me! Ever year she gains more and more, this year, we went to the doctor 1 week ago for her yearly check up and she was a whopping 267 and only 5"2!!! She is huge, and honestly it disgusts me. I make her run, but she can't go far. I also made her take the stairs at the place we went to yesterday and after only two flights she had to sit down. I am disgusted with her body, what she looks like, and her huge weight.

My daughter Sydney is 13, she is 5"4 and weighs in at about 160 pounds. She is active and has a lot of muscle but her stomach and breast (middle) area is VERY large. She is a bridesmaid in my sister, her aunts wedding that's coming up this September and we just did dress measurements, she came out to be a size 27 so we have to get her dress somewhere else because the bridal shop everyone else is getting theirs from does not carry that size. She wears size women's 24 pants, but they are way to tight on her, creating red marks and when she wears them you can clearly see the bulge of fat that shows through her triple x-l women's shirt. She wears a 42-DD but it is also, tight on her. Because of her depression with all of this, I simply can not get her to stop eating. No, I'm not a horrible mother, I don't want her to stop eating, but she needs to stop shoveling it in. I buy less food, and... (view more)
