Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Steve, child's age 13

My son is quite overweight. He is 5' 4, and weighs about 150 pounds. He was 160 about three months ago, and he's been trying to lose weight by walking for an hour on the treadmill everyday. However, he can't seem to control his eating. We found that he averages about 32 grams of fat a day. How many calories and grams of fat does he need? His waist size has dropped from 34 to 33, which is pretty good, but its still too large. Does anyone know what I good waist size would be for him? I also have a weight problem. I'm 5' 10 and weigh about 230 pounds. I also wear a size 38 in pants. Does anyone know what I good size for me would be? We're trying to do this together, but we just can't control our eating. Tips on any of this would help.
