From Bill, child's age 12
I have a huge problem on my hands. My son is 12 years old, 5'4" tall and weighs 365 pounds. The problem I have is that he doesn't seem to be bothered by it. All of his friends accept him for who he is, and he very rarely gets teased because everyone can see it doesn't bother him. He even goes swimming in the summer, shirtless in the town pool, and no one seems to be bothered by it because he's been enormously fat since he was born. I am getting concerned because it can't be good for his health to be so very obese, though he doesn't seem to have breathing problems, or trouble getting around. When I bring up the subject of weight loss to him, he doesn't seem the slightest bit interested, in fact, once he even said he liked being just the way he is. What can I do to convince him to drop some weight, before he gets any bigger. I sure don't want a 400 pound 13-year old next year.
