From Chuck, child's age 14

I need some help. I have two sons and both of them are overweight. My 14 year old is 5'7" and 180 lbs. He can't even wear my pants. Shirts are okay, but my my 33 are too small for him. He barely fits into 34 comfortably. My 9 year old is 4'7" and 125 lbs. He has an especially large gut. At least he can wear my pants. That's not a good thing, though, except for the fact that I don't have to buy him pants. I had a weight problem when I was abou 12, but when I got into junior high I played football and began to slim down. I have stayed that way ever since. Neither one of them are interested in sports. I have thought about taking them to the gym to work out, but I was told that they are too young. They don't like low fat food because it doesn't taste as good as the real kind. Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated. I don't want them to be obese as adults.
