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 Vicky, child's age 10

Hi, My son is an only child. He is 10 and 1/2 years old. He is 5'2" and weighs 148 pounds. He should weigh at least 33 pounds less. He is bored and lonely being an only child. I think he eats out of boredom. If any of you out there have a son who is also overweight, I would love for them to become internet buddies and try losing weight together. I think he would like that because he gets frustrated at me for talking about losing weight. I love him dearly but I don't want him to be ridiculed at school. I am scared for his health also. Please fell free to respond. Thank you........
