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.

If you are an adult and not a parent, type your child's age as '0'

From AnnaLise, child's age 14

My daughter Laurie is 14 years old and 5'8" she weighs 140 lbs... thats a good weight for her. But she doesnt like it. And the only exercise i can ge her to do is dance or cheerleading which is good but expensive and she wont even do it with me ... jus with friends. I want to help her but i dont know what more i can do. She has a friend who weighs 127 and she wishes she could look like her all the time. Please reply ... I need some diet ideas for her or else im afraid she might never be happy
