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 Travis, child's age 17

This is about as much for me as it is my kids. All the men in my family are overweight. Me, my dad, my brothers, and my 3 sons. Therefore, we tend to eat a lot on Thanksgiving. In fact, we pretty much eat all day and end up gaining weight. My dad is 5'11" 250 lbs, my youngest brother is 26, 5'9" and 220 lbs, my other brother is 34, 5'9" and 235 lbs, and I am 39, 5'10" and 215 lbs. I have always hoped that my kids wouldn't turn out like us, but the totch passed. One of my sons is 17, 5'9" and 210 lbs, my 15 son is 5'9" and 195 lbs, and my 14 son is 5'7" and 175 lbs. If anyone can help us out and give me tips about how to not eat until we can't move, it would be very much appreciated.
