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 Lori, child's age 14

My daughter is now fourteen. She is the youngest yet tallest girl in her freshmen class. Being 6'0 tall already makes her feel more insecure because she's at least 5 inches taller than most of the other girls, and she has a larger stomach. She is 6'0 tall and weighs about 180-185lbs. She could be a lot worse, but I know if she lost at least 10 or 15lbs, she would be a lot happier. Does anyone have any good tips for me to share with my daughter?
