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 Lisa, child's age 10

My daughter is 10 years old and weighs 179 pounds. She is very active. She plays basketball, soccer, and softball for all but 2 1/2 months of the year. She swims every day during the summer and is biking, jumping on a trampoline, or just playing most of the time. We do not eat fast foods but 1-2 times a month, no fried foods and very little sweets ( cake, cookies, ect.). Yet she continues to gain weight at a steady pace. She does have asthma and a few minor heart problems. None of these should make her gain weight. We have just got an appointment to see a dietician to help us. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what we can do? We hope you find the help you are looking for and that your children reach their goals.
