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 Suze, child's age 13

Hi everybody, I need some help for my overweight daughter. She is 13, 5'2 and 134lbs. About a year ago, we moved and she was fairly active and ate healthy enough where we used to live. Now that we have moved, it seems all she does is sit around and go on the computer or watch TV. I try to get her out of the house(ie taking dog for walk, going swimming, sports, etc), but she always comes up with some excuse or another. I know she is uncomfertable about her weight because she is always wearing baggy clothing and sweatshirts even when it is warm outside. Although she is not seriously overweight, I just want her to loose a couple of pounds so both she and I will be happy. Any suggestions would be extremley helpful!Thanks,Suze
