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 Sue, child's age 13

Hello Everybody,I have one daughter who is thirteen years old. She is 5'1 and 131lbs. Although I know this isn't considered very overweight(she has to loose 8lbs to be in her healthy weight range), I know she doesn't feel comfertable about her weight. She never takes off her jacket unless she is wearing a baggy shirt underneath. Any tips to make her feel more comfetable would be greatly appretiated.
