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 Laura, child's age 10

My daughter is 10 1/2, 5' 1 1/2" and 134 lbs. Her BMI is in the 97th %ile. Blood tests have ruled out underlying causes. We are generally a nutritionally sound family - we drink only skim milk, we don't eat in front of the TV, etc. We indulge sometimes but for the most part stick to healthy foods. I'd like to know if your tween girls have had success in slimming down - either by losing weight or by maintaining weight while growing. TIA!
