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 Julia, child's age 16

My daughter was always a little heavy as a kid, but I never really worried about her weight, except that I tried to help her have a healthy diet. She started seeing her present boyfriend when she was about 14 and since then she has simply stopped listening to my advice about her diet. She has gained a huge amount of weight (she's 5'1" and now weighs 270lbs) but tells me that her boyfriend likes her chubby and that she doesn't see why she shouldn't eat what she enjoys. I am at my wit's end. Can you suggest anything?
