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 Katie, child's age 23

Hi. I am doing research on childhood obesity and would like to understand what it is like for the severely obese child in every day life. If you would be interested in being part of my research please email about your child and we can start to learn what it is like for him/her so that others can learn what it is like. My email address is I will also be putting together a web site to share the results of my research with everyone involved. I look forward to hearing from you. My research is really focused on the severely obese child and not the midly obese child.
