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 Joan, child's age 15

My daughter spent 6 months in Spain with a host family and came back almost 50 pounds heavier. I cannot believe the change---her stomach has two rolls, she has back fat and her rear is enormous. I had a talk with her and she says in Spain, boys like women with a little meat, and she doesn't plan to lose the weight. I had bought her a new dress, size 10 but she is now at least an 18.
