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 Suzannah, child's age 12

Hi...I am looking for other parents of overweight kids who want to email back and forth with support and ideas. My daughter is 12 and over 150 lbs. She is the sweetest thing and suffers so much from the kids teasing her. She has stretch marks on her belly, hips and legs. I know how she feels because I was a "fat child" and food addicted too. I have learned a lot and keep my house really healthy with no junk or soda. Unfortunately, her dad (we are divorced) keeps all sorts of garbage and feeds her junk food when he has her. I have tried appealing to him and even brought him to a nutritionists office. She explained the health problems our daughter could be facing and where he needed to improve. Nothing worked. He still gives her all the same junk food. I have talked to her about learning to make better choices no matter WHAT is offered to her, but I know how hard it is. Can anyone relate? My heart breaks for her because I know how much her self esteem has suffered and I want to help. Oh...a positive thing...we are going to Curves together!
