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 Teresa, child's age 12

My daughter is Aleisha she has posted on here. She knows how to tell other people to diet, and some that she has told has actually lost weight. But she cannot get herself to try and lose weight. She is very unhappy. She is 4'11 and weighs 131lbs. She isn't very big just slightly big. But she is growing bigger and bigger. Her doctor even called her "pudgy". She has many friends but no boyfriend and no self esteem. If anyone has any ideas to help her lose weight please tell me. Almost all of her family are "big" including her father and I so that could be another cause. She may feel she needs to be big to fit into the family. But if anyone could please email her with suggestions because she does want to lose weight and don't worry she doesn't care to admit about her weight problem. Please give me suggestions to help her lose weight before she gets to big to do anything about it.
