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 Tim, child's age 13

Since the new year my son has put on 30 pounds. It came as a bit of a shock after going to the doctors yesterday. It seems though that he doesn't care at all that he has gone from an average 130 to 160. He has outgrown all of his pants and most of his shirts. I'm trying to get him motivated but it seems like he doesn't care -- like he almost wants to gain weight. Help me before my child becomes obese!
