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.

If you are an adult and not a parent, type your child's age as '0'

From Matt, child's age 12

My son is very obese. He is 5'3" and 350 pounds. He has a bmi of 58 which is 28 units over the obese mark. He just can't lose weight. We've tried everything. He was fine until he was about 8. Then he was 75 pounds. By his 9th birthday he was 145 pounds. By his 10th he was 230. By his 11th he was 275. He's now at 350. I'm worried that by next year he may make it to 400! HELP!
