From Susan, child's age 15
Hi everyone. My son Jude was fairly healthy looking and skinny for the majority of his life. But it was this past summer that he started packing some weight on. He stayed a couple weeks with my sister, and when I picked him up, he was noticeably fatter. All his clothes were way too tight. I was definitely concerned, and I took him to the doctor for his sports physical. The doctor said that he put on 45 pounds from his last check-up, weighing 200 lbs. He's 5'7" by the way. The doctor was very concerned and said that I should monitor his eating and excercise. But the problem is now, that he quit the cross country team because he says he can't run fast anymore. So he's clearly been putting on more weight not running. I'd say he's somewhere around 215 or 220 lbs now. Is there anything I can do about this?
