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 Cathy, child's age 18

My 18 yr old daughter has always been a "bigger" girl, but I had always kept her very active in sports so she always looked good/healthy. When she was 17, she started to have issues with anxiety and depression. She quit soccer and gained a bit of wt and started looking fat. Now she is secretly bing eating and has probably gained 50 pounds in the last 6 months. Most likely 220-250lbs. It's a sensitive subject. She's going away to college and I worry about her gaining another 50 lbs! (She is seeing a psychiatrist and a therapist) The rest of the family is ht/wt propotioned, we have nothing but healthy food in the house; but she goes to the store and buys bags full of junk food and sneaks it into her room( I find the empty packages) Help! What do I do!!! I am feeling embarrased by her and find her belly and heavy breathing repulsive, yet I adore her
