From Rachel, child's age 11

Feeling overwhelmed with guilt. My child is 11 and weighs 240lbs. I have fought with my husband for years to help me keep his weight under control, but he still overfed him behind my back. My in-laws are all overweight and have complications because of it. My husband has become diabetic and takes blood pressure meds. I am overweight myself and have failed to control my own weight. Just feel defeated most of the time. I take my son to work out but he battles me and sneaks food. I am at my wits end. He has no motivation and he is a mirror image of his father;eats too much, too often, only wants to watch movies and play video games. I am the only person in my sons life that tries to make a change. What do you do when there are no strong male role models or any positive role models in your child' life? Sorry if I come off aggravated :-( I am....
