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 Janna, child's age 15

Please help me, I need advice. My 15 year old daughter used to be fit - a good size. Now she's growing by the day (and I don't mean taller). She's carrying the extra weight around her middle and in her face. She also thinks she can still wear all the same clothes she did before, and needless to say they are not flattering or appropriate. I don't want to cause an eating disorder or anymore tension than already exists. I, too, am overweight, and I don't want her to battle this for the rest of her life. She has very bad eating habits and refuses to change. She also thinks her friends are "way bigger" than she is. She doesn't see it.
