From Joanne, child's age 11

My son started complaining this morning that his clothes are getting tight again. Apparently they've been feeling tight for about 2 weeks but now they are starting to be tight enough to hurt. What worries me is that I only just bought him new clothes in the summer and he doesn't look any taller. He doesn't ever let me weigh him so I don't know if he has gotten heavier and it's hard to tell if has gained weight or not. He is very resistant to any form of diet or exercise. I just don't know what to do.
