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 Sara, child's age 13

Hi. I have a 13 year old daughter who is obese. She is about 5"3 1/2 in height and her pant size is 10 but I don't know if it is in Woman's or Juniors. She is an average athlete. She runs miles in 8 minutes and 30 seconds or less.My daughter weighs 142 lb, but in the summer she lost 5 pounds and seemed to gain it back.i am very worried for her, even though she has many friends and is almost at the top of her class.i tried to talk to her about her weight but she keeps shutting me down. Lately she's been sneaking food and lying to our faces. I just want her to be skinny or at least 110 pounds. I myself am 43 and weight 165 and my husband who is 50 weighs 170. My older son weighs 200 lbs but is only 5"7. He is 17 almost 18 and is very lazy. I just don't want to see my baby girl go down that same road. Please help!
