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 Judith, child's age 12

Hi. I'm not a parent but I am a child who is overweight. I was a little skinny until I was around 8 or 9 and I gained a bit of weight and I don't know what happened. I am now trying to lose about 20-30 pounds because I am 4 feet and 10 inches (147.5 cm) and I last weighed 128 pounds and I was weighed last month. I haven't lost any weight that I can see but I also haven't done much about it. I am looking for some diets to try that aren't very extreme and or some exercises I can do. What are somethings that worked for your children? Weight is something I feel is a scary topic and I want to feel good about myself again. I want my life back and I think my health should be coming first. Thanks for listening and thank you for helping.
