From Stacy, child's age 9
My son is 9 4'10" and 157 lbs., he outweighs his 16 y/o brother and is bigger around than my husband. Clothes shopping is a nightmare and he only wears sweats. Any basic activity has him huffing and puffing and he complains it hurts when he does anything active. We've tried many things to change his (and family) eating habits but he just continues to gain. His peds dr isn't too concerned and says he'll grow into it. But it breaks my heart and I lay in bed and cry sometimes because I know he is not happy and he can't keep up with other kids at school or even do basic things like shower and wipe himself appropriately due to his weight. Feeling kinda lost and just looking for support from other parents who are or have dealt with this.
