From Felix, child's age 16
I've been lurking on the site for the past few days and was about to write a post on the board about my situation when I saw yours! We are in the same boat, my son Jason is 16 as well and gained a ton of weight over the past year (the majority since the end of the previous academic year - June-ish), when he got a summer job. The summer job is at McDonalds and has continued into part time employment during the school term. Jason last saw the doctor in July of 2018 and he was around 180 (which was up a bit from the previous), at 5'9 and is hitting 220 last I am aware of.
He's always been on the huskier side but he's really gotten large this year. I'm not home so I can't see what he's eating on a daily basis (even though I have access to his bank account and often see purchases from fast food places on his account) but I see him every 2 or so weeks - my job is away from home - and he looks larger every time. He's been getting winded a lot recently and is refusing to work out. My wife has actually been on a health kick and is going to the gym near daily but he refuses to go with her.
Sarah, what does it take for David to get winded (stairs, general walking, etc.)? Have you noticed an increase in fast food consumption or portion sizes at home? When I've been home or Jason has come to visit me, he does eat more food then I've seen in the past - no fast food however because the nearest fast food chain/place is a good 10-15 minute drive away. Have noticed takeaways though.
