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 Zach, child's age 16

My son, has always been a bigger kid but never really fat until now. He joined the school swim team 2 years ago, and now the weight is just coming on. At 6 foot 4, its easy for him to disguise his eating as necessary, but what once used to be maybe just a soft belly, has turned into one that really sticks out. He started this year at 170, but has ballooned to 200 and im scared that he will only get bigger.
