From Seong Hwa, child's age 17

I am worried for what to do about my son Jeongguk. He is 6'1, very tall for our family, and I think he weights about 270 lbs but I think it could be more. All his family told him that he needs to eat healthier, exercise, and mostly eat a lot less than what he does. It is very sad to see my youngest child do nothing but eat all day when he is at home. His friends comment on it and play with his belly to tease him, his older brother do this too, but he does not seem to care. He gets out of breath going grocery shopping,climbing stairs in our house and tying his shoes even but when I point it out he just ignores me. I talked to his girlfriend one month ago, she said he told her he wanted to lose weight. This made me happy and I thought I would see him change but he still eats a lot and I think gained even more weights.
