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 Tammie, child's age 17

Hello, this is my first time posting here. My daughter is somewhat chubby (5 feet and 140ish pounds). My problem is, she seems to take food whenever she is left home alone. Somehow she is still losing weight (she was 170 ish pounds) but I’m not sure how. Anyway, what do I do about her sneaking food? A few months back I found evidence of her hoarding snacks in a drawer in her room. Every time she’s left alone, food turns up missing. She’ll go through half a jar of peanut butter, or half a box of cereal, or bread, in one sitting while me and her dad are not home. I even think she’s eating the sugar and flour. I don’t know what to do.
