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 Helen, child's age 20

My daughter has put on, I would say, over 75 pounds in the pandemic, being away at school. I almost didn't recognize her. I didn't say anything but, oh, my God...she was a size 8 and is now an 18, at least. She has a boyfriend and seems happy, as happy as anyone can be in these times, but I don't know if I should or shouldn't say anything. Her stomach looks like a truck driver's, an overhanging "gut" and her behind is enormous.
