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 Melanie, child's age 15

I'm having problems with my daughter, Krista. She has always been very big, weighing around 240 lbs before the pandemic started. She was fairly active despite her size, though. But then we went into lockdown and for the first few months she preferred to stay in her room and became a lot less active. She also started eating more. To put it mildly, her weight ballooned and now, 18 months later she is a little over 350 lbs. I have tried talking to her about it but she doesn't seem to listen. She just tells me she knows she is big and to leave her alone about it. But she just keeps eating and I'm certain she is just going to keep getting fatter if she doesn't stop. I'm at my wits end and don't know what to do.
