From Tom, child's age 12

My son had always been surprisingly fit, He never worked out or anything but somehow he was always toned and never had to worry about what he ate because it didn't seem to effect his weight. It was like this up until the beginning of last year right when the pandemic was starting to get out of control. Instead of his usual sports inspired days, he spent most of the day playing video games. I tried to encourage him to do things outside but he seemed to like his new lifestyle better. It went on like this for 3-4 months and I didn't notice anything different up until when I was looking at a photo of him from last December in our pool. In the photo he looked different somehow from the present. We were swimming the next morning in our pool when I finally realized what was different, he had gained at least twenty five pounds. He seemed like a different person, more interested in gaming then sports. The weight gain has continued and although hes playing soccer now, hes gained over 50 pounds in total
