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 Eric, child's age 13

Hi guys, recently (3 months ago) single dad here. Father of two, they live with me. I have to admit to being a pretty bad role model, as I am no exercise or sports guy except for random walks, and cooking and baking is a hobby of mine, and I am on the bigger side myself. My boys are not skinny, not fat, but on the chubbier side. After breaking up, they live most of the time with me alone, and that has resulted in weight gain, definitely. I am torn between wanting to do something about it or just being ok with it for now, because they are not that big. I also don't really know what or how to do it. Any inputs?
