make compliments about him, (but not his weight because then he would feel like he doesnt have to lose.) and go walking with him, get to know him. make healthy meals, and learn what fruits he likes and stuff. make alot of chicken. it builds the protein. tell ur son he is special, because i know he must be! u r such a good parent to care about him like this.

Maybe you and your son should have a daily routine of exercise, Maybe at night you two can both jog a couple blocks and each month go a little further until you reach your goal.
Good Luck!
