I also can't see how he's that overweight. I'm 5'8 1/2'' and weigh 235 and I can see over my stomach just fine. Don't have to lean forward or anything, though I do admit I'm overweight. I'm probably just one of the lucky ones though :) Don't get too worried about his weight, but you should be concerned! It's your job after all :) Your a parents and it's okay to be alittle over protective and worried sometimes, just make sure you keep heathly food in your home and you'll be alright. Also encourage excersize! Go on walks with him, spend time with him, try to get him into activities and encourage him to make friends.

your kid is only like 30 or so lbs overweight, how cant he see over his stomach? And are you supporting him, or just making him feel bad? Try working as a family to lose weight, even if the others dont have to, working together will help your son not feel bad about himself.
