I wrote a while back about the problems I was having with my (450lb) daughter. I tried getting her to exercise carrying the weight around was too much for her. She'd go a few feet, but after heaving her bulk that far, she'd be panting, sweating, crying for me to let her stop.
After a few days she just gave up, and she's put on more and more weight. I'm sure she's pushing around 500ish now. She's only 5'1. She doesn't bother to move very often now (only from the sofa to the bathroom) I have to have her brothers help her stand. She can't get up under her own power anymore.
I'm so worried, because it's my poor daughter under that mound of blubber. She looks lost in it. I've asked the doctor to do a house call, but he said he can't do that. And she can't phsyically walk as far as the car anymore.
Seriously, when her brothers help her up, she's panting from lifting the weight. And the walk into the bathroom just about kills her. I think she's going to die, and no one will help me.

Hi there, I just read your post and my heart is just going out to you and your daughter. How is she now? Any changes since you posted? My son is 11, he's tall for his age, (5'9"), but is very overweight at 245lbs. I would really like to get into contact with you, it would be nice to talk with another parent about my son's weight, and the issues that come along with it. My email address is

God Bless you Caris I know that you must love your daughter with all your heart. I have recommended the Trim Kids book to a few of the parents that were concerned of how to handle there child's weight issue. It may be worth a shot to read it and read it with her. I know that you would love to have a miracle happen but sometimes those miracle need us to give it a little push. God Bless you and your daughter.

hi, if she can hardly walk, excercise and diet really will not help, i reccomend considering gastric bypass surgery, you can go to it has thousands of stories and info, hope this helps and God bless! tyler
