Just got back from the doctor with my son Lane. He's entering 8th grade next month and he wants to play sports so the need for the physical. Since last February he's increased in height by 2 inches, to 5'4". His weight is 301, so he's lost 6 pounds. The doctor says everything is good in terms of blood pressure,  cholesterol and blood work. Puberty has kicked in and the doctor tells me Lane should end up being 5'9" or 5'10".We started a vegetable garden in the backyard last spring and it's 99% Lane's project, which I encourage because it's good exercise for him. He got recognized for contributing vegetables from the garden to our local food bank. I know he's still a very big boy, size 52 jeans and size 3XL tee shirts but he's happy and has friends. I know he is very overweight but things are going well so I'm not inclined to rock the boat. He's looking forward to football practice starting next month.

Sounds like things are going well! That's still very big, I think Jeongguk was around 160 at 12 which is still obese. But it seems like there's been progress which is the most important thing.
