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 Mark, child's age 16

About a month ago, I wrote on this board about 2 of my (now) 4 sons. This time it is about Adrian, my oldest. He is 16, 5'9 and 265 pounds. At the time of my last posting, Adrian was about 248-250 pounds. So this is about a 15 pound gain in a month. He likes to eat, and eats a lot throught the day (mostly junk). His weight has gone up sharply in the past months but this months gain is ridiculous. He wears a size 46 pants and he is in a bit of denial about his weight. He says that people keep teasing him because he is fat, but has no desire to lose. Please give advice, and thank you.
