What do you get when you google “overweight children”?

Not much.  Reputable sites suggest eating less and exercising more; cooking at home instead of eating out; don’t drink soda and limit juice; and make it a family affair.  What if you are doing all that and it doesn’t help?  See your child’s doctor, who can monitor his/her BMI over time and recommend a nutritionist or structured weight loss program.

I spent years trying to follow this advice to help my very overweight daughter slim down. When it didn’t work, I tried harder to follow it. Finally I went looking for something better, and found it. This blog is for kids and teens who want to achieve a healthy weight and for their parents who want to help them. Oh, and parents, you’ll probably lose a few pounds too.
