My son was told by his doctor at his last well-visit that he's 40 pounds overweight, which to us was ridiculous. I'd say he's more like 15-20 pounds- still not good, but not FORTY! He's 5' tall and the doctor said he should weigh 80 pounds, but all the research I've done said closer to 100.

But regardless of the number, he clearly is overweight. His diet isn't great, but it's not a steady diet of soda and chips, either, which is what the dr. seemed to think. And since his well-visit, he's working on eating more veggies and less breads (he loves his bagels and crackers).

He's also highly active, and goes to the gym for basketball and the cardio machines almost every day of the week. He plays basketball and football, rides his bike and scooter everywhere, and generally runs around all the time.

His dr. ridiculed my statement that he's genetically doomed with the strong family history toward obesity on my side of the family (I have relatives who top off over 300 pounds). The dr. said that he doesn't believe there's a genetic component to obesity. I think we may need to look at a different pediatrician.

Motocross. What kid doesn't like being about to race around on a motorcycle? It will truly amaze you what motocross can do for you. Many wives have had to bite their tongues about racing when the hubbies' doctors' call and let the wives now how healthy their hubbies are now. LOL

Nether of my daughters are overweight by any means they are both very thin. Yet anything I say to them no matter how positive is never perceived that way by them. My 14 year old is 5'4 and about 107, she has great muscle tone and is very involved in dancing. She recently started this kick of buying a bag of munchies (similar to chex mix). She sits down and eats the entire bag, oy vay. Anything I say turns into "you never say anything to my sister", "you think I'm fat". Geesh! I've tried explaining to her that no matter how thin she is eating the entire bag is not good for her heart and that as she gets older her metabolism could change etc. Thats it's not a good habit to get into. She won't listen she eats the damn whole bag and then does 200 situps.

i was appalled years ago, when I went into a junior hisgh school,and saw 10 yo girls who outweighed me easily,at a lesser height than I. I was over by 10 lbs at that point, or more. My stepdaughter,on her own, lost weight to have a prom dress, and keeps dropping it. I am so very proud of her.
