• How can my morbidly obese six year old daughter lose weight? UPDATED?

    Best answer: Quit the unhealthy foods. I know you need to set an example, but it can be hard when you're a busy person to find time to only eat healthy.

    Best answer: Quit the unhealthy foods. I know you need to set an example, but it can be hard when you're a busy person to find time to only eat healthy. I went thru a point when i had so much to do that i ended up eating top ramen, fast food, and bags of chips as my only diet for a long time. You need to make sure that if she eats fast food, she eats only healthy fast food. veggie burgers, sweet potato fries instead of regular fries, burritos instead of fried tacos, etc. Cut out soda as well, if it's hard, switch to diet but don't let her get hooked on to it.
    Its awful how you have to exercise to be fit, but be fit to exercise. it's a vicious cycle.

    Have her eats fruits and veggies a lot because many have "negative calories" where digesting them actually burns more calories than the calories consumed when eating it. If you need a quick meal, order a salad from the mcdonalds kid's menu. Do some research on healthier fast food options. vegan/vegetarian foods help as well. Cut out visits with her aunt, and instead try to keep her with a different relative, a day care, a camp maybe?
    Keep her entertained and distracted from food, it'll help.

    also keep in mind that after she loses a lot of weight, the excess skin will make her look awful and lower her self esteem. It'll only get worse the longer it takes to begin getting healthy.

    It made me very sad to read how she feels sad to not get clothes with the characters on them. my little sister was a quick bloomer and all the bras were boring and bland, she'd feel "older" because it was all adult clothes. Despite anyones size, they are still children.

    Also, don't worry about the doctor. My mom was the most abusive person and she starved us for a couple years due to a mental illness. CPS was called but we still were stuck with her. I doubt that she'll be taken away for this.

    Hope this helps, i feel for you :)

    I m a female, 17, 5 5, weighing 170 and my BMI is in the 30 s I think? I m not sure. When I go to the doctor they say everything is fine I have no medical issues. I exercise for 1hr in my gym class at school, but I don t necessarily eat healthy although I try to. I cut out fast food and carbonated drinks, no alcohol or smoking. I mostly drink water & get as much protein as possible & fruit/veggies when I have the opportunity. Do u think I m healthy? If you see me in person I look like I weigh around 155

  • Is there a way that I can determine my height without visiting a doctor?

    My family suggests that I get a physical because it would include getting my height and weight measured. But I don't want to do that. Please don't tell me how important it is to get physicals, I already know. But how can I get my height measured? Please tell me! :)
