It's so sad to see kids who are so fat!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I was out today and saw a fat woman and the three kids who were with her were just so fat. The 12 year old looking boy looked like he was pushing 200, The 7 or 8 year old girl looked like she was about 100. She didn't even look like she could run.  There was another little girl that was huge too. It's just so sad to see kids that big! And I know people will try to say oh maybe its health problems or osmething but no. They were eating pizza. This is the worlds problem... instead of saying hey stop feeding your kid crap make them eat healthy we coddle the fat kids and they stay fat. I care about my daughter being healthy. Of course I let her have junk and fun stuff but I always make her eat healthy and exercise and she plays sports. How could people let their kids get so fat? They don't start out that way and the parents control what they eat.

I was at the McDonald's playplace the other day with my friend and our kids. This woman came in with her two boys - all very overweight. One of the boys, who looked about 10, ate 3 burgers, 2 large fries and a big soda. (I assume soda, he had a fountain drink. I doubt it was water). When we were leaving they had gone back up to the counter for ice cream.

I felt so bad for those kids. Yeah, my kids eat there once in awhile. But i would never give them that much crap in one sitting. I can't imagine setting my kids up for a lifetime of health problems like that.

Look at the parents.  Nine times out of ten, they are obese themselves.  I've noticed an awful lot of Hispanic children very chubby, very early.  I think the basic diet is terrible.  Couple that with eating fast-food constantly and you've got kids with weight problems by the time they are six,

I saw that a lot where we moved from. Not so much here. I've noticed it is a sociological problem.

Genetics CAN affect weight... but I'm fat, and I'm doing a LOT different than my folks.   We still eat pizza and fun stuff once in a while, but I don't have a whole pantry of crap.   We eat our veggies as much as I can pour into their throats... and we even monitor that we don't eat too many fruits...

However, my son is gaining a little, and I have been secretly cutting back his portions when I can.   They would eat themselves fat if I let them.

Well I agree with you. It IS sad. The common response is "let's check their thyroid" not "let's monitor their daily diet and exercise." I agree that a bigger kid needs to make sure their levels are balanced just in case that is contributing to the less active metabolism but when you get down to the nitty gritty...it is a good diet and exercise that is absolutely important.

Are your kids healthy? Yes? Then that is all you need to concern yourself with.

And it becomes or has become a national problem... an epidemic.
