Let's see your overweight children!

Since schools are apparently telling us our kids are over or underweight and suggesting our larger children need to see drs let's post pictures of our "obese" or overweight children. By the way....my dr told me that labeling children as obese is BS. Sure some kids actually have weight issues but it extremely inaccurate to label anyone as obese before puberty.

My son is big. 94%.....always has been! He's got some chub sure but I definitely wouldn't consider him obese. He's a super healthy eater and extremely active. He is 8, 53in (4ft5) and 84lbs.

I think all the kids posted on here are seriously gorgeous kids.  Some do look a little overweight but that does not mean it will stay that way.  Just keep pushing healthy eating and excercise.

DD is a pudge. 

We are working on it. Its my fault. Bad eating habits, and living in phoenix, its too hot in the summer to get out anywhere. we are out and about again though, getting more active. we will be moving out of arizona before the next summer though, thankfully.

Funny right?!!


Quoting MixtlisMomme:

What the.. They look healthy to me.. And so freaking cute!




Quoting jakesmom323:

The one on the left is "obese" technical due to his stats. He's always been his height and lbs matching. He is 41 inches and 41 lbs at 3. He is skin and bones and no fat. The doctor laughed when he said he is in an elevated chart for obesity. He's just pure mass. Like lead. I know what you are talking about;)

I am not going to single anyone out, but some posted on here are clearly overweight.  My dd was overweight before the age of 12 as well.  Stressing good eating habits and excercise is the only reason she slimmed down when she hit the teen years.
