The hardest part of having an overweight child is the moment you realize you helped create the problem. Don't beat yourself up - no one wakes up and says "I think I will make my kid overweight today". Make small changes with "babysteps". Try not to make a big deal about a number on the scale. If you start moving everyday and make small changes in your diet - weight will start to come off and self esteem will soar. You have the power to turn it around and head for a healthy new life!
