|Overweight children (0 replies)
I live in Spain and teach in a private school. It seems to be the done thing to feed up the boys until they are overweight. They are then considered to be "Fine boys"!
I think it also has something to do with status and shows that the famuily can afford for the boys to eat well. A sort of throwback to Franco's time.
There doesn't seem to be any consideration of the health issues!

|Occupational therapy study! (0 replies)
3 occupational therapy graduate students from Sacred Heart University are interested in having children participate in their research. The students are interested in exploring the experience of children who are or have been overweight. In particular we are interested in their friendships, as well as the types of play and activities they engage in with their friends. As occupational therapists obtain a better understanding of the impact of weight and fitness on friendship and peer activities they will be better able to increase participation in meaningful activities.
|am I the only one who feels this way?? (2 replies)
Hey, the name's Lily. Lately I've been really hating myself for being overweight. I'm only 15 and I weigh 154.5 pounds! I want to lose weight so badly, but I can't seem to lose anything. I hate myself for being overweight, and have even considered starving myself or taking laxitives to just lose some inches, but I know that it's wrong. If anyone has had this problem, or is suffering with it, can you please tell me what to do, I don't want to hate myself any longer!

|Diet Plans (1 replies)
I'm new to the site and was just wondering if it was going to include a diet plan. I'm at my wits end trying to come up with a plan that works for myself, my husband and my two children. Along with a place to chat it would be nice to have a place to go for meal plans. Anybody have any ideas???
