I have very tall, very big boys. My 8 year old, who is slim, weighed in at the doctor's at 93 pounds a week ago!
He also wears a size NINE men's shoe. It's ridiculous. I have had it in my head all this time that once I have lost his weight I'll take a picture with him on my back, but the kid keeps growing! 10 months ago he was only 83 pounds. I don't know if I'll make it.
I like the Jingle ticker! You've lost 10 pounds already! That's an awesome start! My only claim is an inch off my waist.
But I'll take it! I think I've lost a pound or two, but the inch off my waist is kind of an "about time" thing.
ETA: I was just reading some old posts and in one of them I posted about this. My 8 year old weighed 71 pounds last November, 10 months ago. The child has got to stop growing.
