Some of you will remember me posting from a hotel room whilst stranded in Cambodia for over 10 months.. I posted every day from when I started my weight loss journey..I lost just over 11 kilos in under 11 weeks, year on and am still at a healthy weight..I've only ever been overweight the once in my life and what started that was the medication I started taking for my newly discovered health issues.
At the time I was on this forum I mentioned many times that my youngest son who was with me also lost 10 kilos, he was only 8 years old and weigh 44 kilos..and looked amazing from the loss of weight.. we have since got back home in mid January and slowly he has been put on weight again, enough to start worrying me about his future.
He was born a big boy and is a big build, but he puts on weight so easily and it's much more difficult to control what he's eating as we are a big family and food is so easy available.
I have been reading a lot about metabolism and genetics as he older brother eats nearly double then him but still stays slim.
I will get him back to a good weight again but fear that this will be a life long problem for him because he has something wrong with him..
Is there any members on here that have had problems with weight gain from when they were children and it been a problem into their adult lives..if so I would like to hear how you have coped and what if any medical reasons that have played a part for weight gain.
Thanks for listening. 🙃
