I have been worrying and thinking and worrying and thinking about my son and his weight this week. I have been reading all types
of health tidbits that can be done to improve his (and our family's) health that will bit by bit further our progress over time. He has lost
ten pounds this past three weeks and I am so proud of him and want to help every which way I can which I am sure the rest of
you do too with your kids/families. So, I have decided that I am going to do two things: cut out the fruit juice completely (he doesn't
drink tons of it, but it will help I am sure) and try to have at least a few gluten free and raw vegan meals...hopefully he will like them but I am not counting on it...at least not at first! We are already vegetarian (well he and my hubby do eat fish/chicken once in a while).
What sort of little things can you start in your preteen's diet/exercise this week? And just wondering does anyone know of a fitness site like MFP for kids? I think it would really help them if they could get encouragement from their peers...
