weightloss for a 7 yo
how would you guys approach a little kid that needed to lose a bit of weight?
Gigi has always been a solidly built kid. she eats alot for a kid her age but she’s also very active. usually right before a growth spurt she’ll put on a little extra pudge then get taller and go back to her usual build.
this time though she’s not getting any taller, she’s just gaining weight. she’s got quite the belly goin’ now. since the move she has about 3 less months out of the year that she can go play outside and her sisters are the pickiest eaters i’ve ever come across so i’ve had to replace some of our healthy faves with less healthy options so they will eat. this is also about the age where several women in my family started to pack on the pounds and i would really like it if Gigi didnt have to go through school as the fat kid.
i dont want to put that in her head, that’s she’s fat and she needs to lose weight but if she could get back closer to the general build she was at the begining of this school year it would be better for her all around, esp considering the daily tears and fits over jeans that are too long for her.
