My 11 year old son has been trying to lose 10 lbs to be able to play grid-kids football and has had no luck. He is 5'1 and weighs 165. We have cut his daily calories to about 1400 - 1500 and he's been walking 1 1/2 to 2 miles daily on our treadmill at a speed of 3.0 and an incline of 3.0. He is drenched with sweat when done. I have him drinking about 64-80 ozs. of water daily. He has switched to whole grain breads only and sugar has been cut out (although sweets were never an issue), he is eating 4-6 small meals daily with his last meal consumed no later than 6:30 and our last exercise session at about 8:00 p.m. Yet in two weeks he hasn't lost one pound. We cannot figure out why and he is getting very discouraged. Why could this be? I want to offer him some encouragement and I keep telling him that his body will eventually let the weight go. But with only 10 more days til weigh-in, I feel he won't be able to accomplish this. Unfortunately that will only bring more discouragement. I personally have not put in nearly as much effort as him and have managed to drop 5 lbs. myself in the past two week. Please help. He needs to lose weight but without any kind of encouragement on the scale, I fear he will lose momentum. Thank you.
