Yes he sounds overweight. He shouldn't have any rolls of fat.
How tall is he?
Does he do regular exercise/generally have an active lifestyle?

And in the other thread it was a dietician 'friend' who declared him healthy, she only booked the GP appointment about and hour ago and he has aged a year in that time too.....

What are you hoping to get from this thread that you didn't get yesterday? blush

My tall 11 year old is 37kg. He is completely ripped and doesn't have an ounce of fat on him.

I am 47, 5'3" and weigh 54kg.

Yes, he's obese.

That was supposed to be confused not blush. You must have known posters would recognise you from yesterday?

This is actually the third thread, second one tonight.

No there's another one in general health...I think this is the fourth in total.

OP, you've posted a lot of threads about this over the last few days. Im afraid the answer on all of them is that yes, unfortunately it does sound like your child is very over weight. I can understand you not wanting to accept this and hoping for a different answer but the only read advice anyone can give you is to discuss your concerns with an impartial medical professional (ie. Not your dietician friend who may just want to make you feel better). They can see your son, make a proper assessment and give you advice.

OP you look quite confused about how old you son is, how much he weights and how you became concerned about him.
I am reporting you and your four threads.
