From Karen, child's age 13
I have a 13 year old daughter. She is overweight at 165lbs. She started having a weights problem from around the age of 8. She's taken a lot of teasing about this and usually just laughs it off. Lately though it's not been so easy. She is desperate to lose weight now and I am doing everything I can to help her. What makes matters worse, is that I have no idea where to start. I have never had to diet, so it's hard for me to know what to do. Luckily this web sight has been a big help for both my daughter and myself. For the last two weeks we've worked together, planning what food to buy and eat. We've done well and have cut out all the chips, soda and candy. Also checking labels for fat content etc. Every evening we go out and execise for an hour. My daughter weighed herself after a week and found that she hadn't taken off any weight at all. Very dissappointing for her. All I could say was it will take time. It's very hard for my daughter to accept this as being a teenager, she wants results now! Does anyone know what weight loss she should expect after a few weeks?
