From shelly, child's age 13

my daughter is 13 years old and i very overweight. she is about 273 lbs. she is not even 5 feet tall. last week i took her to the doctors and he weighed her and she weighed 268 lbs. he put her on a diet and told me to weigh her every week or so but not more than that. when i weighed her yesterday she weighed 273 which means she gain 5 lbs. in a week... this makes me think she has not been following the diet but i am not sure how to confront her and help her stick to it. when i weighed her she said that it didn't matter if she gained weight because i was fat. which is not untrue (i am 5'5 390 lbs.) however i don't want my daughter to go through the things that i have to. i need to make her see this.
