From Dee, child's age 13

We are new to the site and love it so far. If you count calories, for exericse, where do you get a complete scale? Our Dr. said 30 min. of vigorous exercise per day. My daughter has maintained for 2 months and really wants to lose before school starts. Calories in -- calories out seems to be a good starting point. We don't eat fast food a lot so counting grams of fat and starches for home-cooked food baffle me. If you have anticipated from this message, I have been called "underweight" all my life so identifying for me is a problem. My daughter wants to look like me, which I DO NOT recommend. Encouragement or advise would be more than welcome!!
