From Laura, child's age 7

I raise my seven year old daughter Lisa alone. She always has been overweight but I never knew how much she weighted because I always knew it was to much and I didn't want her to suffer by knowing her weight. I'm also overweight, in fact I'm obese, and weight a bit over 280 pounds. On Friday we went to the doctors office. He demanded that Lisa should be weighted. I was shocked at the outcome: Lisa already weights 152 pounds. Lisa was also shocked when the doctor said that she weights so much and wants her to loose weight. That evening she said to me that she thinks she is really fat and that she feels ashamed about it. She has a big flabby belly that hangs way down over her waistband. I'm now afraid that she will become obese just like me. What can I do?
