From Nikki, child's age 11
Our daughter is 5'7" and 230 pounds. She is VERY active in sports (currently in her 6th year of playing in 2 basketball leagues simultaneously, she has played 2 years of starting offensive & defensive line boys football and she pitches softball). She has been menstrating for almost 2 years now and wears a size 11 womans shoe - so she is a bigger girl- but I can't lie to myself or her anymore...she's extremely overweight too. A few times I've caught her sneaking food and found 3 candy wrappers in her room. I've yelled, threatened, offered to pay her for each pound she looses and even enrolled her in an overweight kids program. I just don't know what to do anymore. She agrees with me but she continues to just eat more and get heavier and heavier. She's such a pretty girl and last week for the first time a boy at school really said a mean thing to her. She gets straight A's; but her self esteem is diminishing. She will only wear large t-shirts and jeans to hide her "real shape". Even the team t-shirts she wears for sports she always requests a larger size. I don't want her to gain anymore weight and want her to loose - but she needs to motivate herself but in the meantime she puts on more weight! Any suggestions...
