From Colette, child's age 11

Hi, my name is Colette. my daughter is 11 years old and just got weighed in at 236lbs when i talk to her about her weight she gets mad and cries and doesn't want to talk to me about it. I tell her that I am concerned and worried about her weight and know that it's hard at times but we really have to do something about it. I even showed her this web site and she said that she wasn't interested in it. I have video tapes and we are members of the ymca here in town, but swhe shows no interest. She even has a nutritionist but nothing seems to work. I am disabled and can't do a lot of the activities that regular parents can do with their child. PLEASE SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME ADVISE on what to do. I can take some critizim if needed.
