From Sharon, child's age 16

My daughter has been steadily gaining weight over the past year, despite being involved in sports and eating seemingly normal meals. I haven't said anything, but the other day we split up at the mall and reconvened an hour later. I sat on a bench and saw what I thought was a middle aged woman approaching me. I was shocked when I put my glasses on and recognized my own daughter---her hips and belly look enormous, there isn't any other way to put it.any hints?Sharon, Daytong
