From Sami, child's age 16

Hello, my 16 year-old daughter, Jaime, has recently had me worried over her weight. She is incredibly beautiful, yet I'm worried for her health she is 5'11'' tall and weighs 210 pounds, which worries me. She doesn't look like she weighs that though. She doesn't have a 'gut' or stretchmarks yet. She has great muscle tone and is on the track, basketball, and volleyball team, yet her 33 inch waist is tormenting her and her doctors. I'm not sure how I can address this issue with her. Help would be wonderful.
