From Debbie, child's age 13

I am having a bit of a problem. My daughter has been differn't lately. She dropped out of all her sports. Since she has dropped out she has gained 20 pounds since. I brought her to the doctor to check her height and weight and she is 5 foot 3 inches and 181 pounds. We went to the beach last week and she insisted on wearing a bikini and that's when it got worse, i took pictures of her in her bikini and showed her. She told me she likes being overweight. This week i demanded her to do 10 push ups and 20 situps in front of me and she barely made it through situps and she fell during pushups. I dont her to go through an unhealthy life as a teen. So i am going to keep buying her smaller sizes than she is to determine her to fit into those pants. am i being harsh or is this okay?
