From Linda, child's age 15

Hello my name is Linda and my daughter Brittany is 15 years old. I am very concerned about her. About a month ago i started to notice she wasn't wearing any of her old clothes she used to and when i asked why she just said she didn't like them anymore. And everytime i told her i wanted her to go weigh herself she said she was fine and she had been watching her weight so i let things go for a couple of weeks. Last week i decided to take her to the doctor. About a year ago she weighed 364 which is already massive and i found out she had gained 68 lbs and now weighed in at 432. i was very disturbed when i heard she had gained so much weight over the course of a year. Me and my husband have tried putting her on diets and exercise programs but she is too big to really exercise much and she says she eats because she likes being "fat" and gaining weight and having a huge stomach.I dont understand this at all and i really need someones help to get my daughter to change her mind and want to lose weight. Please someone help me do something. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
