From Elizabeth, child's age 5

My little girl is five and already weights 63 pounds. She gained so much weight during the holidays. I don't know what to do anymore. She gets bigger and bigger. Just like I do. I am a compulsive overeater and she just loves to eat with me. She can eat as much as a grown up. During christmas she ate nonstop and I let her. All her clothes are very tight now and I already bought her some new ones. She needs clothes for an eight/nine year old child. It breaks my heart to see my little girl being so heavy. She has such a large belly and a double chin. Being heavy doesn't bother her at all - but maybe she is too young to really understand it. She is sometimes teased at school but it doesn't bother her. When I point out to her that she has a round belly she just says: Like you! and smiles at me! Please help me and my daughter.
