From Ann, child's age 8

Hiya guys, As an obese single mum I am very concerned about my daughters weight. My job involves sitting at a computer all day and i usually eat a lot whilst doing my job. I'll go through 10 packets of potato chips a day and I'll have a pie for lunch maybe a snadwich as a snack and i mostly drink coca cola. Im really concerned as my daughter is 8 and weighs 111 lbs and she seems to be copying my eaating habits and going through potato chips, donuts, yogurts, ice cream and candy as fast as me. She has a ginormous gut like me and it hangs right over her pants. What should I do? I know its just a bit of puppy fat but I don't want her to end up 84lbs overweight like me!
