From Debra, child's age 8

My child is Taylor and she will be 9 in September. Taylor is 170 lbs and very pretty. We have been struggling with the weight since she was about 4. Because she is so young, she doesnt quite understand the health problems that may come from this and the cruelty that will come later on. I continuosly tell her how beautiful she is so that she never gets lost in the weight. We have tried diets, cutting back and exercising. She doesnt eat a lot, she just likes to eat the foods that she likes. Any advice would be great! Debra
