From Jackie, child's age 15

Hey all, i am writing this here because i don't know what to do with my daughter. Last year she was active, slim and went played sports. But that all changed, she started gaining weight pretty fast a couple months ago. She goes to the Mcdonalds and buys a lot of candy and such now. Last week i saw here in her now too small bikini and i was shocked. My once slim girl was now really 'fat'. She also has stretchmarks on her belly. So i had a talk with her about her weight, but she just shrugs it off. She just says:"Yea i am a bit chubby, but who cares". I weighed here and she weighs 178 lbs. But after that talk she didn't ajust here eating habits and kept eating junk food, ignoring all my advice. I am happy she is confident with her body, as she has no trouble going out to swim in a bikini, but i really would like her to lose weight. Sorry for the long story but is there anyway i can cinvince my dauther to lose weight or is it the hormones?
