From Chloe, child's age 14

Hi. My daughter's 14 now and i'm getting worried about her weight. She's always been a little chubby as she eats a lot and never exercises (she absolutely refuses) but she's been okay until recently. The thing is i sent her to a summer camp last year and she must have been eating loads while she was there because when she came back she must have gained at least 20 pounds. I was very shocked as you can imagine. She seems to have gained most around her waist and bottom which isn't good for a young girl. Shes only 5'3 and i don't know her weight but i'd guess about 160 pounds. Anyway she wore this short top one day and i made some comment about how she looked "a bit big for it" and we had a huge row which ended in her storming off. She's been gaining weight ever since the summer and i don't know what to do. I don't want her to be ill but she wont talk to me about it. sorry about the length.
