From Lauren, child's age 16

My daughter has always been overweight, and I've never had the heart to sit her down at tell her that she's fat. I really should have. Within the past year, Ellen has gained a little over 115 pounds...going from 342 to 466. I didn't really notice it until she came down for school one day and her clothes didn't fit. Her favorite shirt was so tight it clung to every roll on her body and showed the bottom of her big belly, and her jeans wouldn't even button, so she zip tied them shut. Not only did her clothes not fit, she began to have trouble walking. The other day we were at a mini golf place and Ellen sat down and took about 10 minutes to catch her breath. I think I'm going to take her to the weight clinic soon, I'm worried about her. She gains weight everyday. I've started weighing her and tracking the amount of food she eats. I've even resorted to measuring her growing, fat body. It's scary how gigantic Ellen is. Please if you have any advice tell me!
