From Danielle, child's age 13

My 13 year old daughter has been gaining a lot of weight this school year. She came into 7th grade at 5 foot 3 and 225 pounds and now she has gained an extreme amount more. Myself and my younger daughter (4'11 110) have been watching her. We weigh her every night and last night she was 325. We've gotten calls from the school about her size. She's been eating meals constantly. She makes her own meals (which might not be the best thing.) She eats about 5 eggo waffles a morning with her sister. She packs two lunches filled with fatty snacks around the house. She's having trouble walking and I've noticed on weekends she usually just sits on her bed the whole day on her phone and eating her sweets. I've discovered a stash of zebra cakes, honey buns and brownies under pillow. She's been taking the food in the cabinets and keeping them for herself. I feel like if she keeps eating more she won't have the friends she has. Her best friend is bigger than her. I've seen them touching each others bellies and my youngest daughter joins in. I hope she never gets a habit like this. My daughter told me her friend is only the 2nd fattest girl in the school which scares me to know that there's a kid who weighs more than her friend (425.)
