From Rachel, child's age 13

My child, Natalie, has always been big, but now she is way too big. A few years ago, in 2015, she weighed about 220, which wasn't bad. When the next school year ended all summer long she sat around eating constantly. She woke up and ate a box of frozen waffles and some bacon. She constantly ate Oreos or Twinkies in between breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. She made a few frozen pizzas for herself and her little sister for lunch, which wasn't bad because it was only cheese pizza. Every dinner when I got home from work we had pasta and she always went and had 3 or 4 bowls. In 2016 at her physical I couldn't believe it when the doctor told me she weighed 340 pounds because she wasn't eating as much at most fat people do. I made her lunches all this year. A few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a few beef sticks and couple zebra cakes. Yesterday, we went to get her school physical for 8th grade and we found out she was 435 pounds. We've decided to cut back on the waffles, all she has been doing was taking snacks into her room and sitting on her bed, which can barely hold her. I told her she can't gain so much anymore, what should I do?
