From Ariana, child's age 12

My daughter Grace has a problem. She is 12 years old in 250 pounds. She eats nonstop. The only problem is that she has no idea, and at this point she really needs to know. Most of her weight is stored in her belly making it extremely flabby and have “rolls”. Her condition has gotten much much worse recently she has major trouble walking and can’t see or touch her toes, she also needs help getting dressed, getting in bed and getting in the car. Because she doesn’t know she wears cloths that do not flatter he such as tank tops and bikinis. She never exersizes despite me constantly telling and asking her to. I lead by example and run 12 miles each day and work out at the gym. She doesn’t eat bad she just over eats. Her friends are really sweet and don’t say anything but It’s very obvious. When she lays down she holds her belly and when she walks/attempts to run she has to hold it very tight as to not fall. There is a fine line between being fat and having fat and we have definitely crossed that line. She is morbidly obese and in the highest BMI percentile. I just don’t know what to do. I’m afraid for her health and just want her to be happy. Are there any other parents with similar problems???!!!! I don’t know what to do please comment, I need someone who can relate to this and help me
