Hello, Molly :). If you're really trying to lose weight and you can't, I would talk to your parents about seeing a specialist. This happened to me too. If you want to talk more, just e-mail me at

The reason why you are gaining weight is because you are still young. At your age you are still growing and getting taller. As you get taller you will naturally slim out as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. At age 11 there is no need to worry about weight, all you need to focus on is eating healthy food and exercise.
