hi everyone i have a huge problem my 16 year old daughter is getting really heavy and fat she just lays around the house all day and eats and keeps getting fatter and fatter. i cant talk to her about it anytime i tell her she is to fat she gets mad and she wont tell me how much she weighs i cant get her to stand on the scales. i just cant stand watching her get bigger and bigger by the week she cant even sit proper anymore and when she wears pants her whole stomach hangs out over the pants its like a load of jelly or blubber. its disgusting please help me and my fat daughter.

Does she go to school and have friends? If none of her classmates call her names, then what you say might be news to her. Be careful when saying things like that.

Hello i'm 16 and i just wanted to write and say i don't think you should be telling your child that she's fat because i mean it just discourages her more and i mean i would get mad if my mother told me that kinda stuff. You should try joining a club or workout place together to help her and get her more into working out and that would boost her self-esteem for her weight and herself. If you would like to reply please email me at
