My daughter is 5'5" and weighs 224lbs. She doesn't seem to care that she is overweight. She overeats and eats fatty foods. She doesn't excersise at all. My wife and i have changed our eating habits and gently tried to encourage her to alter her lifestyle but to no ends. Have any other parents overcome this problem. Any help would be greatly appeciated.

yes! me and my wife can relate to your problem. for our daughter (see post right under yours) we did everything. change in eating, exersise, tv/computer habits. nothing worked. we incouraged her to try to do things in school but nothing worked. she brought food with her own money from her job, so we could do nothing to stop her. she is in college now and eats all the time. we are at our ropes end literaly.
