Does anyone know of any boarding schools that specialize in healthy living and weight loss? My daughter weights 245 pounds and I'm considering sending her to one. I'd like your opinion on whether you think this is a good idea. Thanks.

If you are concerned about her weight that much why don't you try exersising with her or something? Personally if my parents sent me to a camp or school like that I would be soooo embaressed because I would have to tell my friends where I was going and I would be really mad at my parents for sending me somewhere. But it is your decsion...why don't you ask your daughter if she would want to go somewhere like that?

i dont know of such a place but i dont think its a bad idea. i would consider anything to help my daughter who is overweight i am waiting to see a dietician and if this doesnt help i am going to send my daughter to weight loss camp in the summer holidays even though some people say they are not the answer but like i said ill try anything so she is healthy and doesnt endure a life time of ill health like her nan who is overweight and already has diabities and has had two heart attacks i wish you luck in any dissicion you make
