Hello Everybody,I have one daughter who is thirteen years old. She is 5'1 and 131lbs. Although I know this isn't considered very overweight(she has to loose 8lbs to be in her healthy weight range), I know she doesn't feel comfertable about her weight. She never takes off her jacket unless she is wearing a baggy shirt underneath. Any tips to make her feel more comfetable would be greatly appretiated.

'Sup, OK, I am 11, and I like to help people so here are a few tips for your daughter:
1) Just buy her the clothes she wants to wear, if they are baggy, so be it.
2) Don't make her go on a diet. All you need to do is watch her food intake at home. Pack her lunch everyday, and make sure she doesn't bring money to school for snacks.
I hope this helps!!
