My daughter is 15 years old and has always been a little on the chubby side. We visited the doctor in June and she weighed in at 192 lbs. We decided it was in her best interest to loose some weight, and she did. In December we went to the doctor again and she was at 150 lbs. I was so proud of her. But now lately, I've been noticing that she's slipping a bit. I can see that her stomach hangs over her jeans and it didn't before. I asked her if she's weighed herself lately and she said she has. She told me that she's at 166 lbs. She's put on 16 lbs in the past 3 months. I'm a bit concerned and I voiced my concern with her and she told me that she'll get back to the 'healthy stuff' but for now she wants to eat some 'normal' stuff again. I really don't see how this has anything to do with the weight gain. She can eat 'normal' stuff, but not all of the time. Should I be concerned that she's headed back to her first weight, or should I just sit back and let her handle this on her own? I think she knows what she's doing, but I'm not sure.

Tia that's pretty mean to your child! I mean would you want your child to go "Oh yea my mum's fat hangs three inches over her pants!!!" I hope you don't say that to your child...

How did she loose all the weight before?

She's old enough to know what's healthy and what's not, let things work out on their own...she should come around in time.
