My daughter is 10 1/2, 5' 1 1/2" and 134 lbs. Her BMI is in the 97th %ile. Blood tests have ruled out underlying causes. We are generally a nutritionally sound family - we drink only skim milk, we don't eat in front of the TV, etc. We indulge sometimes but for the most part stick to healthy foods. I'd like to know if your tween girls have had success in slimming down - either by losing weight or by maintaining weight while growing. TIA!

Never feel embarressed by your child obesity. They can do it
