You can't let your daughter eat junk food. I didn't listen to my parents either. I now weigh 210 lbs. You have to get her to lose weight. Get her involved in a sport or something. She will feel terrible if she gains anymore weight.

you should clear out all of the junk food in your house and replace it with healthy foods and snacks. that way she'll have to eat healthier. to make an excuse for doing that, you can tell her that you want the family to make healthier choices in the food department so it won't seem like you're singling her out and forcing her to go on diet.

Just sit down with ur daughter and bluntly tell her but in a nice way. Would you rather have her be mad at you for a day or so but be healthy or not tell her and eventually leading to diabetes? I would go with the first one because your doing it for her best interest.
