Hello. My daughter is 13 and weighs 175 lbs. She went to Weight Watchers nad in 2 weeks she lost 7.5 lbs. Then she slowly gained it back after abut a yr and a half, she realized this was getting her nowhere. She then weighed the same as she started (I suppose it was god that she hadn't gained any--I don't know). So, now this is about half a yesr later and she has already gained 13 lbs. And (she and i both have hypothyroidism and take a pill everyday for it) lately her school owrk has been going down, she has a lack of energy, she seems sort of distnat and far of, and She eats non-stop. I dont know what to do about. If anyone has gone through this or can help me, please do! Thank you.

Hey Bobo. Well you and your daughter can get involved in some activities. Get a membership at the gym and go together. And for the eating too much problem. What kind of foods do you keep in the house? If you have tons of healthy foods, your daughter will stay away from it. If not, its healthy so no worries. Also for dinner make a nice light meal. Dont go out and guy microwave things. "I dont have the time", is an often excuse, but I hope things work out for your daughter! Best of luck.
