hi my daughter danielle is 5'4 and weiges around 155 now, she weiged 137 at her doctors appointment in november. she has gained alot of weight and i have made comments like your paints look tight but she doesnt want to take the comment she does as she pleases. she does 12-14 hours of cheerleading a week and 2-4 hours of dance, plus walking about a mile and a half a day. i dont understand why she is gaining so much weight so fast. can someone help me get her back to an average weight. email me at thanks

When you say something like htose pants look too tight your daughter may take it the wrong way, and she might feel like you are criticizing her. That would not help at all. Believe me I know first hand about what she may or may not be feeling when you say those things ot her. Try to be more positive because she is probably beating herself up about it any way (emotionally that is)

She might have a thyroid problem, if she has confronted you about her weight and says that she wants to lose weight, help her, but don't be like "you need to go on a diet".

maybe she is eating really fattening foods. fill ur house up with fruits and veggies!! NO JUNK FOOD!!! Some great snacks that i love are triscuts(YUMMY), wheat thins, and of course FRUIT and veggies!!! Good luck. some fun workout videos are walk away the pounds videos. they are soo fun!! u could also buy denise austin kickboxing workouts or other denise austin ones. GOOD LUCK!!! YOUR DAUGHTER WILL DO IT!!!!
