I know what you're going through. My daughter is 10 and weighs 234 lbs. No matter what we do, nothing helps. I am desparete. I am so afraid for her life.
I keep on looking for help and praying like crazy,
hopefully something will work before it's too late.

Me and my husband are both thin. We also have a son who is 12 and is also thin. But my daughter Amelia is very obese. So many rings hang over her waist. People stare when my son brings her to the car because she is fatter than him. since her desk is stuck to her chair in school, she has a hard time getting out. When she wore a shirt with her stomach sticking out, a bulge came out and the shirt started ripping.She is fatter than me and my husband. my mother calles her a plump tomato, and my son and us a thin sring. She is now very thin because you need to install a door to your kitcthen and keep the keys on you. my daughter isstill a little fat, but alot thinner after we did this.

i am like that to ... i wont eat durin the day but at 12-2 in the morning is when i get really hungry... what i am doin now is tryin not to eat anything after 6 see if u can try to get your daughter to do that also... how old is your daughter? i used to weigh 219 and in 3 weeks i went down to 210-212 so just try to get her to eat more fruit and stuff durin the day..
* another thing- maybe she is angry/sad/depressed and eatin because of that... thats what i do and that is why i am so big so just try to keep it up BEST WISHES!!

I have an idea what you and your wife are going through. Taking her to a doctor would be a good start. My daughter and I have started a program suggested by her pediatrician called Trim Kids. She has been on it three weeks and lost 1 1/2 pounds. She is very proud and it makes her want to continue trying. Try and sit your daughter down and talk to her. And definitely make that appointment to the doctor and do some blood work to make sure she has no other health problems. Take care.

Well, it says 14 on the message. I don't think 340 pounds is healthy for anyone so I think age is irrelevant. She needs to see a doctor right away. I would be extremely concerened for her health. I cannot even imagine what you guys are going through.
