My daughter is now a senior in her high school, she is almost ready for college. However she is 360, and she has had no friends for the past three years. After school she sneaks cookies up to her room and eats. I feel as thoough she has missed out on the greatest years of her life. People make fun of the way her but moves as she walks and she has had no boyfriends. They call he big Melinda, and laugh at her. A boy once tried to ask her out for on of the dances, however it was only a joke and her feeling were very hurt. What should I do?

You can't force your Child to exersize or do anything they don't want to. You can limit time spent on the computer or watching TV. Try and find some cool music your kids like and ask them to do an aerobic workout with the music on. Try and eat healthy foods most of the time and don't eat fast food if you can avoid it. also try to talk to your child and make them aware that there are health risks associated with being over weight. Hope this helps!

Well besides weight loss, just wait till college.
People tend to be more mature and while she will still have to take some crap, I'm sure she will be able to find friends and have a pretty good life in college. High school life is bad for everyone, and is 100 times worse for fat people because people are so immature. College will be better.

just try to comfort her the best you can and maybe get her a reward if she loses some weight and keeps it off or find something physical she likes to do. Well i wish i could have been of more help but i wish you all the best.
