Brianna is 11 and she is 140 pounds 4'11. I cook healthy meals for her including lots of vegtables. Her thin sister Rachel (5'4 100 pounds) trys to set an example, and so do I. I am not overweight. I have found food conatiners in her room and she eats like crazy at her friend Helen's house because Helen is overweight too.When I confronted her about this she just says, I was hungry.Brianna also wants to model-how do i tell her she cant do this if she is not at a healthy weight? and how do I tell her she is fat-without being rude?

well maybe you could say like the whole family is trying to be in shape and talk to her that it would be great if she joined in, something along those lines and try to make it fun, and she is young it still might be baby fat so dont be too worried yet.

Your daughter could possibly be a plus-size model.

Sometimes kids need to learn on their own. I remember when I was younger my mother always tried to make me diet. It failed. I cheated. But then I got to a point where I hated the way I felt so I lost weight for myself. Maybe its how you need to handle the situation with your daughter.
