Hi everyone. My daughter Milly is having weight problems. She is 5'5 and 190 lbs according to the doctor that I took her to last year. She carries almost all her weight in her belly. She always has her hand on it and her back arched back like it is so heavy, like she is pregnate. I told her that I would not buy her any new clothes until she loses weight. I;m guessing she gained because she now wears her pants under her sagging belly with it peeking out under her shirt. I also bought her bikinis because I can't find one pieces to fit around her. I figured that a bikini would give her big belly ennough room. Is that ok? I never really noticed how big she was a couple of months ago, until i went into her room at night to turn of her light that she accidently left on, her shirt had rolled up in her sleep and the covers were off. She was on her side, and all of her belly fat was just hanging there. I can't even hug all the way around my baby girl anymore. She seems to like being big, all her friends are a little chubby too. I'm just afraid that she will miss out on normal things with all this additional weight. At my sisters wedding her father tried dancing with her and even he could not put his arms around her belly. It was sticking out so much that they could barely dance. What should I do?

It is possible she could be pregnant. 190 isn't that much weight. Just watch the growth of her stomach

190 pounds is not alot of weight at all. However, from the way you described it, her belly must be incredibly pronounced. Have you thought that maybe she is actually pregnant? It's not my place to judge, but it's near impossible for you not to be able to put your arms around her if she's only 190 pounds. (Unless you have really short arms that is...)

i also thnk if it sticks out so far she may not be able to ride things at amusment parks and such.

well tell her you love her but she should go on a diet.but you should buy her new clothes for school that is what i am doing. 190 isn't THAT big but you said she carries most in her belly,the way you describe her it seems like she carries at least 100+ pounds in her belly if it sticks out so far that she could barley dance. hope that helps!!
