I know it's hard, but even though I'm technically at a healhty weight according to my BMI and my doctors, I'm still insulted about my weight, because I'm not stick skinny. Just let her know that you support her and love her, and tell her to ignore anyone who says she's anything but beautiful. Preteen and teen years are the hardest in anyone's life, but with support they can be survived. Just stay strong, both of you...

Thnaks for the advice!I guess she may grow into it, but she is sometimes so depressed because friends call her fat and ugly, and i feel bad about that

If she's active and eats a balanced diet, then it's most likely that she may grow into it. By the way you described her, it seems she's not so overweight, but at her age it's likely she'll gain a bit of weight. Just makes sure she stays active and eats right and let her know you love her.
