I agree it does not sound as if your daughter is seriously overweight. I myself am 5'4" and I weigh 125 and am told by my doctor I am normal weight. If she eats healthy and gets and remains active the look will adjust to her growing ( yes still growing) body.

Woah,relax,your daughter doesnt sound seriously overweight.Sheesh,when I was 12 I reached 180 lbs and my parents couldnt care less.Will your daughter grow out of it?Well,that depends.If she is leading a healthy lifestyle,beeing active,and eats healthy,she probably will.But if she eats too much junkfood and is inactive,she will just grow bigger.FACT:girls are mostly done growing at 12,so she will probably stay the same height,but she is still young and losing weight is much easier at that age.Good luck and dont worry,she will be fine

At 12, she's most likely not done growing, and at her height and 120 she's not that overweight, so don't so much focus on having her lose weight as having her live a healthy lifestyle. If she mantains her weight until she gets taller, she'll grow into it, and it's probably better to just be patient and let her grow out of it, than to have her lose weight at this age. Not saying you should let her carry on an unhealthy lifestyle if she eats lots of junk or doesn't get exercise, but focus on HEALTH rather than WEIGHT, have her eat a balance diet and get lots of exercise, and don't worry too much about her weight now. If she mantains her weight, she'll most likely grow into it.
