My daughter was that weight at 8 as well, she is now 5 feet and 150 pounds. She does not overeat. The rest of our family of 5 are thin. I would have her exercise daily (hard, I know - but google a bit and you'll find things she will enjoy) - has a pedometer that's cute and she can log in and get points and earn rewards, etc.

Use the BMI calculator for kids to see what weight range is appropriate for your child. If you find she is overweight using the calculator, then confirm this with her doctor. A good start would be to read the Parent's Information page, especially the section: Tips to help prevent children from overeating.
