my daughter is overweight i try to help her eat healthy but its hard i think in my opinion everything we eat is bad. im 33 years old and she pretty much weighs what i do and shes only 10 so what do i do i feel bad for her and try to help but i am running out of ideas nothing seem to work anymore. I finally put her in sports so im hoping that may help some.

Have you talked to your daughter about her weight? It might be helpful to talk to her about her feelings. Is she stressed or bullied at school, sad or anxious? Let her know that you want to support her efforts to lose weight. You might want to allow her to go to the pre-teen bulletin board on this site where she can see that other kids her age have the same issues and get some ideas. This might be a good first step.
