I'm hoping to find other parents with overweight daughters who can relate to my situation. My daughter, Krista, keeps gaining more and more weight. She's now 425 lbs and still refuses to talk about it or do anything to help herself. She gets angry with me when I try to say anything about her weight and tells me to just leave her alone. She won't listen to anybody.

I have the same problem though son not daughter. I was too angry and strict when my son's weight first became a problem and I feel like I lost his trust. He gets very defensive now when I bring up weight at all. I've been trying to change what's available but he's old enough that he's starting to make a lot of his own decisions and he can buy his own pizza whenever he wants to.
