Question: She looks like a little porker now. Her face is still pretty but her body is just a mess. I am ashamed to be seen in public with her now. She really needs to drop the pounds if she wants to stay under our roof. How do we tell her the truth without hurting her feelings? I hate having a porker in my family.

Those are the thoughts of bad people. Accept her as she is. How would you like it if your mother told you to get plastic surgery because your face is starting to get ugly. Shame on you. If you REALLY want her to lose weight, though, tell her gently. Suggest it but say it gently as a SUGGESTION, not a command. Tell her you love her the way she is and you don't care and it's just a suggestion. Maybe you should get fat yourself and see what it's like.

This sooo happened to me too. I gained 20 pounds this year... I started to binge all the time and was depressed because of it. I stopped exercising and just ate so much. I've been able to get myself out of my depression by starting to eat healthy again and exercise (fancy that). I don't know how I did it. Today I was working out and stopped halfway because I was so motivated. But then I thought how much I really wanted to get my old body back, went downstairs and finished my cardio. Basically... eat healthy and drink lots of water. Calories actually do count. Go for at least a 20 minute walk to get started with exercise. I just bought the fluidity bar today. I am a dancer and this hopefully will get me back into shape and looking amazing. I've heard it works well and it sure looks like it does. I'm starting to take my dance classes again now that I am feeling better. Have you ever tried ballet? Ballroom dancing? They're great. So much fun and it's a beautiful thing. I'm a swimmer, and that makes me feel great. I haven't swam since swim season which is partially why I'm losing my good shape. I've also heard that mountain biking makes you feel good. I know regular biking along the canal path/road makes me feel good. I hope you are able to feel better soon. Feel free to message me at any time. I'm also in my teens and if you need a support buddy I'm here for you :)

Stop buying so much **** junk food and keeping it in the house. Be more active as a family at weekends, go tennis or swimming or whatever. Casually "suggest" she tries new food, but you don't have to deliberately point out that it's healthy. Dont drive her too and from school, make her walk. If she still insists on buying junk food with her own money and taking the bus everywhere, tell her a story about yourself (even if it's not true) and say you used to be fat and you were made fun of and you dont want that to happen to her, so you two and going to start losing weight. You have to do it with her, you can't expect her to do something you wouldn't.

Uhm. I hope you're a troll and you don't seriously mean that. Just because she's gained weight you don't want her in your house anymore? What kind of f'ed up world are we living in? Maybe if you exercise with her, it will motivate her. Go to a gym or go running.. Jeesh if I knew you in real life I'd probably slap you silly... Smh..

You're sick in the head! Love her how she is shes your daughter for fvcks sake. Seriously man, you're horrible. Dont fvcking tell her anything, it'll upset her. What are YOU feeding her. You probably cant cook so all you make for her is cheeseburgers and fizzy drink. You're her mother! If shes getting overweight, you need to think about what you're doing and what you're cookingg -kmt -_-

Buy healthy foods and encourage her to exercise. ( A real parent wouldn't be so mean and I read your Q&A's most are about porn and gay people.) I smell a troll.

Julyan Originally Answered: Daughter losing weight: Any creative ideas and/or recipes on what to feed my VERY fussy 19 month old daughter?
What about stuffing pasta (which you said she likes) with other stuff? Make ravioli and stuff it with stuff you'd like for her to eat but she won't. Also, for the mac and cheese, I wouldn't worry about finding something you can make in 15 minutes, find a good recipe, it'll probably take a while because really good mac and cheese is baked, make a whole bunch of it and freeze it, then you can warm it up in less than 15 minutes whenever you need to. My daughter loves cheese too, so if there's something she won't eat, we'll try melting a little cheese on it, this works for me maybe 60% of the time. I've also find that it's easier to get her to eat if we are eating whatever it is she is eating. She loves rice as well, and we were having pork ribs the other night. She won't usually eat meat either, so I made her some veggie fried rice. She wouldn't touch her rice! And she loved the ribs! I would maybe just freeze a bunch of meals that you know she likes, and let her eat some of whatever you are eating, and use the frozen stuff as a back up. I also find that ketchup helps with things she won't eat. I'd offer some recipes, but I just kinda throw things together as I cook. I hope I helped at least a little.
