My sisters kid is visiting us - she is such a pretty little girl but she is really over weight.
I try and keep a bowl of fruit for them for when ever they feel peckish, but she soooooo over eats it is redicoulas. I don't know how to handle it - I do say things like "there is one for everyone" and "Sharing is caring" and all that nonsense but, she is stealing food behind my back and in between everything. She bribes my 5 yr old for her food & sweets. She has been to the doctor apparently since I last time suggested she might have a shortage or something medically "short". I don't think I should leave it but I also don't want to created a bigger issue when it is already a sensitvity. She looks so guilty when she eats - it's horrible. What can say or do to help her?
