I have a 14 yr old daughter who is obsese - over 200 lbs. I try to encourage healthy eating habits but she is insistant on eating whatever, whenever, and however she pleases. She complains of kids at school calling her 'loser'. She has tried to join athletics but is discriminated against because of her weight and not allowed to participate. I know that I need to engage in a 'tough' approach to loving her into a healthier lifestyle, but am unsure of how to accomplish that. I would like to lead her by good example, but unfortunately she is the only child left at home and my husband and I are unable to participate in physical activities due to disabilities. We also have a limited income and are unable to put her in activities that are costly. Please help, I am frustrated.
