Hi, ok so my 11 year old daughter cries everyday about her weight and it's heart breaking. She's about 140 pounds and she wants to lose weight. When she gets naked she looks... chubby. But when she is wearing clothes she looks very slim. How can she lose weight? I only tease her sometimes but I don't mean to hurt her feelings. She doesn't like doing sports at school and it's just... very tiring. I want her to love the way she is but she won't accept it. How can I convince her to lose weight when she doesn't like exercising? Once she exercised for like 3 days and went on the scale. She came up to me and asked: "Mommy, how come I'm not losing any weight?" I'm like: "Because you're only burning the calories that you ate. It takes a lot of hard work to get to your goal." Then she started sobbing so much on my lap. She says she gets bullied in school and online. She also said that she wanted friends to play with at school but nobody would. Any suggestions or helpful tips that would help? Thanks!
