My 16 year old daughter is overweight by at 30 lbs and I've had her to her doctor, blood work and "nothing is wrong". She joined a gym and changed her eating habits for one month and gained weight ? She said its not working and quit. She is an honor student and 3rd year in marching band. Talented and beautiful. Her boyfriend of course loves her just as she is but I'm more concerned about her health and diabetes ! Most of the weight is in her stomach and she has terrible stretch marks as you low that will never go away. We have tried a million diets. Everyone says she has to exercise. She just won't because 1) it didn't work before and 2) she's not active that way and never really has time with school, band, church, youth group, and sleep? I can't talk to her anymore she starts to cry and says what do you want me to do Mom. Any suggestions. Oh by the way we are as broke as could be so $ is a huge issue as well.
