    Excersize.
    Eat Fruits/Vegetables.
    Enroll her in extracurricular activities- such as soccer, volleyball, ect.
    Make sure she doesn’t starve herself, eat healthy!

    Get active, smaller food portion and healthy food changes in her diet. No soda, no candy and no fast food for awhile.

    stop feeding her junk food, instead do not let her eat after 5pm, put her outside in the park where she can play lots of sports, or my personal favorite buy her an ipod and make her run 30 min a day. she should loose 5lbs a week with this diet. after two months she could loose 40lbs and weigh 135 and look decent, and actually impressive…but hey…many people don’t want to pay that price and would rather look disgusting(no offense). Hope it helps 😉

    Get her outside, encourage sports, teach her smart eating, every little bit helps. Especially sports. When i played sports, i could lose weight without giving up food. Try volleyball or softball. if she gets in sports at a young age it’ll be all the better later.

    Wow! I have a 12 year old who is too skinny, but also very active. He weighs about 85 pounds. I will answer later. Have to go out now.

    First off, what kind of example are you setting for your child? That’s really where it starts. Kids tend to emulate their parents. Or secondly, is your child eating more because there are other underlying problems emotionally or physiologically. Has the weight gain been over a short period of time or just life in general? All questions only you can answer. Focus on losing about 2-3 pounds a week. That is manageable weight loss. People who lose a lot more on a weekly basis tend to have more issues with keeping the weight off permanently.

    Eat three balanced meals a day. And definitely don’t skip breakfast. And not just sugar cereal and pop tarts. Oatmeal, fruit, and whole grain cereals without sugar are some of the best. Quaker Oats weight control oatmeal is filling and great tasting as well. Even frosted shredded wheat is better than most sugar cereals even though it has sugar, it also promotes good intenstinal movement.

    Sack lunches instead of the meals at school. No soda or at least limit the amount of soda (diet and regular). Pop should be the reward not the norm. Push the water. Too often kids drink pop and sugar flavored drinks because they are thirsty. cut out the caffeine! Kids have enough energy and a high metabolic rate without needing caffeine. All the caffeine does for them is cause them to want more, shut down their normal adrenal gland functions, and more.

    Make nutritious suppers. I don’t agree with no meals after 5 pm or anything to eat after that time especially if exercizing in the evenings. But definitely cut down on any food intake after 8 pm. Healthy snacks. Our counter always has apples, bananas, and oranges sitting on it in a basket. Are they more expensive than other snacks. Sure, but they are also more nutritious and filling. You might satisfy the sugar rush with a candy bar, but it will disappear more quickly as well.

    Exercise. At least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise 4-5 days a week. Some of it can be fun for the kids, but some of it will have to be a little work. I make my son do odd jobs with me on my day off. Sometimes that includes mowing, other times he helps me clean up around yards picking up the sticks, etc. But he keeps moving and that’s the key. His other chores around the house include watering the garden, taking clothes off the line and folding them, and more. Through everything he’s constantly on the move and staying active. I see too many kids who all they know is Computer games, playstation, and TV. A lady at the store the other day was buying a Wii for her overweight daughter to exercise with. ?????? Whatever happened to just going outside, moving around, and enjoying the world? Better for you, and less expensive as well. I also have my son take the dog outside and play with her in the yard for 20-30 minutes a day. If you don’t have a pet, how about an older neighbor who might need their dog walked?

    One shouldn’t be embarrassed about their body. We all have our particular body styles, genetics, etc. that we have to live with. But obviously your child still has time to make choices that will ultimately impact the rest of their life. You just need to be there to support them in each and every way you can.

    whoa, i bet she feels terrible about herself at that weight (no offence meant) :S
    Anyway, the best thing to do would be to restrict her eating to just 3 normal (for an 11 year old) sized meals a day, with a balanced diet. no matter how much she complains, convince her to stick to it. Also, regular exercise is good, play football, or go running, or swimming, or even go walk around a park (walking is the best form of exercise in large amounts! 🙂 ), just make sure that she is doing something physical. Start off small, and increase the amount of exercise as she begins to lose weight. If you follow this, then she’ll definately lose all the extra weight and gain confidence in herself 🙂

    Get your entire family to eat healthy. Say that you have been slacking and you want some support from everybody else.

    Start off in increments:

    instead of chips or candy, by cereal

    instead of pop, by juice or flavored water

    instead of mashed potatoes, have a salad or fresh veggies

    instead of pizza from domino’s, make a healthier pizza together

    instead of buying her lunch at school, pack everyone a lunch saying that you are trying to save money and that you just read an article about how healthy school food really is

    instead of popcorn or chips when you watch a movie, buy everyone a bottle water and bring a pack of gum for everyone

    instead of watching tv all day: go outside for half an hour. make it mandatory

    I have some info for you, if you want it. I did Hip Hop Abs with
    my hubby last year and lost 40 pounds. It was really fun, but hard. I started out on the couch as I could not stand up, and by the time I was done, I had sawn the legs of a small metal stool, so I could stand up ~ but rest on the stool and still continue exercising. Sounds funny – but it worked for me. I am 4’3″ and at that time weighed around 309 and got down to 269 ~ but now I am back up again, me thinks too much coffee and cake lol !! (Everyone has a Birthday ~ Yell)
    Oh well…
    Point being its a yo yo thing and it seems like it’s never going to end, until I found out about the Ultimate Body Wrap, which is a Cosmetic Application, that Tightens, Tones and Firms your skin. After I did my first wrap I lost 11.5 ” (inches) of loose flab, … I changed my fluff to buff …lol any way if you are interested, e-mail me at: [email protected] ok ? looking forward to
    being able to help you !!
    Here is how it works: Cosmetic Body Applicator It is a Natural, Herbal, Tans-dermal Cosmetic Application, similar to a patch, in that you apply it to your skin, and the product embedded on it is transferred to your skin layer to naturally stimulate the Detoxifying action in our “engorged” fat cells; causing them to shrink in as little
    as 45 minutes. The size of the Applicator is: 2 feet X 1 foot . It is used to make your skin more youthful and vibrant. It’s not pharmacuetical its ~ neutraceutical ~ in that it is designed to give the body – what it needs to stay healthy and youthful; Naturally, with no harmful side effects. The Ingredients in the gel/lotion stimulate new skin cell growth but they also Naturally stimulates the processes of Detoxification and Lipolosis or Adipose of fat on a cellular level ~ causing the fat cells to shrink and the skin to Tighten, Tone, and Firm in as little as 45 minutes ~ like it literally shrinks trouble spots away in 45 minutes”

    go to the web site, and become a Loyal Customer, you will get the product for the wholesale cost that way, and all you need to do is agree to purchase product for 3 months in a row, just 1 thing ~ weither it be $20 or $120 each month for 3 months ~ it worked for me, It works on the outside of the body to scultp your shape, it is natural and safe, there are videos there to watch also. Check it out, even see what the ingredients are and tell your doctor, to see if it is ok for your Daughter.

    I am 14 years old and weighed 140 lbs. My mom said i needed to lose weight and so all i did was watched my empty calories and just plain calories and also i was very active in fact i ran a mile every other day and lost 2 lbs every week. I have lost 12 lbs so far and am every unmoody and am always in a happy mood so just being active and eating very good foods ( be very varied and keep lots of fruit around the house) I also drank a Liter of water everyday so you could buy her a very large water bottle and have her drink at least one bottle of that per day.

    Like many other natural products that promise healthier returns for a low investment, Acai Berry has experienced its share of both good and bad reviews, but the scientific background of Acai Berry doesn’t change in spite of these polarized reviews. The simple scientific fact remains that Acai Berry’s natural composition does service the body in positive ways including internal cleansing properties, renewed energy, and contributions to a weight management system.

    Much like their distant cousins such as grapes, Acai Berry does possess high properties of antioxidants that remove free radicals in the body. Another way to look at these terms are to imagine antioxidants as an air and substance filter that acts much like the filters on your home or apartment’s central air system. Free radicals are those substances floating through the air that get trapped and, once the filter is replaced, are eliminated from where you live. Naturally, the process will start again; Acai Berry serving as a filter as new pollutants enter your body. Grapes, especially the Concord variety, have been known to possess this property; but Acai Berry offers much more in terms of strength.
