Get her to be more active- play with her if necessary. Like swim, play running games or make up obstical course type games- that helped my younger cousin lose weight. And be careful of what she eats but don' t like not let her eat at all because that won' t help her lose weight.

But try do this very discreetly- she' s old enough to let her weight affect her mentally.

My 10 year old has the same problem and does not eat fried food. She was a sickly baby and the weight seems to have stayed on after the medication stopped. She has been tested for thyroid, insulan, etc.
