How tall is she? IS she fit or unfit? Does she look overweight.
Best bet: take her to a dietician who can determine if she''s the coorect weight for her height &  age &  discuss a healthy diet with her. Often if teens think they''re overweight, they respoirt to bad eating habits or worse, eating disorders. Show your daughter you take her fears and insecurities seriously without agreeing with her.

Also: what is YOUR relationship with your food/weight? Kids/teens reflect what they see in the home so make sure you never talk bad about your own weight.

My daughter weight 59 and she is 13, she is not over weight but have a big bone structure, you can not go by weight alone, you need to calculate weight and length to determine if a person is overweight, I suggest to search for BMI (body mass index) on the web, I am sure it will put your mind at ease.
