Sd 11 is overweight and very lazy. She is 5 inches shorter than me and out weighs me by 20lbs. I try to encourage walks and bike rides but she'll cry she's tired. When sd plays soccer she won't run...anyway no good! The reason I bring this up is she came in this morning wanting icecream. I told her no and she got an attitude..no big deal. Her portions of everything are more than dh or myself eat. I was always raised to eat til I was full but with her never wanting to exercise those 3 pork chops are sitting there. She also gets upset I won't allow seconds on desserts. I know kids at school called her fat last year and she thinks it's funny that she's bigger than anyone in middle school. I don't want to be mean but she's big and dhs family all struggle with weight. He also had portion control problems and was 60lbs overweight before I met him. Should I limit seconds? Basically any ideas where I don't have to tell her she's overweight and needs to lose some?
