My neice is almost 15 years old. When my neice was about 12 I had mentioned to my sister that my neice had put on quite a bit of weight and it was not baby fat. I said she might want to maybe talk about portion sizes because my neice would eat and eat and her parents would never say anything. They also eat a lot of junk food and drink tons of soda.
My sister said she noticed but did not want to give my neice a complex or eating disorder.
A year after that my neice had told me that her doctor told her she was obese and she seemed heart broken. She then stated she was going to work out every day and her mom was going to do it with her,
Fast forward to now and my neice lost a little of the weight but is still a little pudgy. Here is my issue, my neice does not wear properly fitting clothes. All the things she wears are way too tight and so she ends up looking bigger.
Should I say something to my sister? I cannot afford to buy my neice new clothes or that would be an option. I am hesitant because last time I said something I do think my sister was a little offended but I worry about my neices health.
