Has anyone else had a child gain a lot of weight in college. Its an issue witth my duaghter. I just got done buying her a whole new wardrobe yet again before she goes back to college for her 2nd semester of her junior year. I know it is commom to gain weight in college, but over the last 2 1/2 years its been around 80 lbs (i would guess). She goes to college 7 hours from home but is always calling me upset about her weight and in tears sometimes. When she is home from college we walk together and i cook healthy food for her and she loses a little howver then she goes back to college and gains. I just feel like I am alone with this issue trying to help her and I have clue what to do.
