Ok, here is the situation. My daughter weighs around 170, maybe a little more. She is 5'6. She has about six Cheerleading uniforms she needs to be able to wear through out the year. So far they are really tight, and I know she will be very hurt if she cannot cheer because she can't wear the cloths. She lives for this chearleading thing. I am a fittnes instuctor, and she has been working out with a trainer and doing cardio for over one year. Nothing is changing. Her Phys. told us that Topamax changes the way you think about food, and could possibly help along with cognative therapy. I see how this will disrupt her life and it's painful to hear the comments the kids and other people make about her gainging this weight. I know I can't shield her from that, and it will eventually get to her. She keeps saying she doesn't want to be fat. I wish it were me, because I know it's harder to watch it happen to your child. Thanks for any other adivice anyone wants to contribute. I really have been relying on all of you for support.
