My 14 year old daughter is overweight. . She has severe social anxiety (had since she was 4) so I don’t know if sports are a good idea

My 15 year old daughter is also overweight. She has expressed so much sadness over it. She and I decided to join weight watchers together. We also go to the gym together a couple times a week. Even loosing just a few pounds per week has given her a huge confidence boost. Another change I made was I keep the junk food out of the house. I keep fruit cut up in the fridge, nonfat greek yogurt, cut up veggies and we have switched to almond milk ( my daughter drank a gallon of milk a week) gold fish crackers instead of chips.
You could even possibly take your daughter to see a nutritionist and help her come up with an eating plan.
I know people might say we don't want our daughters to focus on their weight but we know loosing just a little will help their anxiety- and actually we are focusing on their health.

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
