sunnylady303 Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 (edited) DD2 has had to be on steroids a huge amount in the last three years. It has really taken its toll on her weight. She is 6YO and 80 pounds. She has a serious sweet tooth. I need some concrete steps to wrap my head around how to help her. She is becoming self conscious about it so I want to emphasize healthy eating and activities without making her feel deprived or making her feel like it is about her weight at all. Complicating things, my other DD who will be 9 next month is slightly underweight and so I want to be aware of helping her achieve and maintain a healthy weight. I just need some advice so I can craft the best way to approach this. Just "trying to eat healthy" isn't really working for us. For that matter, DH and I need to lose weight too. But my focus is helping my DD be healthy. Her steroid use is going down so it should be possible for her to get healthier between times.
