dancing and singing for your daughter and her friend when she is over is fun and can really burn calories.we have brought a wii receantly and akll the kids love playing with it and often fight whoes go it is.rollar blading,walks,hikesetc is also good along with bikeriding.just keep trying various options till you find the one that apeals to your daughter.skipping anbd hula hoop is also fun and popular with girls her age.the thing is to try and not signal her out and do something for the whole family.slowly changing the eating habits in little steps can help.giving skimmed or semi skimmed milk on cereal,crystal sweetner insteed of sugar.whole white pasta and bread and rice instead of white.low fat cream instead of cream sauce better still a tomatoe sauce.mustard instead of butter or tomatoe ketchup.low fat yogurt and cheese.you donīt even have to tell them you are doing it. good luck.keep up all the good work you aere doing at the moment.donīt forget to promote fruit and veg and if they donīt like them,sneak them in.
My family and I seriously started this lifestyle journey at the beginning of Feb. Ive learned how true it is that your kids will imitate what you do..I am desperate to get healthy and fit along with my family. My youngest who is 3 enjoys exercise, My son who is 11 plays outside and is active with sports and riding his bike everyday but my oldest who is 12 cannot stand exercise. Recently I started inviting her friend to come along and I don't hear her complaining too much. My oldest is the one who is overweight and I feel so guilty for doing this to her. Ive applied to get her into a kids weight management program which is about 50 min away from my house. There is nothing else around here for kids to do so I have been going out for walks with the kids when the weather is warm.
