Laura, welcome, and I hope you feel comfort and assistance here. It's a great team to share and support! I think if you really start working on your own healthy eating journey, your daughter will follow eventually (depending how old she is) start drinking water all day... have fruits and veg... really make delicious fresh and healthy choices... it has an impact on those around you, but is taking care of you! All the best to you

I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him.

If you have ever ridden in an airplane, then you might have noticed the oxygen compartment located above every seat. The instructions that say "In case of an emergency, first secure your own oxygen mask and then if you have children with you then secure their masks." Take care of yourself first... then assist your children.
The first rule of helping someone else is to help yourself and then all you can hope for is to be an inspiration to her. If you create a better lifestyle for yourself then that will be a great example to your daughter.
Never give up, never quit, never surrender
You only fail when you stop trying
There is nothing to hold you back except you.
You can press forward long after you can’t. It’s a matter of wanting it bad enough.
The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.
