I think she's an exceptional child, and no doubt highly motivated. I just wonder what their meals were actually composed of . . . and I wish someone would delve a little deeper into the father's repeated references to 'tough love'. As long as he cracks the whip, she'll prob'ly keep it off, but I'd be willing to bet she has some tough years ahead of her.

I'm thinking that by "tough lor" he means sticking to their guns and going through with the plan they set in motion for their daughter even though she probably resisted some. i know there are times i wish someone would show me some tough love about this whole low carb way of life. I'm working on it but there are times I just want those terrible white breads and sweets! I can't imagine being a child who needs to change a lifestyle! I commend the parents for not only changing their daughter's lifestyle but for doing it with her!

I am so sad for this girl. The success rate of diet and exercise for losing weight is only 5% (or less). In two years she's likely to have regained the weight plus more, and be feeling horrible because she will think she failed her parents.

So true. I think it's more like 2 or 3 percent. And, since it requires such a high level of self-deprivation, in other words constant HUNGER (hence the need for the "tough love"), it nearly always leads to a quick re-gain of all the weight "plus tax" sooner or later.

Permanent lifestyle changes that both 1) work AND 2) can be maintained for life are much more practical.

I think it is odd that they "took it into their own hands" after she tested negative for diabetes etc... they should have started before she entered kindergarten at 100 lbs. That young of a child - the parents control the food and some of the activity so it is great they finally stepped up and did something they should have already been doing.
