My daughter’s weight explosion

My daughter went from a low normal Body Mass Index of 25th percentile to above the 95th percentile (considered clinically obese) in about one year from the age of 3 and a half to 4 and a half.  I spent more and more time and energy over the next eight and a half years trying to help her slim down, ultimately enrolling us both in a pediatric weight control program at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.  Our experience in that program convinced me there had to be something else going on with Juliana than just that she ate more calories than she burned.  And I was right.
