To say something to her
Thenights45 · 16/08/2015 11:11
My 20 year old dd has lossed a lot of weight over the past six months. She used to be about 12 stone and now she looks like she is about 7 stone. I'm concerned about the short amount of time in which she has loss this amount of weight and the fact she now looks like she is a bit underweight. She is about 5'3

Ok well in the last 4 weeks I've lost 11lbs so if I kept that going over for 6 months I could lose over 4.5 stone. I'm losing weight healthily so it may not be as drastic as you think.
Could your other daughter maybe have a chat with her? I know it's not ideal but if something is going on she may open up to her sister more than her mum? She coul approach it under the guise of wanting to drop a few pounds herself?
Sorry if that's terrible advice, I'm not really sure the best way to handle it but can understand your concern.

You definitely need to speak to her & ask what diet she is following. If not, how will you know if it is the beginning of anorexia or not? AN is easier to treat the sooner it's caught. If she's just been eating better & now feels she wants to stay the same weight, then great. If not, a GP referral to a dietician might be useful.
