I know nothing about you and your daughter, but I do know this:
Things will improve massively if you stop trying to get her to diet.
Yeah, I know I shouldn't interfere, but it's utterly, absolutely true.
You love your daughter, so do the hardest thing in the world for you to do: stop trying to make her life better. In fact, you should give it up for lent.
Tell her, in so many words, that she's perfect just the way she is, and that it's 100% okay to ignore it if you ever say anything otherwise.
That may be too much for you to handle right now, so just do the diet thing.
Say to her "next time i so much as mention weight, please instruct me to rack off", or whatever it is Ozzies say.
I promise, promise, promise this is the best, most productive, most relationship-building, most daughter's-weight reducing thing you can possibly do.
