healthy habits for a lifetime

Congrats on being a great role model! It sounds like you are doing some good things with eating and exercising. Remember, your daughter will eventually do what you do, not necessarily what you say.
I agree, to NEVER give treats/desserts is not a good idea. You can give these occasionally so she doesn't feel restricted or punished. But remember to teach her how veggies and fruits and healthy foods make her strong; hopefully this will entrench that knowledge for life! Also we will have a website coming up for her age group under "FIT' so you both can learn/talk about this together.
If you are still worried about the numbers, you should certainly follow up with your doctor. He/she can go over it with you--don't be afraid to ask questions.
I really think you are doing a good job- keep up the great work!
