Many children, across the nation are struggling with weight issues. Sometimes, these problems can affect their lifestyles in very negative ways.
A girl named Breanna Bond weighed a staggering 200 pounds when she was just nine years old. However, a complete lifestyle change and the support from her parents helped her change her life.
According to Breanna, she had difficulty keeping up with her friends while they were playing. She also had difficulty breathing. As a result of her weight, she was bullied and was called names such as “fathead” or “fatty”. As you can imagine, this affected her deeply.
This prompted her parents to take action and help their daughter change her lifestyle completely.
Breanna has lost over 66 pounds, and looks better and healthier than ever.
In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Breanna and her parents talked about the difficulties they encountered while making this lifestyle change. Though they said it was tough, they hope to inspire others who are experiencing the same problems.
Breanna walked a several mile long trail every day. In addition to this, she joined the basketball team and the swimming team.
Her parents helped her through this change. They cooked all of her meals, and kept her fat intake below 20 grams a day.
And just like that, Breanna was healthier than ever.
In the interview, they encouraged other people struggling with weight issues to become active, and change their lives. Because having a healthy lifestyle is something that everybody can achieve with a little bit of motivation.
