XxbellaxX Love you it’s mostly the mother’s fault. Why didn’t she stop it sooner rather that like at age 11. It’s much harder to lose weight at that age now. Instead of the stupid mom restricting her to eat a lot of junk and to eat healthy, she waited and she decided to do it at 11. It’s BS.
Wow that sucks her mom needs to teach her daughter better eating habits cut back on junk food and be more active it's very hard to break bad lifestyle I know I was almost 300 pounds 1 year ago and now I have 69 pounds gone I've cut back on junk food and fast food I drink less soda and drink more water I exercise in my home and outside I go for long walks this young girl can lose the Weight and mom should encourage her daughter to lose the Weight it's not going to happen over night but it will happen just be more active and cut bad food
Well she pretty tho. Anyway, y’all kids THE BUS SHAKES WHETHER SHE ON THE BUS OR NAH!!!!!!!!!!! DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I like her hair btw...I’m 11 almost 12 and I think I’m a little fat, I’m 89 pounds cuz in November, because I never ate dinner and I ate light breakfasts and didn’t eat lunch often, and plus my hw stress I had to stay up till 1-2 AM everyday, so I went down to as light as 69 pounds. My stomach shrank SO MUCH since I could hardly even eat a plate of thanksgiving food! Now I gained a lot, and I’ve never been over 100 pounds. I think I still need to lose weight tho. I hope this girl can be helped, cuz she already pretty, so if she is skinnier, she will be like a goddess. It’s normal for 11/12 year old kids to be over 100 pounds so if she is 100 no one will care 😉 good luck girl we all got ya
Alpacita and I know being underweight is unhealthy but for some people being underweight is normal. My sister could eat everything in our house and not gain any weight it just depends on your metabolism
You see, a common trope with fat or obese students is that they cut the class that helps them the most: PE. And I understand that they hate the judgement of other students, and being a student myself I know that not everybody in school is very nice. But a lot of the time that’s not the case.
Just this last year, I was in middle school, and I had taken PE. There was an extremely obese girl taking that class to, and she just had a lazy, sour attitude about it. There was no nerve in her that showed she wanted to get better. She kept calling the class stupid and making jokes about it and not giving it her all. It was really saddening to look at.
I’m not saying that this girl in the video is anything like the girl I went to school with. But neither of them seem to be trying, which isn’t a good thing.
I hate how fat ppl say they have low self esteem when it’s there fault for getting to that fat in the first place. Like kids go outside and run around. Not eat ten Big Macs and 20 piece nuggets
That’s your fault mom. Her child is her responsibility and she has taught her poor eating habits and wants someone else to fix her? Judging by how big mom is she is out of control too. Obesity is an epidemic. This is so sad.
okay my opinion, my word. I feel as if the mom needs to know that yes her daughter is obese and her daughter needs some kind of health to stop keep gaining weight.But putting it out to the whole internet and whole social media isn’t going to help her. We our living in a world where we judge lots of young woman’s.Yes I do understand that she just want to help her kid but I think this should be more privately or at least turn the comments off.
Tbh she is a monster not gonna be rude but imagine her future she’s gonna have major issues with weight and it will be too late. I’m 14 and weigh at 140 witch is a bit over but I’m active everyday I have gym class I do dance I do running in cross country races but I eat bad sometimes but I’m still heathy by staying healthy
Stop giving her carbs and sugar, and less calories, simple, I lost 60 pounds in 2 months that way, and have kept it off over 2 years, all fat people need to use a little willpower and to stop making excuses for themselves
Y'all need to stop sugarcoating this! She is obese and that isn't beautiful! She is F A T! Yes, I said it because it's true! She's fat and needs lose weight and not to look beautiful! It's for she can be healthy! Because if you are almost 300 pounds at 11 then that ain't right! It's not Beautiful and fat acceptence is completely BS! If you way 300 pounds, you should fucking accept that! People are just trying to sugar coat everything! No! Obesity is one of the leading causes of death in America and that should be happening! Do you want this child to get type 2 disabetes?! She could loose a leg if she doesn't stop dropping does pounds! And you can hate all you want but deep inside you.. you know fat acceptence is completely bullcrap and so is thin privilege..
They say this to me at school and I'm not heavy....kids can be horrible and it's not fair😞 I'm slim and I have a lot of muscle which makes me heavier on the scale....but I'm not chubby really or fat and kids are so mean to me in school but I'm also tall so it kinda weighs out😑😐
Save my daughter? Mom you need to stop being an enabler and change your eating habits and such for her and yourself. You aren't a run way model.. clearly you need help too. Start going on daily walks.. push yourselves. Don't single your daughter out when clearly you aren't in great health either.
She's a little girl influenced by YOU. You're a grown woman who should fucking know better.
She needs to want to fix it, not only her mom. It’s all about exercising and eating healthier food. You can’t change a person who wont do it for herself. When it becomes mental health issues, she needs friends that accept her as she is but will show her good examples and exercise with her. Then good habits become fun and are more likely to be followed
I'm 12 years old, 5"10 and almost 200 pounds. The last time I weighed myself I was 193 lbs. I only eat one meal a day and have been working out for 2.5 hours a day. I'm feeling better but I still need to be skinnier. I'll try working out more, and eating less
Is it bad that I can relate to how she feels. I remember being afraid to change in front of people (and still am) because of my weight and because I starting to grow stretch marks on my stomach not to mention my stomach is completely pale comparing to the rest of my skin. I also hate it when I wasn’t able to fit into clothes from stores that were meant for teens (but now I can). People weren’t bullying me, but I felt like they were secretly behind my back, but I can’t wait to show everyone at my school how different I will look with a new hairstyle too because I currently lost 52 lbs and I’m still not done
When I was like 16 I was topping scales at 191 pounds. Then I dropped nearly 60 pounds at 18, to a 135, but was left with loose muscles and tissue. I lost it too fast doing cardio. Doctors tell me the only way I'll have a flat stomach is with surgery.
I have what is apparently known as a sad/frown face belly button because of the skin or what ever
