I mean look at the mom. (Not fat shaming, because you can be big/fat and be healthy.) but she doesn’t look healthy herself. How is she going to stand there and let her eat all this crap if she’s the one who’s saying “save my daughter” you could right now! She probably just isn’t healthy herself so sees no use in helping her daughter
Good fucking job mom on feeding 5k calories to your child daily. What that girl should have been taught in the beginning is SELF CONTROL, HEALTHY HABITS and HARD WORK. Only trough these steps you DESERVE self esteem. Self esteem needs to be EARNED. She seems nice and I hope she is not acting for the show and is really going to change, I blame the mom.
you say you fall back into old habits. Well then try harder, if you really cared about your daughters health then you would. You need to get rid of all unhealthy food in the house and make healthy foods for her, it’s really not that hard. If it’s hard for anyone it should be your daughter because fighting a food addiction is hard. Like come on step it up
After 2016 I went through a depression and gained 25% extra of my weight. I was miserable and depressed until December 2017 when I'm at my fiance who is a beautiful petite athletic 23 year old and she encouraged me to lose weight. I would never be with an obese woman because they would be a negative influence, and probably lead me down the path of unhealthy living
God when she said she felt like a monster that really hit home. From the youngest age I can remember up until I was 17 I thought the exact same way. The saddest part of feeling that way is that it makes it so hard to feel motivated
Single eyed Cat Most likely no, it all has to do with calories in and calories out. You have to burn more calories than you consume. Doesn’t matter how healthy you eat. I made the same mistake with peanut butter, has a lot of protein but it is loaded with fat and is a lot of calories.
When I was her age I was 200 pounds and the doctor kept telling my mom to put me on a diet, she never listened. I told her to put me on a diet millions of times so I gave up. I was also tired of getting called fat my mom and my siblings. I knew I was super unhealthy so I started to eat less and work out more I was 150 by 5 months. I got through this journey all alone 😉. Parents should really start focusing on their child's health, she clearly doesn't give a fuck about her daughter, she was getting bullied. bullied=depression=Death.
I’ve felt self-conscious about my weight almost my whole life, even though I’ve only been overweight for the past couple years. Being 18 now I am more accepting of myself and am actively losing weight, but man, 11 years old...I have a 10 year old sister and it breaks my heart to think about her feeling self-conscious or insecure about herself. She is too young to handle all the psychological crap that goes along with obesity and socializing. I really hope this young lady learns to love herself and know God loves her the way she is, and I hope she is able to become healthy.
Okay, you guys are not thinking this through. Sure, the mom gives her the food and the mom is plain stupid, but Miranda says nothing. She eats what her mom gives her. It is BOTH their faults, not just her mom.
Dude, she’s beautiful. It’s so sad that people now days feel like “monsters” in public, that’s gotta stop. To Fatist: Keep your opinions to yourself, Keep your eyes to yourself, shut the hell up and stop dissing beautiful people. THEY ARE PEOPLE. I would much rather have overweight friends than skinny, self centered douches.
I feel very bad for her, and hope she is doing well now. Seems like she has been obese her entire life though(looking at her baby pictures). Sorry to the mom but if your daughter has a slow metabolism that's where you take control and better her diet.
I’m 139 and I’m 12. I’m supposed to be around 90 pounds but for some reason I just randomly liked food and I kinda messed up. But I’m okay 👌 I only wanna try to fix my double chin. I think that girl was very nice. 😢. My matabolism isn’t BAD but It’s not the best. I think I will try not to eat a lot anymore. Ok bai
It goes both ways. *1.You'll have to teach yourself and your child how to eat only when you're hungry and eat **_mostly_** healthy food. **_Mostly_** not **_ONLY_** because that will create an unhealthy relationship with food over time.* AND *2.Parents have to stop calling others fat and generally making fun of people's bodies while their kids are hearing. This only perpetuates unhealthy behaviors both for anorexic underweight teebs and binge eating obese teens to keep doing what they're doing.* I have never ever made any fat jokes or shaming in my life not even when i was in pre-k (now 24) and never ever heard my parents doing it. It's the parents' job to teach kids to be nice and also eat healthy. This mom is a total idiot for perpetuating these unhealthy behaviors into her daughter's life. IT'S CALLED MIXING VAGUE APPETTITE SUPPRESSANTS INTO YOUR KID'S WATER WITHOUT LETTING HER KNOW!!!!!
Lady look at yourself. I gained 100 pounds in two years and I’ve lost 85 pounds in the last 11 months. I love to eat so I avoid foods that taste amazing and are rich. I instead bring bland balanced food so I don’t over eat or take in calories I don’t need. Also one meal a day and counting calories and lots of jump rope and weight lifting
I remembered hearing some where in Europe that a mother was arrested or fined for making her 6 year old dangerously obese, they even warned her as well but she just wanted to keep making him fat to see him happy, I can understand the mothers point of view alittle but still she sending her child to an early grave.
I’m a third of her weight and I fucking hate my body. I’m constantly insulted for my weight, but I can’t imagine how mean kids are to her. I feel so bad that she has to go through this and I hope that overall, she loses some weight and regains her confidence and self esteem.
The mom says she's been dieting her whole life. I don't think so, having some fat isn't a bad thing. But with that amount of extra fat you can't tell me you've been dieting. She's just passing her bad eating behaviour onto her kid.
I was an obese kid and when I hated what healthy food my mom gave me, she tried other foods or cooked it a different way.
You. Don't. Just. FUCKING. Give. Up. On. Your. Child's. Diet. You. Stupid. Cunt.
