She was teased because of her weight when she was nine. But look at her now
Breanna Bond of American Clovis in California was a deeply unhappy child. At 9 years old, the girl weighed 84 kilograms, which was extremely overweight for her age.
Simple childhood joys, like playing with peers, were not available to Breanna. Moreover, it was even difficult for the girl to walk — she slowly shifted from one foot to another foot. The little girl had practically no friends, and was bullied by her classmates.
Over the past couple of years, girl’s obesity has become a serious problem. Her mother, Heidi, was seriously frightened. The woman even thought that such changes were a result of some serious illness.
Parents could no longer look at the suffering of their daughter and sent her to a comprehensive medical examination. Based on the results of the examinations, the girl was given a treatment plan, and after 14 months, Breanna was simply unrecognizable!
Initially, doctors assumed that the girl had some kind of genetic disease or problems with thyroid functioning. But their final verdict was much simpler. According to experts, the source of all Breanna’s troubles is banal overeating and addiction to junk food.
After consulting, the girl’s mom and dad decided that their daughter needed the support of the whole family. After all, if Breanna had to go on a special diet alone, she would inevitably begin to feel like an outcast in her own house.
The Bond family thus managed to say goodbye to junk food. And then the couple, along with their children, began to go on long walks, which had not been in their daily routine before.
This was followed by jogging, and then swimming. It was then that Breanna first found something that she was truly interested in. After 14 months of hard work in the pool, the girl got a real chance to participate in the Youth Olympic Games.
