Breanna Bond weighed 186 pounds by the time she was 9 years old.
The extra weight made it difficult for her to breathe and move around. The California girl soon became a target for bullies. “Everybody at school would call me names,” she said. “They would call me fatty, they would call me fat head.”
Breanna’s weight gain began when she was a baby, reaching 100 pounds by the time she got to kindergarten. She couldn’t keep up with the friends who were running while they played.
