A 9-year-old girl from California lost 66 pounds after she was bullied at school, international news sites reported on Monday, December 10, 2012.
According to reports, Breanna Bond weighed 186 pounds. “Everybody at school would call me names. They would call me fatty, they would call me fat head,” Breanna was quoted as saying.
“Her pediatrician always said that she’d grow into her body and then, after a while, we went and got other doctors’ opinions. We had her tested for everything from thyroid to diabetes – her endocrinology got tested – allergies, and everything came out fine so we knew at that point we had to step things up.” Breanna‘s mother, Heidi Bond of Clovis, California, told “Good Morning America.”

Breanna‘s parents decided to take matters onto their own hands. According to reports, Heidi Bond designed an exercise routine for her daughter and the entire family. They began to walk the 4-mile trail near their home.
Breanna‘s diet limited her fat intake to 20 grams per day and she also used their treadmill for 1 hour and 15 minutes everyday. She also joined a swim team and started playing basketball.
In less than a year, Breanna lost a total of 66 pounds.
“She is an inspiration to the world and all children who are having weight issues across America, that you can do it with a pair of tennis shoes and motivation,” Heidi Bond was quoted as saying in the reports.
