Save My Obese Daughter

– We did just talk about
how challenging it can be when it comes to eating healthy. But growing up can be even tougher. Imagine, though, being 11 years of age, and weighing almost 300 pounds. That’s the harsh reality for Miranda. – My daughter’s Miranda,
she’s 11 years old. She’s generally a very
happy girl, very smart. She’s always been healthy, it’s just, she’s constantly gained
weight, every single year. And it’s just gotten worse. Middle school now, it’s different than when I was in middle school. These kids are mean now. – It’s kind of become, like,
a daily routine for me. Just giving up and
expecting people be mean. They say, that like the bus
shakes when I get off the bus. It makes me feel awful,
like I’m a monster, sort of. – As of now, she’s got gym class now, and she hates it. – I don’t really like
changing into my gym clothes, because my shorts don’t fit
but my tshirt’s kinda tight, so I hide in the corner and
change cause I don’t like being out in the open and changing. – Her self esteem had gotten really bad. – What I’m most scared of
for the future is just, gaining more weight,
gradually as I get older. And just, I don’t want to be like that. – I am very scared for her health, there’s diabetes on both
sides of the family. I did try to change her diet, but then you fall right back
into the old habits every time. You know, I’ve been
dieting all my life, too. And I guess I don’t know how to fix it. – We’ll meet Miranda’s mom
Julie when we get back, and we’ll also get Miranda’s
medical test results, stick around.
