Apos: Do you remember when CNN was a respected news organization?


If I were a robot with a mechanical brain, it would lock up and catch fire trying process that. Fortunately I have a biological brain which is subject to the protective effects of beer,

mrsirjojo: The problem with the article is that it passes childhood obesity off as active disease, of which the girl is an unfortunate victim.

You do not "fight" childhood obesity. It is not childhood cancer.

Same with "the eating habits didn't stick". Wrong. She "continued to eat badly".

No one else sees this use of passive vs active and gets annoyed?


Yeah! She should have hauled her fat baby ass to the gym as soon as she hit 25 lbs, and taught herself all about proper nutrition before she got to kindergarten and really started gaining weight. Lazy bum!
/Seriously?

AbbeySomeone: The My Little Pony Killer: By the time she was a year old, Breanna weighed close to 25 pounds.

She was probably getting non-stop calls for shows like Maury as well. She had help getting to 25lbs within a year of being born. Her parents ought to be taken out back and shot for this abuse.

You're an idiot and have no children. My daughter weighed 28 lbs when she was a year old and wore a size 3T. She has never been unhealthy or in any way inactive, or fat. She is now 5'11" and 137lbs, a real lardass adult.
Babies/children mature differently.


a "lardass" at that weight/height? the prefered nomenclature is "normal weight obesity"!

iheartscotch: Good thing she lost the weight; but, mother of god; if you can't control what your child eats; you suck as a parent.


As a fat kid I had school to keep me supplied with sweets and other unhealthy items that my parents wouldn't dream of letting me eat. They could control what I had for breakfast and dinner but they couldn't force me to eat my packed lunch.

School lunches are horribly unhealthy and the schools make lots money off vending machines, school stores, etc.

No, you don't understand. If you don't harp on your kids body image, prevent them from making decisions, and hover over them to monitor their every move, you are a bad parent.

She still weighs over 120 pounds. Isn't that a little hefty for a nine-year-old?

Still, good for the parents for taking action, and good for the kid.

Contents Under Pressure: The doctor who told them their 25 pound 1 year old would grow into it should be metaphorically taken out behind the barn and shot. The kid could very well have a metabolic problem on top of everything else.


But his tee time was in 20 minutes. Why do you hate the mental well being of our doctors?

It can be still "hefty" However, in 4 years it can be normal body mass (at 13 she might be her adult height). At 9, it might be healthier for her to maintain that weight and grow into it than for her to loose all the weight and have to add weight to grow into.
