Breanna Bond, aged 9, lost 66 pounds after being targeted by bullies. Bond weighed 186 pounds before losing the weight.
In an interview with ABC News, Bond spoke about the treatment she received from her peers.
“Everybody at school would call me names,” Breanna told ABC News. “They would call me fatty, they would call me fat head.”
ABC News adds that Bond began gaining weight when she was only an infant. By the time she hit kindergarten she was already 100 pounds. She had trouble moving around and keeping up with kids her age.
Examiner reports that Bond’s parents had taken her to doctors and had her tested for various medical conditions but nothing came back positive.
Bond’s mother, Heidi Bond, created a diet for the whole family and included a new healthy lifestyle that involved more activity like four mile walks on a nearby trail.
"She is an inspiration to the world, and all children who are having weight issues across America,” says Bond’s mother.
