  1. Yh like moms like she doesn't eat unhealthy she eats pretty healthy…. HONEY BO BO BE LIKE:deep fried foods.. Fried OREOS OO AND I LIKE CHIKEN NUGETS OHH YEAH PIZZA CORN DOGS DESERT OH YEAHHHHHH…….

  2. Question is. Which came first. Unhealthy eating resulting in weight issues or breathing difficulties (asthma)? I strongly suspect that once a healthy lifestyle and weight loss is achieved the asthma will improve.

  3. I understand where shes coming from. I was diagnosed with asthma at 4 and they plumped me up with all those steroids.😂 I was 199 in 5th grade. My doctors never mentioned anything to my mom because it was "just the steroids". When I turned 14 I realized that I ate SO MUCH MORE than probably an average adult it wasnt just the steroids. I reached my heaviest of 235 lbs at 15. Just turned 16 and I'm 25 pounds down😭. All ya gotta do is eat right I swear it makes such a big difference.

  4. Bitch you're just fat so start working out and stop acting like a model fatty doo do bitch with a face like hippo. How do you even fit in clothes?? Fat bitch.

  5. who the hell cares? i hate how they care about some girl they don't even know! and who gives a fuck if she's fat

  6. Thank Cameron! James Cameron raised the bar, James Cameron doesnt do what james Cameron does to be james Cameron. James Cameron does what james Cameron does because he IS James Cameron.

  7. Obviously it didn't work, I'm sorry but this kid needs to be off TV and get her life straighten out. If she keeps on going on like this she's going to have crazy health issues!
