16-Year-Old Who Weighs 22st Blames Her Mom

An overweight teenager from Gloucester blames her mother’s overfeeding for her obesity.

On the show “It’s Your Fault I’m Fat,” the 16-year-old revealed her feelings about the way she was raised at home, as reported by The Sun.  

"My mum probably gives me too much and I eat it because it's there," she explained. "I wish she wouldn't give us such big portions, then I wouldn't have grown such a big appetite and I wouldn't be as big as I am now. I'm not saying it's her fault, but it kind of is.”  

Evie, who weighs over 300 pounds, said that she is often too embarrassed to leave the house because of her weight.

"It frustrates me how big I am. I've always been overweight from a young age. I was always chubbier than all the other kids," she said.

EMBARKING ON A SIX-WEEK WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY

Evie’s parents themselves are also overweight – the family’s combined weight is 840 pounds.

The family shared their six-week weight loss journey during the “It’s Your Fault I’m Fat” episode.

A recent study on childhood obesity revealed that the number of affected children in the US has increased.

Evie had recorded an emotional video clip in which she begged her mother and stepfather to help her lose weight.

She said: "I've got to this point where I don't want to get any bigger," Evie revealed. So, please could you help me lose a lot of weight? You guys could be a little bit more supportive. As in, when I'm trying to do diet, if you'd join in it would be beneficial for all of us. You were the one who was overfeeding me."  

LOSING POUND AFTER POUND

The family reduced their daily intake to 500 calories by replacing two of their three meals a day with shakes. They also stopped eating desserts.

After six weeks, Evie lost almost 30 pounds, while her mother and father lost a little over 20 pounds each.

A recent study on childhood obesity revealed that the number of affected children in the US has increased.

A combination of lifestyle factors, such as poor eating habits and lack of exercise or calorie-packed school lunches, continue to increase obesity, wrote David S. Ludwig, M.D., professor of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

The study showed that American children continue to gain excessive weight, with the most pronounced increase in obesity occurring among children from 2 to 5 years of age.
