Overweight At Age Five
Amber’s overeating stemmed from her early childhood. By the time she turned five, she had weighed 160 pounds (72.5 kg). That’s four times the average weight of a five-year-old girl. As a child, she used to complain about never feeling full.
At a young age, Amber struggled to play with the other kids. Because her weight gathered in her lower legs, she struggled to run. As her anxiety increased, Amber resorted to emotional eating, resulting in a vicious early habit.
