Obesity In Child Performance Shows During Exercise

by Ann Marier

Obesity in childhood is no laughing matter. This disorder can have significant ramifications on the youngster's health and well-being. This includes his psychological state as well. Anyone who has had obesity in child experiences knows all too well how damaging this can be.

When I was a little girl I had serious weight issues. This led to over obesity in child experiences that I had. I never wanted to get involved with sports and I definitely hated when others picked teams. I knew that I would be the last in the lot to get picked. My weight had significant impact on my ability to participate in these kinds of events.

I remember one of my gym teachers asking me if I had asthma because I couldn't catch my breath. We had just been running and even though I had no breathing problems my obesity in child performance really showed when I exerted myself. This led to more weight issues because I soon came to hate exercise.

By the time I reached fifth grade I was 125 pounds. Other kids treated me like a leper and I was soon finding myself sitting alone watching others play outside. This had significant psychological ramifications as well. I began to identify myself as an obese child. I never really imagined that I would ever be "normal" and this led to an awful chain of events in my obesity in child experiences.

My mother soon started me on another diet. I was on my first one when I was about eight years old. However, as I got older, the diets became stricter and more rigid. My relationship with food was damaged through my obesity in child experiences because I saw it as an enemy rather than a source of nourishment.

By the time I entered middle-school I had lost and gained hundreds of pounds through yo-yo dieting. Each diet was successful but as I got back into my old habits, I gained back all the weight and then some. My obesity in child experience was a dreadful thing and I hate to see that the problem still exists for so many kids today.

It took many years and many hours of diligent exercise, some therapy and a lot of self confidence to overcome my obesity in child experiences. I now live a happy, healthy life free from dieting. Hopefully, kids who have obesity in childhood today will focus on eating well and exercise rather than fat.
