Angela began using food as a way to deal with a childhood of sexual abuse from her father. She lost her husband to cancer after nine years of marriage and has an 11-year-old daughter who weighs over 200 pounds.

Angela, who once used food as a crutch, is now worried about the health and well-being of her daughter Alexandria, who is having a difficult time with the kids at school. "They make fun of me at school and it never stops," says Alexandria.
