If you look at Alex's videos of Ava on Instagram, it's very obvious that her weight problem encompasses her whole body. She should be old enough to be able to control her eating habits or since she is such a great inspiring cook to cook herself something healthy.
All you have to do is see a full length picture of Alex and then would probably understand. She is bordering on obese. Notice they always shoot her from the waist up or behind a counter. Her daughter has the same body shape.
Thought the same thing. Oak Brook or Hinsdale were the big ones in that area when we lived there, plus North Shore and Barrington in the Northwest suburbs. Downers Grove, not so much. Maybe its changed.
