Thore, star of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life', has come a long way since viewers first saw her on her successful TLC reality show in 2015. Whitney had gone viral for her dance video 'A Fat Girl Dancing' at the time, and this scored her the chance of a lifetime — a reality TV debut! She was honest on the show about her huge weight gain. Whitney gained more than 200 pounds in her first year of college and was subsequently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. According to the PCOS Awareness Association, the symptoms may vary but around half will suffer weight gain that is difficult to decrease.

The North Carolina native was always a dancer but stopped because she was embarrassed by her weight increase. She decided one day that she would not let her body image prevent her from doing what she enjoys, and she became a champion for her body-positive 'No Body Shame' campaign.

Over the years, she has been able to express how her style has developed as she has grown more comfortable in her skin. Whitney's fashion taste has started to create headlines, whether it's her viral sweat trousers or charming vacation clothing.
