Since Whitney Thore was little she always loved dancing and music, however as she got older she stopped to pursue a career in radio production. Whitney then started to gain weight, 200 lb's to be exact.
Whitney's weight gain stripped her of her self confidence and she wasn't happy with herself. She then learned that she had polycystic ovarian syndrome and she realised that life was too short to be miserable with yourself and she decided to take up dancing again. This girl's got some serious moves.
