Whitney Thore from "My Big Fat Fabulous Life" stars in the TLC reality docu-series.

Whitney Thore is a dancer, a writer, a body positive advocate, and a mother to two exquisite felines. She was formerly the on-air producer of "Jared & Katie in the Morning" on 107.5 KZL and an English teacher in Korea.

After Thore was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, she quickly gained more than 200 lbs. Once a slender dancer, she felt like a skinny girl trapped in a fat girl's body; she felt as though her life was over. Struggling with self-doubt and societal pressures, but eager to continue sharing her passion for dance with the world, Thore courageously posted a self-choreographed performance piece on YouTube in January 2014. "A Fat Girl Dancing" became an overnight sensation and turned her life upside down.

Now 380 pounds, Thore has a fresh outlook on life. She has learned to embrace her body and love herself again and urges others to do the same. Following the success of her "fat girl" dance videos, Whitney launched the No Body Shame Campaign, a movement that works to fight the devastating effects of body shame and promotes self-love and acceptance. The campaign encourages people to rise above the negativity that society imposes on anyone who is "different," and to live their lives to the fullest no matter what the scale says. The movement lives by the motto: "Love yourself. Live fully. No excuses. No shame."
