Whitney Thore Says She Was at ‘Probably the Lowest Point in My Life’ When Considering Weight Loss Surgery


Whitney Thore has been a champion of body positivity since she first hit the scene with her viral dance video. However, that doesn’t mean Thore hasn’t thought of going a different route when it comes to changing her physical appearance. The pandemic and a serious breakup in Thore’s life over the past year led her to do something that she may have never considered in the past—researching and considering weight loss surgery.

Thore’s journey of body positivity started back in 2014 when she decided to post a video of her dancing online, and she titled it “Fat Girl Dancing.” She posted the video because she had a background in dance, yet as she gained weight in her twenties, she stopped doing the thing that she loved most. The video was to reclaim her love of dance and to show the world that it doesn’t matter what size you are.
