Summary
From the star of TLC's My Big Fat Fabulous Life comes an empowering memoir about letting go of your limitations and living the life you deserve. Whitney Way Thore stands five feet two and weighs well over 300 pounds, and she is totally, completely, and truly ... happy. But she wasn't always the vivacious, confident woman you see on TV. Growing up as a dancer, Whitney felt the pressure to be thin, a desire that grew into an obsession as she got older. From developing an eating disorder as a teenager, to extreme weight gain in college, to her ongoing struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), Whitney reveals her fight to overcome the darkest moments in her life. She holds nothing back, opening up about the depths of her depression as well as her resilience in the face of constant harassment and mistreatment. Now Whitney is on top of the world and taking no BS (Body Shame, of course). And she's sharing the steps she took to get there and the powerful message behind her successful No Body Shame campaign. Exuberant and utterly honest, this is the inspiring story of how Whitney finally discovered her fabulousness when she stepped off the scale and into her life, embracing herself unconditionally--body, heart, and soul.--Adapted from dust jacket
