Recently I’ve gotten a lot of comments and DMs with an…accusatory nature, asking me questions like, “If you work out so much, why don’t you lose weight? What are you eating?” and things like…”If you’re going to post workouts and not meals, that isn’t fair; we’re not getting the full picture.” 🤔 . You will never have a “full picture” of me, even from television. Do you know we shoot about 1,000 hours of footage a season that gets whittled down to fewer than 20 hours? The majority of instances anyone is shown eating are social situation or meals had while out dining. You also never see me shower, or go to the drugstore, or brush my teeth, or feed my cats, or read a book (or WRITE a book, for that matter), or sleep—are you to believe I don’t do those things, either, just because you didn’t see them? . For those of you who speculate about my eating habits, I’ll give you this: •I used to struggle with disordered eating, both purging (but not traditional “bingeing.” I used to purge regular meals), as well as restricting (eating as little as a few hundred calories a day for months at a time). The last time I engaged in either of these behaviors was in 2011 when I lost 100 pounds and —ironically— everyone thought I was so healthy. •I typically eat once or twice a day (but I’m working on eating more regularly. It’s a huge challenge for me). •Sometimes I eat past the point of fullness. •Sometimes I don’t eat enough to satisfy hunger. •I’ve been insulin resistant for 14 years due to PCOS, and that has an effect on weight gain and weight loss—no matter what weight you are. •PCOS in and of itself did not make me this fat, but it did cause me to gain a significant amount of weight over several months when I was 18. •Insulin-resistant PCOS coupled with shame, depression, disordered eating, alcohol, and lots of weight losses and weight gains have led me to where I am today. Some of this was a choice; some of it was not. . Where I am today is a woman who, just like you, is trying to be balanced, who is trying to be healthy (also mentally and emotionally), and who is just…doing her best. That’s it. •••photo by @@marie_killen//HMU by @shinypretties

Whitney Way Thore Book

Thor released her memoir ‘I Do It With the Lights On: And 10 More Discoveries on the Road to a Blissfully Shame-Free Life’ in 2016. In the book, Thor writes about she became the happy, confident woman that she is. It documents all the struggles and the triumphs.

“In I Do It with the Lights On, readers will get to understand how I became the happy, confident woman they see on My Big Fat Fabulous Life… There is so much more to me than can be edited down into 30-minute episodes and this book will reveal all the challenges and triumphs that made me the person I am today – and everything, and I do mean everything, in between.

Feeling supremely comfortable and proud in your own skin is hardest in the bedroom where we are most vulnerable, and I’ve used it as a litmus test… Once I could enjoy sex with the lights on, I knew I’d made it.” She told People magazine.
