Whitney Way Thore wants to banish body shame by showing off her impressive moves. When she was a young girl she loved to dance, but she stopped doing it. Over the years, she began to gain weight. Her weight stripped away her self confidence and she was miserable.

Then, she learned she had polycystic ovarian syndrome. Her 200lb weight gain was a part of her life she didn’t want to feel ashamed of. It was time for a change, she began dancing again without shame. Since then she has received messages of support from all over the world from people inspired by her self-confidence.
Watch Whitney show her impressive moves:

Since she started dancing again Whitney has started the No Body Shame Campaign to encourage women to accept and love themselves no matter what size they are. She wants everyone to be proud of who they are, and embrace what society might consider to be shortcomings.
