Health & Fitness, Lifestyle, Reality: In My Big Fat Fabulous Life, viewers will get a window into Whitney’s life as she tries to find her way in a world that judges people by their size. She recently moved backed in with her parents at the age of 30. Determined to find happiness from the inside out and live her life out loud, Whitney rediscovers her love of dance, pursuing an aggressive dance schedule despite her weight and even teaching her first dance class for “big girls.” She’s also throwing herself into the dating scene — much to the chagrin of her often-meddlesome parents — and she’s waging war on the intolerance that she calls “the last socially acceptable prejudice.” From donning a bikini on the beach for the first time in a decade to confronting online bullies who try to body-shame her, Whitney Thore is no longer letting her fear of people’s judgment dictate the way she lives her life.
