Whitney Way Thore Declines Online Compliments About Her Looks

My Big Fat Fabulous Life star slammed commenters on Instagram who praised her for supposedly losing weight. She responded that she works out to keep her body fit and not to change her size. Recently, Whitney took to Instagram to reiterate her ideology to her fans who congratulated her for shedding off weight.

In the video, the 35-year-old mentioned that a majority of her followers are praising her for losing weight they have ‘perceived’ she has shed. She wanted to make it very clear that in reality, nothing has changed.

Whitney said she is not here to be anybody’s weight loss inspiration. Instead of focusing on her weight, she wants people to focus on how she maintains a healthy body image.

Thore added that she would rather be an inspiration as someone who learned to love herself regardless of her size.

In her words, “If you’re inclined to be inspired by me I appreciate that, I see you, but I’m just a complex human being focusing on a lot of other things in life besides losing weight, so it’s just not something I will ever feel comfortable saying thank you for.”

The owner of the fitness app NoBS Active added that losing weight is not always the ultimate goal of exercise. In her caption, she emphasized that irrespective of weight, one can implement a healthy lifestyle. If you ask her, changing the mindset is the key to happiness, rather than changing the body. Whitney reminded her fans that decreasing body weight doesn’t increase anyone’s value.

After the video was posted, there was a storm of comments supporting the reality star. One fan thanked her for shifting the perspective and added that her courage inspires her. Another follower shared that they find comfort in her words after gaining weight.

Although Whitney gets continuously criticized for her weight and workout techniques, it is clear that the example she sets gives strength to many.
