My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Thore may have overdone it on the dance floor as she is apparently experiencing immobility due to a back injury. The 30-year-old YouTube sensation turned reality star first shared the news of her injury with her Facebook fans on Monday and has continued to update throughout the week, including a message late last night in which she revealed, "I have a new sense of empathy for those of you with chronic pain and I'm vowing to take better care of my body from today on. Life without movement is not a life I want."
My Big Fat Fabulous Life's Whitney Thore and her friend Buddy are the Ross and Rachel of reality TV. They've shared a "past" together, but now seem to be just friends. At times they both seem to want more from their relationship. The season ended with the two friends seriously looking for houses to move in to together, but their plans appeared to be thwarted by Whitney's pre-diabetic diagnosis.
Whitney Thore, the 380-pound dancing star of TLC's new hit reality series My Big Fat Fabulous Life, has put polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, in the spotlight as she has attributed her rapid weight gain over a short period of time to the condition, which may affect as much as 18% of women worldwide. But how does having the most common endocrine disorder among women cause someone to gain more than 230 pounds? How much of that can be attributed to PCOS?
