A reality series following the life of a woman suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Whitney Thore is an average girl from a small town in North Carolina. She was once a slender dancer but during college unexpectedly gained 200 pounds over the course of a single year due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
It took Whitney quite some time to deal with the life-changing effects of her condition, but now she is content with her body and has a fresh outlook on life.
Currently living with her parents, Whitney is getting prepared to venture out on her own and claim her independence in a world that judges people by their size.
