( CNN) Whitney Thore had gained virtually 100 pounds. It stemmed from polycystic ovary disorder, and she found it hard to accept her larger figure.
Her emotional distress peaked while she was living abroad and dealing with a breakup. Frustrated and unable to find aid, she turned on some music and started to dance.
“I was all alone in an apartment by myself, and I closed my eyes and merely naturally let my body move the route that it is intended to, which is something I hadn’t be done in order to over a decade. And as I’m only moving, just swaying, eventually I started moving more and more. And within minutes, I was just hollering, ” she said.
