Okay, it is SURREAL to even know this happened! I've been a huge fan "My Big Fat Fabulous Life" ever since it came on on TLC. I've always wanted to meet it's star, Whitney Thore; as I think she is a FABULOUS human being and beyond inspirational. And this June at the No Barriers Summit in Lake Tahoe, I DID! In this video we discuss just about EVERYTHING, from how her show started, to loving/hating your body, dealing with negative comments,her healthy journey and so much more.
