Currently she weighs 380 lbs. her name is Whitney Thore and she's 30 years old. She has started back dancing and teaches dancing. Has You Tube videos and has started a campaign Where she doesn't want people to be ashamed of themselves. Will you tune in?

No, won't be watching. Is there some kind of treatment for her or those who have the syndrome? Is surgery the way to get it taken care of? Was she the gal on the Dr. Oz show who had tried all sorts of weight loss but discovered a condition that not a lot is known about?

Don't know.i don't watch Dr.Oz. One of the forms of treatment is to take metformin, a diabetic medication. One of my girlfriends has it and she never wanted to take diabetic medication if she wasn't diabetic.

She is tryng to lose weight and she's teaching dance classes. I think the flipside s that she's showing that you can be overweight and workout. You can't use obesity as an excuse not to workout.

Not at all interested. She seems obnoxious.

So she should just hide away out of public view until she loses the weight? Nice attitude. And we wonder why people have eating disorders. Heaven forbid that someone should actually be able to maintain any sense of self-esteem if they are overweight. They should find themselves disgusting until they lose weight?

No I wont be watching that. The only reality type shows I watch are the singing competition shows like the Voice and American Idol, and I watch Project Runway. I don't watch those housewives shows, Kardashians, or anything. TMD (Too much drama!).
