Whitney Way Thore stands five feet two inches tall and weighs well over 300 pounds, and she is totally, completely, and truly...happy. But she wasn't always the vivacious, confident woman you see on TV. Growing up as a dancer, Whitney felt the pressure to be thin, a desire that grew into an obsession as she got older. From developing an eating disorder as a teenager to extreme weight gain in college to her ongoing struggle with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Whitney reveals her fight to overcome the darkest moments in her life. She holds nothing back, opening up about the depths of her depression as well as her resilience in the face of constant harassment and mistreatment. Now Whitney is on top of the world and taking no BS (body shame, of course). And she's sharing the steps she took to get there and the powerful message behind her successful No Body Shame campaign. She even reveals her favorite F word (it's probably not what you think), the thrill of doing it with the lights on, and the story behind the "Fat Girl Dancing" video that started it all.
Exuberant and utterly honest, I Do It with the Lights On is the inspiring story of how Whitney finally discovered her fabulousness when she stepped off the scale and into her life, embracing herself unconditionally - body, heart, and soul.

You don't have to be fat to love this message!
Great story and well preformed. Whitney is a very intelligent woman. I found myself smiling many times, and even got teary eyes once or twice. I've recommended this book to many women in my life already. Hell, men should read it too!

Whitney is a joy to listen to, with her Greensboro background not far from my own (my grandmama lives in Black Mountain!) and her constant sense of humor. Listening to her story is hard at times, making your heart ache with sympathy pains, but she makes it feel like girl's night, laughing at all the right places and righteous fury at others.
Girl, thank you. Thank you for understanding and for being a champion of body positivity in all the right ways and for DANCING.
