My Big Fat Fabulous Life: “It’s very presumptuous of you to think that I work out to lose weight” – Other “delicate” answer from Whitney Way Thore on Instagram

“My Big Fat Fabulous Life” star Whitney Way Thore has published many exercise videos.

And in one of her latest posts, a fan, curious about maintaining her weight, asked:

“Hi Whiney, no disrespect, but I do not understand why you are always working out and you never lose weight. Do you have a medical issue? I am seriously wondering. I quit the gym because it gave me torn knee ligaments. I am overweight to. Very down on myself. Wish I had your confidence.”

So Whitney, visibly upset (new, right?), replied:

“Even if you mean no disrespect, this question is disrespectful. You have no idea what I weigh today, or what I weighed 3, 6, 9 months ago, etc. if you think you know me well enough to know that, you would also know that I do have a medical issue. Google can tell you that as well. Last, it’s presumptuous (and in this case, incorrect) to assume to a fat person works out to lose weight. I don’t work out to lose weight. I work out because it makes me stronger, more flexible, and less anxious — to name a few reasons. And for the record, I’ve actually lost over 60 pounds (even though this wasn’t something I actively tried to do). I’m sorry that you’re down on yourself. I hope you can find a workout program that works for you and your knees.”

Remembering that Whitney has been very annoyed when someone asks something related to her weight.
