The reality star says she's "not out here to be anybody's weight loss inspiration."
Whitney Way Thore -- star of "My Big Fat Fabulous Life" -- routinely documents her workouts on Instagram, but doesn't want to hear from fans applauding her for possibly losing weight.
In a video posted on her Instagram page Thursday, the reality star addressed her followers and the "congratulating" many of them have been doing in her replies.

"I've been reading my comments, and a large majority of them are people congratulating me for losing some amount of weight that you have perceived that I have lost, but I guarantee you that I'm still fat as s--t, and this hasn't changed from day 1," said Thore.
"I'm just not out here to be anybody's weight loss inspiration," she continued. "If you're inclined to be inspired by me I appreciate that, I see you, but I'm just a complex human being focusing on a lot of other things in life besides losing weight."
"It's just not something I will ever feel comfortable saying thank you for," her message went on. "If you're inspired by me that's wonderful, I'm glad, but I hope it's because I'm a woman who learned to love herself no matter what size she is."
In the caption for the video, she also told her followers that "your value does not increase if your weight decreases." It also read, "You can implement healthy behaviors as a fat person or a thin person independent of weight. Changing your body is not the [key emoji] to happiness, but changing your mindset is."
Thore's TLC reality series chronicles the dancer's life and her body positivity after polycystic ovarian syndrome caused her to gain over 200 pounds in college. The show's sixth season recently wrapped up in March.
