Whitney talks about weight loss surgery
After her former fiance Chase Severino cheated on her and had a baby with another woman, Whitney started having doubts about her body.
Speaking to her boyfriend Buddy in December, who she has now broken up with, she asked him if he thinks she should get weight loss surgery.
Whitney openly asked Buddy if he thinks Chase would have done what he did, if she didn’t look the way she did, but he didn’t have a response.

Has Whitney had weight loss surgery?
Whitney considered getting bariatric surgery in December 2020, but it has been an option she has thought about since season one.
With the process usually being a lengthy one, it is highly unlikely that she would have had the surgery within just over a month.
Whitney has not made any announcements about getting surgery. Plus, if she had, it would most likely have been aired on the TLC show.
Instead, it looks like Whitney is focusing on a workout programme, and at the end of 2020, she revealed that she has lost 70 pounds.

Fans react to Whitney considering surgery
Some fans believe that she might not qualify for the surgery, due to having polycystic ovary syndrome, which caused her to gain over 230 pounds.
Others think that she might not be considering surgery for the right reasons, saying she should do it for herself rather than for others.
One fan said: “Whitney, it is okay to get weight lost surgery but not for the reasons you are describing.
“You have to do it for you and for a healthy life and quality of life. Go for it.”
