Whitney Port has admittingly gotten extremely skinny over the last year and now confesses that eating just isn’t a priority for her.
Whitney Port Getting Backlash
The former MTV reality star has been doing her norm lately, posting pictures, lounging on beaches with her son and husband, Timmy, and serving looks. The issue here is that the revealing eyes (bikinis, crop tops, revealing dresses) are showing fans an unhealthy side of Port.
Her comments have been flooded with concerns about her dramatic weight loss. People want to know what is going on with the mom of one’s body, which is kind of insane to ask if you think about it.
Unfortunately for Port, they were some of the first comments on her posts, and she could no longer ignore them.
Whitney Port’s Long Realization
The 38-year-old’s response was lengthy, but she felt the need to explain her weight loss:
“I’ve gotten a lot of comments about looking too thin. At first, it didn’t bother me. I chalked it up to people not knowing what my diet looks like,” she writes. “But Timmy brought it to my attention, as a good husband should, and said it’s not just something strangers are spewing.”
Port admitted her husband was not into her new skinny frame. “He has been worried about me. I had to think about it and figure out what has been happening because it’s not something I’m consciously thinking about!”
Port referred to food as her fuel, as it should be. “I eat to live, not the other way around.”
Whitney Port’s Scale Shocked Her
Once the realization hit her, she stepped on the scale and SLAP! “After stepping on the scale, it hit me. It’s not something I strive for,” admits Port. So now, she is trying to do something about it.
“I always feel hungry but don’t know what to eat. It’s not how I want to look or feel, though,” sharing that the weight loss is part of a more significant issue. “My excuses are that I’m too lazy to prioritize feeding myself or I’m too picky when it comes to taste and quality.”
Whitney mentions that as a mother, she needs to do better; she is influencing a whole human being and realizes that her husband AND her son are observing her extremely skinny frame and lack of eating all day.
Health Is Top ‘Priority’ For Whitney Port
Now that she is aware, Port is on the mend and making the necessary changes. She noted, “Both [habits] are unacceptable, and I don’t want to set an unhealthy example, so I promised Timmy, and I’ll promise you that my health will be a priority.”
Fans of Port know that even as a young twenty-something on The Hills alongside Lauren Conrad, she was always tall and skinny. Working in fashion, she was often used as a sample model in the Elle magazine offices.
Her frame was always on the slender side. Hopefully, Port can get back to that.
