Hi! I'm Tiffany Rose.  I'm a 32-year-old writer, YouTube video blogger, manager of an amazing drummer Chris Belcher, future author of a New York Times bestseller, (speaking it into existence :) and the only living person who openly admits that Interstellar is still one of her favorite movies. 
A little over two years ago I weighed nearly 300 pounds.  After 20 years of being overweight, that was my turning point of changing my life around for the better. December 22, 2014 I went in to have Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery.  I contemplated for almost 10 years on whether to have weight loss surgery, and I must admit it was the best decision I ever made for myself.  I started making healthier choices in regards to what I ate, and began exercising regularly.  A little over a year after I began, I had lost 80 pounds.  I was clueless at the time, but my journey to realize, and focus on, my emotional eating was just the beginning.

Above is a photo of myself weighing in close to 300 pounds standing next to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2007.  This day was everything I could ever dream of!  I was so nervous walking on the stage to accept my degree. Even though this was a joyous occasion and much to celebrate, I felt horrible inside and out. I was battling depression, obesity, stress, and anxiety.  I looked like I had it all together on the outside graduating from college with honors, but I was slowly dying inside.

Even though I lost 90 pounds, this did not take away my love for food, or the cravings I have from time to time.  So I decided to do some research on different recipes, and ways to eat that won't have me feeling defeated or guilty. I also started trying different exercises that are enjoyable, and are easy on my joints.
I am the first to admit, surgery is not the fix all to fighting obesity.   To this very day I still fight to not gain the weight back, and continue to strive in reaching my weight loss goal. Together I believe we can achieve whatever health goal we have set for ourselves with teamwork, motivation, and love.  I want you to know that I am so excited and thrilled you are here!  As I post blogs, articles, sites, and photos, feel free to leave comments, and also subscribe and follow my social media sites.  I do take the time to read every comment that comes through.  I appreciate your support, love, and generosity. 
Other notes about me: I am a Georgia Peach, but I recently moved in December of 2016 to New York, New York with my two dogs Shakes and Sugar.  I was born in Queens, New York, and move to Atlanta at the age of 3.  I relocated to South Carolina in 2003 to attend college at Claflin University, and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelors of Arts Degree focusing on English and Creative Writing. I moved back to Atlanta, GA in 2010 for a career opportunity. I currently work for Apple Inc. May of 2016, I graduated from Strayer University with a Masters of Science in Management with a Concentration in Marketing.

I've had the same small group of friends for almost 20 years whom I love dearly.  Every year we make it our duty to ensure we plan a trip to see each other and celebrate our friendship. I love dogs, music, documentaries about space and nature, Oprah, and President Barack Obama and first Lady Michelle Obama. I have a dream of becoming a New York Times Bestselling author, traveling around the world taking photos, and eating amazing food!
