“Now I’m more confident, collected, and feel like I can do anything,” said the HGTV star and interior designer
Tiffany Brooks is showing off her weight loss over the years.
“Monday motivation to keep glowing up! That’s me 70lbs ago, in 2016. I was happy, beautiful, kicking ass in my career, but not healthy.” she wrote alongside before and after photos.
“So I made water a priority, ate 5 healthy meals/mini meals a day vs. being on bulls– once a day,” Brooks continued. “Now I’m more confident, collected, and feel like I can do anything, look younger than I did 10 years ago, and love shopping for clothes!”
The interior designer received numerous comments praising her weight loss and how good she looks.
“Aged backwards! You look amazing,” one fan wrote. Another follower commented, “Wow you look completely different!!! Congrats on the hard work and the glow up! Prioritizing our health makes such a difference!”
Brooks hasn’t publicly shared much about her health journey over the years.
However, she previously posted a personal essay opening up for the first time about how she underwent a kidney and pancreas transplant after her type 1 diabetes took a toll on her body while pregnant with her son.
“My kidneys had 30% of its function left,” she wrote, recalling the health struggles after giving birth. “After a week or so of not having my full capacity of oxygen, and vomiting constantly, I was rushed to the ER. My Doctor told me that if I had gotten there hours later, I would have been dead. He immediately started dialysis. I weighed 105 pounds, had jaundice of the skin, and at 24 I was on dialysis. After being on dialysis for 5 months, I received the greatest gift of a working kidney on February 4th, 2004.”
She continued, “Then over a year later, I got a phone call that they had a pancreas for me. If this second transplant was successful this would take away my diabetes that had beat my ass for the past 20 years. I received a pancreas on October 19th, 2005.”
Since, Brooks said she has “not suffered from any signs of rejection from either organ.”
“I thank God every morning that he kept me on this earth to raise my child, to love my husband and family, and laugh with my friends,” she said at the time.
