Settin’ The Record Straight:

The latest news about Tami Roman’s current weight loss follows a string of reports about Tami’s hospitalization. According to TMZ, back in 2014, Tami was hospitalized after going into “diabetic shock, “fainting,” and dehydration. Her daughter found her passed out and quickly called 911. Although Tami was only hospitalized for one day, it definitely changed her outlook on life. The life-altering experience was the first step toward Tami’s weight loss. After being released from the hospital, Tami openly discussed weight loss. At that time, she faced criticism for the same reasons: drastic weight loss. She took to Instagram with a colorful statement in response to the criticism. She assured her true fans she was fine despite her visibly thinner frame. In true Tami Roman fashion, she also had a blunt message for the haters.

“I have to hear how skinny I am on EVERY post. I am not trying, I have diabetes and this is just my world right now. I am fine and dealing with my illness accordingly,” she wrote back in 2014. “If you can’t handle me this way, please unfollow, because I don’t want to be reminded of something I already know and have no control over.”

Tami’s efforts require serious discipline and dedication which is why there are twice as many fans rootin’ for her than haters criticizing her. Congratulations to Tami Roman!
