Tiffany "Pearls" Humpert is the proud mom of a teenager with an autism spectrum disorder. In 2011, after a divorce - which resulted in her losing the step-son she was raising - she reached her highest weight of 360 lbs. A few months after her divorce, she lost her job.

Devastated and determined to never see that number again, Tiffany deemed that her "Year of Loss" and decided to lose weight. She has "put her pearls on and pushed through" loss, adversity, pain and every obstacle in her way.

As a single, working mom of a teen with special needs and president of Families for Autism Support of Texoma, Tiffany is a busy woman. This year she has realized that rearranging priorities and focusing on her own health will help her to reach out and help others, like families affected with autism and especially her son Mason.   She is determined to make the big move to a healthy lifestyle to be a better mom and advocate, inspiring many on her journey.
