May 3, 2012 - PRLog -- As a four year post-operative weight loss surgery "success story," she was scheduled to appear on the program with Tim to talk about weight loss surgery and the need for shaping and compression garments after massive amounts of weight loss. She was there as the "before and after" model, but also was able to give some insight on how each type of shaper helped women with various issues.

Taunia says: "Everyone knows that with weight loss surgery, the weight comes off quickly and can often times leave 'excess skin.'   Many of us are unable to have reconstructive surgeries because our insurance companies consider those procedures cosmetic and elective.  In my case, all of my excess weight resides in my abdomen, and shaping and compression garments not only smooth out the troubled areas, but give me a sense of pride and confidence in my body that I wouldn't otherwise have."

"When I first arrived, I was stopped in the hall by Tim Gunn, who said, 'Hello Taunia!  We're going to have lots of fun today!'  He was immediately friendly and welcoming, and he's just as charming as he is on TV.  I was thrilled to be able to do such a lengthy segment with him on a topic that is really important in my weight loss surgery community."

Diva Taunia considers herself an advocate and activist for weight related issues, and she also speaks openly and honestly about her own weight loss surgery journey.  "It has hands-down been the best decision that I ever made for myself. I mean, look!  I'm on TV with Tim Gunn talking fashion for women like me.  Everything that happens these days is a direct extension of that amazing choice I made on March 25, 2008.  I'll always be proud of myself for taking charge of my health and recreating an entirely new and crazy life for myself.”.
