Tiffany Bellfield was born in Austin, TX in September 1984 to U.S. Marine John Bellfield and his wife Kathy.  As a baby, her parents moved "back home" to Richmond, Kentucky, Jacks Creek to be exact.  They later moved to Waco, KY (Madison County), where she attended school until the 3rd grade.  At age 8, Tiffany and her mother moved to Lexington, KY.  Her mother enrolled Tiffany in the magnet programs at Dixie Magnet Elementary, Lexington Traditional Middle School, and Bryan Station High School.

During her teenage years, Tiffany was involved in 4–H, church, and community organizations.  And she would work with her grandfather in the tobacco fields.  In addition, she would paint and do arts & crafts with her grandmother, Bessie Johnson.  After graduating in 2003 from Henry Clay High School, Tiffany enrolled in and attended Nursing School at Bluegrass Technical College.

Two years into her studies, she gave birth to her first and only child, Makayla.  Shortly after, she went back to school and in 2006 Tiffany received her Nursing Assistant Certificate.  While working at the University of Kentucky, she managed as a single mother but she was dealing with a lot of health problems so she worked off and on.  At 325 pounds, Tiffany was miserable and in 2012 she took time off from work to focus on recreating herself.  She went from 325 pounds to 289 and then to 250 and started to feel better!
