Tiffany is already working hard towards her Flo-Jo goal, having lost 50 lbs already in the last year, something that she told PEOPLE has helped her feel better both mentally and physically. She continued, “First of all, it feels good to be able to wear a two-piece and not feel like, ‘Oh, I got to put a whole sarong on and a very large coverup, coverall situation. It feels good to be able to be free. And the main thing about the whole transformation is my knees feel like they’re happy. And when my legs is happy, Tiffany’s happy.”
The untitled Flo-Jo biopic was announced in June and will be produced by Tiffany with Flo-Jo’s widower and former coach Al Joyner as a creative consultant.
