According to PopSugar, in 2008, Tara was at a dance audition for a cruise ship when she was told she was a great dancer but she had to lose weight if she wanted to work for the cruise ship.

 
After years of trying different ways to lose weight such as cutting carbs and doing cardio only workouts, Tara lost some weight and got a job with the cruise ship, according to PopSugar.  But she was told she had to lose more weight.

 
According to PopSugar, after working her butt off and living off salad, Tara started to fall apart and that is when she would sneak and binge on dinner rolls and chocolate then go and throw it up.  According to PopSugar, after 7 or 8 months, Tara was given an ultimatum by the cruise ship “lose weight or go home”.  Tara decided to go home.
