Gospel singer, actress and one half of the ‘David and Tamela’ dynamic duo, Tamela Mann vowed to embark on a healthier lifestyle in 2019, and nothing—not even knee replacement surgery or a busy schedule—is stopping the star from reaching her fitness goals, including losing another whopping 50 pounds on top of her already incredible 100 lb weight loss!
Back in April of 2019, the now 56-year-old announced to Instagram last year that she was joining the WW (formerly Weight Watchers) community as an Ambassador. Other celebrity ambassadors include Oprah Winfrey and Kate Hudson, who have also slimmed down using WW.

I’ve found myself looking to her to learn how to take better care of my body because she’s taken off! She is doing so good!” Tiffany said of Mann.
After beginning WW’s new weight loss program in January of this year, the award-winning gospel singer revealed to Instagram that, “50 pounds lighter and I’m feeling amazing!” she captioned in her new slimmer post.
The Meet the Browns star told WW that she’s learned how to portion her meals. She said she eats turkey sandwiches, but “now when I have one, I’ve learned to cut it in half to make it into two meals.”
Mann typically starts her day with eggs, toast, and bacon for breakfast. “I’m beginning to eat the eggs without cheese to save SmartPoints,” she said. And her favorite ZeroPoint foods, which you can eat unlimited amounts of on the WW plan? Fruit! “There’s a wide variety of
