What a transformation!
Tamela Mann is known for her many roles in Tyler Perry’s movies, but recently the gospel singer and actress has been making headlines for her impressive weight loss. The 50-year-old committed to an extreme lifestyle change when her husband, David Mann, 50, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
In 2014, she lost over 140 pounds. Now, in 2017, Tamela is looking better than ever!
“One of the main struggles [of breaking into the industry] was my weight!” Tamela has said. “I’ve always been good enough to be heard but not seen.”

But with health on the forefront of their minds, David and Tamela stuck to their promises to eat better and get fit. Now, they work with the American Diabetes Association to promote more active lifestyles.
“I’ve lost over 140 pounds,” she continued. “I used to be a 30/32 and now I’m at an 18/20.”
And though Tamela hasn’t been diagnosed with diabetes, she admits that she’s constantly thinking about her future health and prevention is a top priority.
“I don’t have issues with diabetes or hypertension, but I don’t want it to happen,” Tamela has said. “But I’m getting older. Sometimes it’s hard.”
