Tamela Mann has been shedding the pounds and is looking fabulous. In a recent interview with The Tom Joyner Morning Show, the actress/gospel singer gushed about her slimmer body and the challenges that have come along with her weight loss — namely, having to give away her custom-made outfits.
"I've already given them away. It's like you do shifting. I just passed them down to people I don't know or blessed someone I don't know," Mann said. "A lot of stuff I had made because it's hard for us to find something that really looks, I would say, nice. It's like everything looks the same if you get it off the rack."
Her husband, David, has joined her on the fitness kick to keep his diabetes in control, but Mann said that he's been supportive and loving to her no matter what the scale reads.
"He been all over me!" she said. "That's the greatest thing. He's loved me at my heaviest and he's loved me at my smallest."
And don't think she's reached her smallest waist just yet. Mann has already lost more than 100 pounds since she began her weight loss journey and has no plans to stop anytime soon.
"I was at a 30/32, now I'm down to like a 18/20, sometimes a 16 [in] tops. But my bottom is still like a 20. I'm hippy," she said, adding that her goal is to keep on going.
"I just want to be able to go to any place, walk into any shop and find something. So my goal is to reach a 14," Mann said. "We been working. It's an uphill battle."
