So are we!

In an interview with Essence Magazine August of 2012, Mrs. Mann explained why she decided to lose weight.  Read her interview from essence as she discusses her album "Best Days," her movie role in the movie "Sparkle," and her recent weight loss.

ESSENCE.com: You're having some good days alright. What inspired Best Days?
TAMELA MANN: What inspired me first was time. I was kinda behind on getting a project out. The lyrics of the song “Best Days” is what made me want to encourage God’s people that our best days are ahead of us and to hold on. Change is coming. We have to trust and believe that our God is still in control, regardless to what’s going on in the world.

ESSENCE.com: The album has some pop elements.
MANN: It’s the music of pop, but how I deliver it is still me. You don’t have to worry about me going too far out of the box. It’s just a different sound.

ESSENCE.com: How did you land the part in Sparkle?
MANN: I actually got a phone call for the part. I was shocked, but happy at the same time. I made myself look a little older on my audition tape, like I was from the 1950s, and David sent it in. I was so happy when I got it.

ESSENCE.com: What was it like working with Whitney?
MANN: It was a wonderful experience. I had such a good time. We talked about the Lord; we talked about family and about singing. She actually got to hear the first two songs that I recorded, “All To Thee” and “I’ll Hold On.” She was like, ‘I can’t wait to hear the rest of it. You’re gonna get ’em with this, baby.’ I was very hurt when I got the call about her passing.

ESSENCE.com: Did you spend any time with her off the set?
MANN: Every scene I had in the movie was with her. I don’t have a very big part, but it was a great part.  We’d sit and have lunch while we were filming, but I wasn’t trying to be pushy like that. I took pictures with her the last night.

ESSENCE.com: People who knew her talk about how sincere she was. Did you get to know her a little bit better personally?
MANN: She was very sincere. We were jumping to the music of Fred Hammond and John P. Kee every morning at like five, six o’clock. That was her wake up.

ESSENCE.com: You’ve slimmed down lately. What’s the secret to your new body?
MANN: I’m trying to keep this weight off. I’m working out. I have a trainer. I’m trying to eat right, not a whole lot of desserts. No sodas. Every now and then I’ll take a swig of somebody’s.

David Mann Diagnosis With Diabetes
We recently learned David Mann, Tamela's husband has been diagnosed with diabetes.  Not sure the exact date, but Joy 105 reports it was a shock to the couple and they have had to make some lifestyle changes.  David says,
We both lean on each other a lot.  When I am weak Tamela is strong and when she is weak I am strong.
Here's a video from David and Tamela Man's Social Cam page, as David shares his lovely nurse stance...Y'all pray for him!

Okay!

I am really curious about Miss Mann's fashion.  She is really bringing it and representing for plus size girls and women all over the world.  She is even rocking a different hairstyle to show her pretty dimples.  I recently found a fashion designer in Cedar Hill, Texas who has designed a couple of outfits for Miss Mann.  Her name is Tawni Haynes and she is a bad to the bone seamstress.  

You'll be surprised, I was browsing through her Facebook page and her garments are beautiful for church going people.  You know how they always putting us church folks in a box about what we can wear....
