We're only a few weeks into winter, but it's never too early to start getting your summer body all the way together. Just ask Tamela Mann, who's been consistently serving up all the crazy, sexy, spiritual vibes since the beginning of her fitness journey in April.

The Weight Watchers ambassador recently slid through Essence's Yes,Girl!podcast to give us the winter fitspiration we didn't know we needed, and we are taking notes. According to Tamela, the first step to transforming your life and snatching your waist is having an accountability partner:

"I didn't think it was going to go as well, but I made my mind up to be healthier and to be able to have accountability with WW and my coach. This new app that they have makes it so much easier to follow. I'm just really enjoying my journey."

For Tamela, getting in shape has been less about the number on the scale and more about her quality of life. She says her Weight Watchers' regimen has allowed her to work on her fitness at her own pace. She told Essence:

"What happens when we say 'diet,' [it's] 'You can't have this,' 'You can't have that,' and 'You can't do that.' That's not what WW is doing, and that, to me, gave me a little comfort there where I can kind of pat myself on the back---where I don't have to be pushed into a corner of a bunch of 'You can't do' and 'You don't do this.'"

Although you may feel most inspired to hit the gym after a long scroll on your Instagram feed, Tamela wants us to adopt a new approach when it comes to weight loss. Instead of doing it for the likes, the 53-year-old mother-of-four encourages us to get fit for our damn selves.

"It has to start individually with ourselves. I'm not just doing this for my family, I'm doing this for myself. A lot of times we'll want to do everything for everybody else, but I want to encourage people to do it for them."

Tamela Mann isn't the only celebrity who's been focused on her health. The following entertainers will also inspire you to renew your gym membership long before the new year arrives.

Five months into 2022 and already it feels like it has been a year. New levels come with new devils (new stresses) and though we are proud of our accomplishments in the year so far, as a team, to say we aren't in need of a vacay is an understatement. A part of recovery from burnout includes being intentional about how we approach our self-care practices.
