Tamela Mann's Body Transformation Will Inspire You To Get Fit All 2020

The Weight Watchers ambassador recently slid through Essence's 'Yes, Girl!' podcast to give us major winter fitspiration.

Celebrity News

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.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
