Tamela Mann Becomes New Weight Watchers Ambassador

We've grown to love Tamela Mann as we've witnessed her journey throughout the years. Now we get to follow the "Take Me To The King" singer on her weight loss journey. The gospel star has been tapped as the latest ambassador for the Weight Watchers program. "I prayed about it for a minute to make sure that I wanted to make this step," she told ESSENCE in an exclusive interview. "Looking over my life and just thinking about everything, I was like, man, it would be great to be an encouragement to somebody else and not just to help myself get over this journey I’ve been struggling with my whole life, because I’ve lost weight and gained weight, and lost weight. I’m really excited about the lifestyle change and to be able to have people that you can connect with and who can coach you." The folks at WW (the new name for Weight Watchers) can't stop gushing about Tamela, either. "Tamela Mann is a wonderful addition to our WW family, as we build on our leadership in weight loss to become the world’s partner in wellness," Sherry Thompson, SVP of Community Engagement & Activation for WW, told the mag. "WW aims to make wellness accessible to all by helping millions of people adopt healthy habits for real life. With Tamela’s help, we hope to inspire more African American women and their communities to live healthier by providing the tools, information and inspiration to get there." #TamelaBetterWork
