Singing... Take Me to the King... Amen!

You’ve probably seen David and Tamela Mann on television in Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns, in syndication on TBS and those hilaous Medea movies, and of course hear Mrs. Tamela amazing voice on Sunday gospels Jams... However, if you saw them on the street, you might pass right by them, and that's  because since the couple have lost more than 160 pounds together. David, 47, was first motivated to get healthier when he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2007. Tamela, also 47, doesn’t have diabetes but has a family history of type 2, so she’s staying on top of her health to prevent diabetes. And they’re spreading the healthy-living message on their own and as volunteers for the American Diabetes Association- per Diabetic forecast...  See their motivation story to stop diabetes inside.

Okay here's the snap on the Mann and stoping Diabetes report stopdiabetes/diabetesforecast:

"We have been married for more than 20 years and take on all of life’s challenges as a team, so when David was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes four years ago, we both decided to jump into getting healthy together by making important lifestyle changes. 
Since that time, David has since lost more than 40 pounds and lowered his A1C levels from 9 percent to 6 percent.  
Because of our ongoing commitment to our health and well-being, we kicked off a special fitness initiative this year to help us reach our goal of living a healthier life.Please join us in reaching our goal of living a healthier life. 
We are excited to be part of the movement to Stop Diabetes by encouraging the public to choose a healthy lifestyle when it comes to diet and exercise habits that empower one to control or prevent type 2 diabetes.

The Manns juggle their television careers with building a record label (Tamela is a Grammy-nominated gospel and contemporary Christian singer), working with different Christian ministries, and “shopping our new lifestyle and cooking show. 

In short, they’re swamped. But they try to find time for fitness, which can be challenging.

“My excuse was I’m real busy; I don’t have time,” David says. “But we make time for everything else. I had to force myself to make time for the exercise.” “And me, as well, to encourage each other,” Tamela adds. 

“We try to do it together.” While the Manns have a trainer who helps plan cardio and weight-lifting workouts, they also exercise at home. Plus, they’re bringing their kids along for the ride, “kicking and screaming, but they’re coming along,” David says. It helps that two of the Manns’ children work for them, so everyone is on the same schedule. And the youngest Manns serve to inspire two generations of adults. “Our grandbabies run around a lot,” Tamela says. “The house is in circles, so of course that’s kind of a playground. We have to try to wind them down!”

“The first thing people say is, ‘Y’all look good! Y’all don’t look like you do on TV,’ ” says Tamela.

“People see us every day [on TV]. They saw that we were big, and they saw the drastic weight loss in both of us,” David chimes in. He and Tamela often finish each other’s thoughts and sentences. “Everybody would ask, ‘Why are you doing it? What are you doing it for?’ ” he says. “So when the opportunity came for us to work with the American Diabetes Association, we did it.”

The Manns have shared their tips and tricks for healthy living, and guess what: When it comes to managing diabetes, they focus on the basics. So whether you’re newly diagnosed, just need a refresher, or want to reduce your risk for developing type 2 diabetes, their tips can help you achieve your goals...

Mrs. Tamela look amazing tho... YAAS!
