Tami Roman was on a weight loss mission for several months thanks to her teen daughters. The actress and reality star recently sat down with Tania to talk about her journey to healthiness that involved a dietary supplement and a little inspiration from daughters Jazz,16, and Lyric,18.
“They were a big part of it,” said Tami to Tania. “They weren’t use to seeing their mom be about 190lbs, and I’m tall so I wear it well. But they were like, ‘Mom you have got to get it together, this is not cute. You’re about to do a new show and you need to represent.’ So I was inspired to just do something.”
Even though the journey was well worth it, Roman admitted that it wasn’t all easy. “I’m a foodie, so even when I make up my mind [to lose weight] I’m still eating thirty meals a day,” explained the star. “I can eat salad, but I’m going to eat thirty of them. So I started taking NV (dietary supplement), and it suppressed my appetite. It actually has a weight loss complex that kind of reshapes your body. So more importantly than losing pounds, I lost inches.”
Fans of Roman can catch her in her new role as Loretta Cooper on Tv One’s ‘Belle’ on February 1, 2013, and as herself on season five of ‘Basketball Wives’ set to air in Spring.
