After a tumultuous 2012 that had her looking like a bully, Tami Roman is starting off 2013 with a positive outlook and a new look in general thanks to a 35-pound weight loss. The Basketball Wives star, who has been particularly MIA after the whole petition against her show and public outcry from people back in May, decided to quit smoking recently, and when she did, the stress of it all caused her to pack on the pounds. In an interview with Shape, the 41-year-old mother discussed the reality check she gave herself by doing research. “I’m big on research. I decided I had to make a change, so I researched and researched until I found a product I liked, which is how I settled on NV and NV Sprinkles.”
If you don’t know, NV Sprinkles is a dietary supplement powder that Roman has been pushing since mid-last year. It’s said to reduce your hunger and help reshape your figure if you take one supplement during breakfast and another at lunch. Roman says that she didn’t want to just stop cutting out her favorite foods, but she did want to eat healthier and less. “I lost seven pounds in the first week of taking NV without making any major changes to my life,” Roman says. “But in the second week, I thought to myself, Tami what would happen if you added a little light exercise to your routine? So I started at 10 minutes of working out. That soon became 15 minutes, then 20, and then it became 30.”
Roman told both Shape and OK! that she’s already down six dress sizes and last time she checked, she was a size six. At 41. Well gon’ head with your bad self! And to go with her new weight loss, homegirl has new acting endeavors in the works. She told OK! that she’s going to be on the new scripted show Belles on TV One, is starting a cosmetic line, and will continue to go out for lunch and go on trips with her “Basketball Wives” friends when the show comes back on Vh1 (probably in the spring or early summer). Until all that starts though, she’s pushing for people to be healthier, telling Shape, “We’re seeing people in their 30s dropping dead of heart attacks. People really need to make a conscious decision. It won’t be instant. It takes you time to gain the weight; it’ll take time to lose it.”
