Tamar Braxton from 'Braxton Family Values' Reveals She's Gained Weight in New Tweet after Spending Thanksgiving with Boyfriend and Son

On a Twitter update to her fans, Tamar Braxton reveals she's been avoiding the weighing scale for months as she knows she's gained weight and hasn't been working on it. Now that she's determined to get back in shape, she decided to step on the scale and she hilariously says it "talked back" to her. 

Tamar Braxton insists her weighing scale talked back as she stepped on it, saying "you know you big." This humorous response to avoiding the weighing scale is enough for Tamar to realize that it may finally be time to get back in shape and do it right this time.

After all, she says that in the past couple of months, she knows that she gained weight, it's just that she hasn't been doing anything to improve it. 

"I've been avoiding the scale for a few months cause I know [I] haven't been doing right."


Braxton spent the Thanksgiving holiday with her boyfriend, David Adefeso, and her son, Logan Herbert. Their gathering also included more than 30 of Adefeso's family members and friends. 

It was a special Thanksgiving celebration for Tamar, as it's the first time she spent it with David's family. In fact, David's mom acknowledged her as her "daughter," and it meant the world to the reality TV star. 


In fact, Adefeso expressed how much love his family had for Tamar and Logan, officially welcoming them into the family. 

"Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life."

Yesterday my @tamarbraxton , Beans and I hosted our first thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80 year old mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her and she loves them right back. During dessert my mom stood up to speak and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her....or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do. Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home! #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Aside from Thanksgiving, the happy couple also celebrated David's 50th birthday recently, which he celebrated with a "The Great Gatsby"-themed bash. 

Braxton went all out for her man's celebration, flying in his close friends and family from around the world, just to make him feel special. 

With so many celebrations happening for the couple left and right, the next thing that their fans are anticipating is the wedding proposal that David will be doing for Tamar - which will reportedly happen very soon!
