Mo’Nique Discusses Dramatic 82-Pound Weight Loss: ‘I Had To Do It For My Husband And My Children’

March 4, 2014  |  

Mo’Nique is looking amazing these days, but her remarkable transformation definitely did not occur overnight.

“The journey has been amazing,” the “Blackbird” actress told Hello Beautiful at the 22nd Annual Pan-African Film and Arts Festival. “It truly let’s you know what you’re made of.”

Over the past year, the 46-year-old mother of four has dropped over 80 pounds.

“People always say ‘Mo’Nique, what motivates you?’ I had to do it for my husband and my children,” she explained. “And I have to get out of my own way.”

She also offered advice to others who may be struggling to get their weight under control for health reasons.

“I say to those people who are desperately trying to get healthy, in those moment where you feel like you can’t go any further, you can.”

Her transformation has been amazing.
