Mo’Nique, the once hefty comedian and actress who starred in The Parkers and now stars in Phat Girlz, has decided to speak out about her weight loss. She is known for referring to herself as ‘fat and fabulous’ but now that she has lost 40 pounds maybe she should change that phrase to ‘fit and fabulous.’ She told Jet magazine that after a conversation with her husband she decided it was time.
“I decided that I had to get some of that off me. Sid and I had a conversation. What he said to me was motivation. It was so gentle and sweet and he wasn’t judgmental. He said, ‘Baby, that’s too much and I want you for a lifetime.’”
When she was at her biggest she weighed 262 pounds but she decided to hit the gym regularly and she also cut red meat out of her diet. As for the gastric-bypass rumor she replied,
“I’m so scared of needles. Baby, for them to take blood from me, it’s a production. This was truly making the commitment to watch what I eat and commit to working out. I stopped eating red meat. I want to say to big people, ‘Let’s be healthy big people.’ Everybody can’t be a size 0 or 45, but let’s be healthy.’”
Mo’Nique now weighs 224 pounds and she hopes to get down to 200.Tags: Celebrity Weight Loss, Mo'Nique, Phat Girlz
