Comedienne and Academy Award winning actress Mo’Nique has really taken her health and weight loss serious over the past few years. Tipping the scale at 300 pounds at one time she is now over 80 pounds lighter (218) and pushing toward her ideal weight of 190 pounds. After a major health scare where the doctors told her husband to prepare to lose her, she knew that it was time for a change. I wanted to share with you not because I have completed my weight loss journey, because I’m still going. I want to help keep black women encouraged and to let them know that it’s never too late to get started.
I was depressed about it, but instead of taking care of the issue I still continued to eat ! When I started my fitness page, I was 356 pounds and I was tired of living a unhealthy lifestyle! Even knowing my family history of high blood pressure and diabetes, I continued on this path of destruction. With the help from God, my family and friends I know I can continue my journey!My highest weight was 364 pounds. I knew I had to change over time through research and by trying new things I slowly transitioned to cleaner eating, eating more fresh veggies and fruits, eating very low carb and low fat. Today, I eat cleaner, drink lots of water and I hit the gym 5 times a week with cardio 3 of the 5 days.


IT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED LADIES!! I am currently 250 pounds and still going.My advice to others is to keep going.
Please consult your physician or a qualified health professional on any matters regarding your health and well being or on any opinions expressed within this website. I tried to fool myself daily saying my weight was not out of control but it definitely was. One night, I was having dinner with my sister who, at the time, weighted half of what I did. I asked her if she wanted to share a calorie filled appetizer to which she declined, saying she was watching what she was eating because she wanted to lose weight.
I credit that night and my sister’s positive example and motivation to the success I have had this time with weight loss.The next day, I went to the store and purchased a Wii and Zumba game and began to work out consistently. I tried to switch up my exercises when I began to plateau by joining Planet Fitness and working twice a week with a personal trainer. Using MyFitnessPal also helped me a lot in tracking my food intake and showing the nutritional information of the food I planned to eat.
I decided then there was a change that needed to happen inorder for me to be healthy and happy. Time is reaching a full year since I started my journey however this still ain’t easy. We asked her to share a little about what she’d done to lose the additional weight… Hey there!


I also stopped juicing and ate different meals which kept my body guessing vs the same eating routine all the time.
I did cut out two of the foods I consumed the most of which was any type of bread and Pepsi’s. I want to show people how I’m still loosing weight as a Zumba instructor and personal trainer. As I continue to loose weight, eat healthy and eat in moderation, I want others to know that you can do whatever you put your mind to.
It is an inspiration to me because most people that I ask about weight loss tell me about the surgery. Sometimes it looks impossible but thanks to you I can see myself making the same changes with great results. As far as exercising, I did about 45 mins of cardio & 30 mins of toning 4-5 times a week! How long did it take you to lose 80 lbs?Reply Terrie says: November 21, 2012 at 6:38 pmHi Nicole!
