Actress and comedian, Mo’Nique, is looking even more stunning in a recent photo she shared on Instagram. The mom-of-four also opened up about the secret to her extreme weight loss, and it’s not what you’d expect.
In an Instagram photo uploaded yesterday, the “Precious” star sizzled in a sleeveless black dress that hugged every inch of her hourglass figure.
Oozing class and confidence, Mo’Nique styled her hair in a sleek top bun and proudly displayed her gray hairs. Her caption also revealed a woman sure of herself.
“50 IS FEELING REALLLL GOOD SISTERS. When I was younger I thought 50 was old. I actually feel younger now, then when I was younger.”
Achieving her current figure was no easy feat, but the Academy award winner put in the work and stayed committed to a healthier lifestyle.
Fortunately, she had a lot to keep her going on the journey. Apart from her husband urging her to lose weight because he wanted her “around for a lifetime,” the comic also thought of her children.
Mo’Nique said last year:
“I have a son who is 23, but I also have a son who is nine. And we have twins who are seven. I want to meet their children. I want to be able to play with their children. I don’t want to be a burden on my family due to self-neglect….I was fortunate to watch my grandmother play with my children. I want to be in the same position.”
A high blood pressure diagnosis also told her it was time to “save her life,” and she went for it with everything she had. Earlier in March, Mo’Nique took to Instagram with good news; for the first time since she was 17, the actress weighed below 200 lbs. It may mean little to some people, but for a woman who once weighed 300 lbs, it counts as remarkable progress.
What’s more, she shared with fans how she achieved the loss, revealing that it was “with no surgery” and “no pre-packaged foods.”
Instead, Mo’Nique disclosed three secrets including raw foods and dance:
“I want to share with y’all what it looked like on the scale this morning, and I want to share with y’all the goodness that you can eat and still drop this weight. It’s called raw foods, it’s called dancing your pounds off. It’s called giving yourself the chance to live the best life you can live.”
On October 16, Mo’Nique showed her fans what it feels like to live her best life, dancing to Cardi B’s hit song, “Bodak Yellow” on a photo shoot set.
Judging from the many pictures flaunting her new body on social media, Mo’Nique is not only slimmer, but she’s also brimming with confidence!
