Mo'Nique shows off dance moves in pink skirt in recent video
Actress Mo’Nique showcases her amazing curves while sharing her latest dance workout proving she “still got it” at 50.
Since dropping a tremendous amount of pounds, Mo’Nique has been sharing videos of her inspiring dance workouts on Instagram. Her latest, showcasing her under-200-lb physique, features the 50-year-old dancing her curves away with her dance partner Natoya McMurray.
Wearing a black sleeveless T-shirt that reads “Fabulous Fierce and Fit,” the pair prove they “still GOT IT” as Mo’Nique describes them in her caption. The dance number begins with a slow grind and escalates into a more complicated choreography with butt-shaking, twists and turns, and a lot of arm movement. Along with her slim figure, Mo’Nique exhibits her flexibility as she nails the dance number in a pink skirt amid cheers from others witnessing their performance.
Back in March, the actress celebrated a major milestone in her weight-loss journey when she reached the below 200-pound mark for the first time in over 33 years. The astounding accomplishment was revealed by Mo’Nique in a video where she emotionally updated fans of her progress.
“I said that I would share this journey with y’all, the weight loss and getting healthy. And today when I got on the scale, since I was 17 years old, I’ve been over 200 lbs. Today was the first time in my adult life that I’ve been under 200 lbs. So I wanted to let y’all know it’s possible, we can do it and we can get there.”
The Academy Award winner attributed her dramatic weight-loss to her own hard work and said she never relied on any gimmicks.
“For me it was with no surgery, no pre-packaged foods, not listening to no spokespeople saying ‘it’s easy, you can do it.’ It was just putting in the work and not giving up on me.”
