Mo nique:Fat and Fabulous Weight Loss

MoNique Before and After

MoNique Before and After

Actress/comedian Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks are on the June 8 cover of Jet magazine, talking about their relationship and her recent 40-pound weight loss.

“I decided that I had to get some of that off of me,” she says. “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.’”

In the past, Mo’Nique has celebrated the fuller female form: Her 2005-2007 reality show in Mo’Nique’s Fat Chance was a beauty contest for (really) full-figured women. She also wrote two books — Skinny Women Are Evil: Notes of a Big Girl in a Small-Minded World in 2003 and a 2006 cookbook Skinny Cooks Can’t Be Trusted.

But just because she has lost 40 pounds doesn’t mean Mo’Nique’s headed to Skinnyville. She’s down to 225 pounds and says her goal is 200 pounds on her 5-foot-6 frame.

No one had ever challenged Mo’Nique to lose weight in quite that way, so she decided she had to do it, so she could be here to enjoy her family. As the pounds melted away, speculation began that Mo’Nique had had gastric-bypass surgery, but she tells Jet no way.

Don’t let the doctor tell you that your prediabetic, don’t let your daughter ask you “mom were you always fat?”, don’t let people talk behind your back or until you can not run around with your 3 year old.
