Mo’Nique Imes-Jackson

Award winning actress Mo’Nique made headlines in 2013 when she debuted an 82-pound weight loss transformation. Mo’Nique said in an interview while at the 22nd Annual Pan-African Film and Arts Festival, “I had to do it for my husband and my children and I have to get out of my own way.” With a healthy diet and various exercise routines, Mo’Nique has managed to keep the weight off while trying to encourage her twitter follows to do the same. She tweets photos of her workouts with motivational messages to get her fans to stay healthy.
