Comedian and actress Mo’Nique first gained fame for her role as Nicole “Nikki” Parker in the UPN series, The Parkers, while making a name as a stand-up comedian. But it was her Oscar-winning performance in 2009’s “Precious” that put her on the map in Hollywood. Yet, after being known for and spending most of her career embracing her big girl status (often saying bigger is better) Mo’nique opted to lose weight for a number of reasons.

One of those reasons is what her husband said to her that Mo’Nique revealed on Arsenio.

“When my husband asked me my weight, I answered and he said ‘…That’s too much weight. I want you around for a lifetime and that’s not healthy.’

It was at that moment that  I went through guilt, I went through shame, because of my size.  Because I never felt love like that before.”

That’s when Mo’Nique said she decided to “save her life.”  Now, she’s using her star power to inspire her fans to lose weight.

“For a long time I was a child in my way of thinking. I thought that I could eat what I wanted, do 
what I wanted, and was reckless in the sense of abusing my body. That’s when I was younger.”
