Actress and comedian Mo’Nique continues to share photos on her Instagram of her ever-slimming body in camouflage clothing. Ever since Mo started on a journey of health, more photos surfaced showing off her fitter body. Like one wearing a camouflage print halter dress with a slit on the side. Another outfit consisted of high-waist camouflage joggers and a black shirt. Both pictures showed how Mo’Nique’s new healthier outlook on life and food has been paying off.
She’s been doing a number of dance-exercise videos on her social media as well as letting everyone know how she’s been eating healthier.
The award-winning actress gave props to her hairstylist Tommie T and her makeup artist David Day for working their magic and helping her looks come together. Mo’Nique wasn’t dressing up just for fun either. She actually had a comedy gig to do in Killeen, Texas. It took place at the Twice As Funny Comedy Lounge on Nov. 5 and 6.
In her caption, she shouted out her team that keeps her looking and feeling her best.
“Hey my sweet babies. When you have the best in the business for YOU! @the_takehomestylist & @lastlooks_davidday I am having the TIME OF MY LIFE. Never stop playing dress UP! I LOVE US 4REAL.”
“I will be turning 55 and I am so WELCOMING of all it. Everything that comes with your 50’s. I oftentimes hear folks say 50 is the new 30’s or 40’s. Not for me😘GIVE ME ALL MY 50’s. I still have work to do and I WELCOME THE CHALLENGE.”
A number of fans chimed in on the post Fans hyped her up for the look in the comments. “Absolutely gorgeous… this woman is a organic and original trendsetter…..I salute you QUEEN,” wrote one person. “Auntie … you killing it,” said another.
Mo’Nique’s weight loss is not only seen on the outside, she says she feels better on the inside after losing the excess weight. And most people do. A healthy regime of diet and exercise can help guard off nearly 80% of chronic diseases, including something a lot of Black women Mo’Nique’s age are facing: fibroids.
Obesity is a known risk factor for uterine fibroids, but physical activity can also help protect against fibroid development. Black women in the U.S. are up to three times more likely than white women to develop uterine fibroids. While noncancerous, fibroids can cause painful and excessive uterine bleeding, interfere with everyday life, cause infertility, and other health issues.
Back in 2021, Mo’Nique faced backlash after urging her “babies” to respect themselves by not wearing bonnets in public.
“It took me a minute to say what I’m getting ready to say because I want to make sure I’m not saying it from a place of judgment and that I’m saying it from a place of love,” she said. “Some of y’all have given me the title of auntie, and I’m honored that y’all do that. But there are times that auntie has to talk to her babies and say some real sh-t.”
The former Charm School host said the amount of “young sisters” wearing head bonnets outside of their homes have left her shocked and feeling disappointed.
“I saw so many of our young sistas in head bonnets, scarves, slippers, pajamas, blankets wrapped around them, and
