To Each His Own.....Actress Mo'Nique Loses 80 lbs



Recommended Posts

Congrats to anyone that can take it off and maintain it as long as it was a healthy way...I have lost and found the same 100s of pounds over the years, tried pretty much every diet, pill, group and deal a meal out there, according to my doctor all the yo yo diets have knock our bodies out of whack that a person with a normal life would be hard pressed to lose and keep off more than 10 to 15% of current body weight..sorry I need to lose more than that.

Well if she is one of the 2% of people who can lose a significant amount of weight and keep it off without surgery then more power to her.

She might find her self eating her words one day. (pun intented...)

How many of us know of people who said "When I become a parent (or fill in the blank here______) I will NEVER allow my child to have a tantrum (or ______) in the grocery store." Yeah, until you BECOME a parent and realize what an idiot you were for saying "NEVER" haha!

Time will be the ultimate test for her.

I'm pretty sure it came out that she did have by-pass, not sure how her credibility will be. I won't be looking to her for recipes or help, start with lies that it for me.

Good for her! I lost 80 pounds in 6 months on WWs and it all came back plus some with the stress of kids, family, work, etc. I would probably have been much more able to keep it off longer with the help of a personal chef, personal trainer, enough money to spend hours in the gym and someone to take care of all my familial obligations so I could focus 100% on me. :D

I lost nearly 200 lbs on weight watchers 6 years ago and gained it all back and then some...I said the same things she did..telling people that surgery was the easy way out...well now that I'm a bout to have the sleeve and reading about what I need to do before and after and for the rest of my life I can say there is no "easy"way out.im having the majority of my stomach removed!!!how is that easy??i don't wish anyone ill will.i need a boundary bigger then counting points in my life.i wish that wasn't the case.dont me mad at Monique.she just doesn't know what the rest of her life will look like yet...those of us that have lost weight and gained it back know the torment.we are just trying to save our lives.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
