Mo'NiqueActress/comedienne Mo’Nique talks about her 40-pound weight loss (she went from 262 pounds to 220 pounds) and the added enjoyment it brings to her sex life in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine.

“The sex is better! I have so much more energy. I can move around better, and that’s what it’s all about. I want to lose more, so I’ll just keep eating better and exercising, and the weight will come off. It took time to put in on, and it will take time to take if off. It’s still okay to be big, but let’s be big and healthy. I had to lose some weight to get healthier because I want to be around for a while. I have twin sons who are 3 and a son who is 19, and I want the opportunity to meet their children.”

Be on the look-out for Mo when her late-night talk show premieres on BET on October 5th!
