Mo’Nique’s 82-pound weight loss owes more to the Oscar winner’s husband and children rather than her own energy to hit the gym.

The entertainer, who worked over the past year to shed more than 80 pounds, revealed her motivation to taking the weight off while chatting  at the 22nd Annual Pan-African Film and Arts Festival.

“It truly let’s you know what you’re made of,” said Mo’Nique, who labeled her journey to get rid of her weight as “amazing.” “People always say ‘Mo’Nique, what motivates you?’ I had to do it for my husband and my children,” she explained. “And I have to get out of my own way.”

For those struggling to get their weight under control for health reasons, Mo’Nique offered encouraging words, stating “I say to those people who are desperately trying to get healthy, in those moment where you feel like you can’t go any further, you can.”
