Mel B Readies for Fitness Week (Mar 14-20) Mo'Nique Talks Weight Loss

October 5, 2015

Former Spice Girl member Melanie Brown is in full motivational spirits for the launch of International Fitness Week, which takes place March 14th – 20th across 12 countries, but who says the USA can't get involved?

International Fitness Week is the chance for you to get motivated to get moving! It's about inspiring people across the world to make a change, find out what activity works for them and lead a healthier lifestyle. So why not get involved!

Whether you want to tone up, lose weight or simply become more active, fitness week sounds like the perfect time to get the ball rolling.

And speaking of fitness, comedian and talk show host Mo'Nique recently shared her weight loss goals and workout plan with Black Voices. It includes waking up at 5:30am five times a week to workout with a trainer for an hour of exercise that includes boxing, football and weight training. She also tries not to eat after 8pm.

Although Mo' currently fluctuates between 211 and 206 pounds, she says she'd like to get smaller. “I want to get to 180. That's an amazing weight for me. I'm still a thick girl but it's a healthy weight,” she tells BV. “”I love the way that shape is shaping up. Not that it's all the way I want it to be but the way it's shaping up!”
