Oscar-winning actress Mo’Nique has gotten serious about her health, dropping 80 pounds and documenting her weight loss journey on Twitter.

The 45-year-old “Precious” actress has been posting snapshots from her grueling workouts, along with motivational messages to her thousands of followers, almost daily on Twitter.

“Take that fighting spirit inside of you and knock out that quitting spirit. Fight for your life. NO PAIN NO GAIN. :-),” she wrote today.

“I tweet every morning,” she said in an interview earlier this week with New York radio station Hot 97. “Because I want women to see — especially us big women — that you don’t have to let them cut you and suck it out. You don’t have to let them staple you up. You don’t have to let them give you a pill. You don’t have to let them put a band around your organs.”
