Comedian/actress Mo'Nique usually refers to herself as "fat and fabulous." In Touch thinks she needs to revise her statement now that she's lost 40 pounds. "I decided that I had to get some of that off me," says Mo'Nique, who tipped the scales at 262 at one time. And now she wants to set the record straight about the rumors that she underwent gastric-bypass surgery. "I'm so scared of needles," she says about why she opted to hit the gym and start dieting - including cutting out red meat - instead of going under the knife. "This was truly making the commitment to watch what I eat and commit to working out."
