Tyler Perry posts photo of his buff body on the beach

Tyler Perry's new movie might need to be "Madea Goes To the Gym and Looks Amazing."

Not only does he look great but feels great about taking care of his health.

The Atlanta entertainment mogul posted a photo showing the results of his diet and exercise regimen with this inspiration message: "I'm 18 lbs away from my goal. I hope I don't blow it this holiday season. Gonna try to stay on it. It's hard as heck to lose weight after 40, but it's so worth it. It keeps the doctor away. Don't let anything keep you from being healthy and strong. I wish my mother had fought back. She turned diabetic at 40 and died at 64. Don't let that be you!! Fight back!!"
