Tyler Perry has been in the gym and has the results to prove it. 

On Sunday he posted a photo of himself on Facebook, where he's at the beach, flexing his muscles and a six-pack that looks like it'll be super evident any day now.

Perry made note of how it's probably the worst time of year to try to get into shape, seeing as how the holiday season calls for family gatherings, and where there are gatherings, there is delicious food. 

"I'm 18 lbs away from my goal. I hope I don't blow it this holiday season. Gonna try to stay on it," Perry said in the caption.

Perry opened up about how his mother was diagnosed with diabetes at age 40 and died at 64. "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," he said.
