Gabby Sidibe Keeps It Real After Weight Loss

March 15, 2017

Have I ever mentioned how much I admire Gabby Sidibe? Her bubbly personality has the ability to make the grouchiest grouch smile! You gotta love her!  After her success on the blockbuster film PRECIOUS, many people thought that she wouldn't obtain much work after playing that role because of her weight and dark skin. However, she continues to grab success by the reigns as she continues to get role after role.  

Gabourey Sidibe recently revealed that she had a weight-loss procedure last May and she hasn’t been shy about flaunting her physique on social media. She recently spoke to People magazine about her decision to get laparoscopic bariatric surgery after she and her brother were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. She said, "I just didn't want to worry. I truly didn't want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes. I genuinely (would) worry all the time about losing my toes."

She is preparing to publish her memoir titled, "This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare" where she talks about her struggle with anxiety, depression and bulimia.

As someone who has also suffered from anxiety and depression after my cancer diagnosis, I can appreciate her willingness to be transparent and cannot wait to purchase her book which will be released in May.  GO GABBY!

I used to hate mirror selfies. Now I do them everyday. I'm just too black and fine! I can't help it! ✊------✊--
