One of the stars of Empire, Gabourey Sidibe, finally found the courage to talk about her amazing transformation. If you are watching this TV Show, you probably noticed how Gabby was shrinking down for the past few months or so.
Lots of fake news were circling around regarding her weight loss transformation. However, she never talked about it letting people guess what happened. In a recent interview with People, Gabourey Sidibe was talking about her new memoir “This is just My Face.” She revealed some interesting information regarding her weight loss, surgery, and diagnosis she was keeping secret for the past couple of months.
According to People:
“I just didn’t want to worry,” Sidibe, 33, tells PEOPLE of her decision to get laparoscopic bariatric surgery after she and her older brother Ahmed, 34, were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. “It’s just, 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 looks amazing. Check her out now after her weight loss struggle and surgery:
“My surgeon said they’d cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it! My lifelong relationship with food had to change,” she writes in her wise, witty and unapologetic memoir, out in May.
“The surgery wasn’t the easy way out,” she says. “I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”
“It has taken me years to realize that what I was born with is all beautiful,” she writes in her book. “I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels. That’s why I want to do a cartwheel. I want not to be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs.”
“I have a goal right now, and I’m almost there,” she says. “And then once I’ve got it, I’ll set another. But my starting weight and my goal weight, they’re personal. If too many people are involved, I’ll shut down.”
I know I’m beautiful in my current face and my current body. What I don’t know about is the next body,” she writes her in This Is Just My Face. “I admit it, I hope to God I don’t get skinny. If I could lose enough to just be a little chubby, I’ll be over the moon! Will I still be beautiful then? S—. Probably. My beauty doesn’t come from a mirror. It never will.”
“There’s nothing ugly about me. Anyone trying to convince me that I am — and it’s usually me — is wasting her time,” she says. “I was in a war with my body for a long time. If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent so many years hating myself. But I love my body now.
That’s her whole interview for the People regarding her weight loss transformation, surgery, and her upcoming goals.
We are all here for you Gabby. Let the world know that you are a strong, beautiful, and independent lady who deserves all kinds of respect.
