Gabourey Sidibe Has Lost Weight and She Looks AMAZING

By  |  | 

Gabourey Sidibe sure knows how to rock our world!

The great actress and star of the hit movie “Precious” has been the subject of many whispers and talks…


She is embracing a new transformation – a physical one but still very relevant nonetheless.

The 33 year old actress underwent weight loss surgery in 2016 and now she is opening up about her experience and her path to a healthier figure



In her new book, the memoir “This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare”, she explains how this transformation came with a mix of depression, anxiety and bulimia…

Her main reason for getting weight loss surgery was the fear of having Diabetes Type-2 – her brother was diagnosed with it…

“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.”

So she went for surgery!

“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.”

“The surgery wasn’t the easy way out. I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”

As you can see in these before and after pictures, she is looking amazing – and dare we say she looks happier and more radiant? It sure seems like it!

Besides the surgery, Sidibe is following a diet and a workout programme – it’s a job never finished.

“ 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.”

Congrats to Gabourey for her new found balance!
