Gabourey Sidibe, the actress who rose to fame in 2009 from “Precious,” also won a Golden Globe nomination. One of her biggest insecurities was her weight.
She underwent an operation in 2016 where she lost 200 pounds and now it is rumored that she wears measure 9.
In 2016 she was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. After discussing the problem with her brother she decided to do laparoscopic bariatric surgery.
In 2016 removed more than 50% of her stomach. “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, ”the Empire star wrote in her memoir.
“The surgery was not the easy way out,” she said. “I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it. ”
From the moment she underwent the operation she consulted with a nutritionist to change the way of feeding. Its purpose was defined.
In 2017, she spoke more openly about how she had lost the extra pounds. In addition, she spoke about depression, anxiety, and bulimia.
What the actress wants, in the end, is to feel beautiful. She only wants to walk comfortably when is in heels and not feel pain every time climbs the stairs.
We wish her to be fulfilled as soon as possible and to feel beautiful in her body.
