Gabourey Sidibe is now at a place where she is more than confident about her body. The ‘Empire’ star is opening up about her weight loss surgery in an exclusive interview with People.
In her new memoir, “This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare,” she details how she battled depression, anxiety, bulimia, and also talks about her secret weight loss surgery.
She tells People that after she became diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, she decided to get the laproscopic bariatric 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. I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”
We would like to wish good luck to Gabbie on her weight loss journey!
