Gabourey Sidibe Opens Up About Undergoing Weight-Loss Surgery


The actress knows that her weight-loss journey did not end with the surgery.

The 33-year-old NY native said she battled depression, anxiety and bulimia for most of her life as she struggled with her weight.

Although she has not revealed exactly how much weight she has lost, Gabourey has slimmed down dramatically and continues to do so. Unfortunately at the time she was suffering from bulimia which could complicate the surgery, so a therapist suggested she wait a year or two before trying to have the surgery again.

A diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes apparently helped Sidibe make up her mind about getting laparoscopic bariatric surgery in May.

Sidibe tried to shed weight naturally for more than a decade. I did it so I can walk around comfortable in heels. I want to not be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs. As Radar reported, she has lashed out over fat-shamers online. "Remember when [screenwriter] Diablo Cody's Juno was coming out, and people were like, 'She's an ex-stripper'?"

Blue Jays reliever TJ House hit in head, taken away in ambulance
Hicks' drive caught House in the head, or possibly face, with the ball caroming 30 or more feet skyward. He played for Cleveland for parts of the past three seasons, compiling a record of 5-7 with a 4.44 ERA.

Gabourey Sidibe's significant weight loss is not your imagination. The New York City native got the job in her early twenties after she dropped out of college to focus on her mental health and attend therapy, having battled depression, anxiety and bulimia since she was a teenager.

"I'm not very superficial". Sidibe says. "But I felt too stupid to say it". "I'm more into personality".

Though she already looks awesome, Sidibe has a goal weight but is not revealing the number. The actress also said she loves her body now.

While the star hasn't worked in phone sex for nearly a decade, she recently experienced a full-circle moment.

In excerpts given exclusively to PEOPLE, and via an interview, the 33-year-old revealed this information.

I was in a war with my body.

"I wasn't just some phone whore", she says.

While the actor preaches the benefits of a period of promiscuity, she is quick to add a disclaimer for anyone looking to follow her advice. "Can you not? Because that's just one part of her life". "And don't blame any of your venereal diseases on me!"
