Gabourey 33, had the surgery in May of 2016 and said that “I Love My Body Now” after struggling with depression, anxiety and bulimia. Gabourey recently wrote her first memoir “This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare.” She wrote that “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,” and added. “The surgery wasn’t the easy way out,” and “I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”

Gabourey’s whole lifestyle has changed since the surgery including teaming up with a nutritionist and getting a variety of exercise under the instruction of a trainer. Swimming and riding a tricycle on the set of her current endeavor, “Empire” keeps her busy and she explained “I have a goal right now, and I’m almost there,” she continued. “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.”

Congratulations Ms. Sidibe!
