Gabby Sidibe from 'Empire' Shows off Slimmer Curves in Top & Leggings as She Poses in Gym after Weight Loss
"Empire" actress, Gabourey Sidibe, recently rocked social media with more updates on her incredible weight loss. The star showed off her slimmer curves, wearing a top and leggings.
Gabourey Sidibe sent pleasant shockwaves across the net recently when she took to Instagram to flaunt her gorgeous slimmer body.
The "Precious" actress reportedly weighed 300 pounds and as now allegedly lost close to 150 pounds after her surgery.
In her latest update, the actress shared a photo of herself at the gym, kneeling on a large orange ball, wearing a confident look that spoke volumes on how she felt about her body now. The caption read:
"Balls and Knees and Magic."
In her memoir, "This Is Just My Face," Gabourey Sidibe opened up about her journey to fitness and the circumstances that brought about it.
In the book, she explained that she underwent laparoscopic bariatric surgery in March 2017 after she'd tried unsuccessfully to lose weight naturally. However, according to People, that was not the only reason why she went under the blade.
The 36-year-old actress has reportedly gone public with her relationship with Brandon Frankel.
Herself and her brother Ahmed were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Sidibe also confessed that she'd been bullied often and made to feel ugly all her life. This prompted her decision to go under the knife.
According to Gabby, the surgery was not her way of cheating and taking the easy way out as she adamantly stated in the memoir that she had tried everything she could, and surgery was her last option.
However, now that she's all curves and glam, Gabourey has requested to be recognized and respected for her talent and not her curves.
During an interview, she spoke out against people who often complimented her on shedding pounds post-op. Sidibe explained how her battle with weight loss had been a personal pursuit since undergoing surgery in May last year.
And according to the actress, well-meaning comments concerning her loss of weight or about her body in general, made her feel "weird." Gabby's health-life is not the only aspect of her life undergoing growth. Her love life is blossoming too.
The 36-year-old actress has reportedly gone public with her relationship with Brandon Frankel. Frankel allegedly works in the entertainment industry doing marketing and branding.

Here’s to 2020- this past year was one of the toughest, but also one of the most rewarding and fulfilling of my life all at the same time! I’m truly thankful for my close family, friends, associates past and present...and most of all, for THIS Queen right here. You’re a ball of sunshine, so generous and giving of your time and love- and your excitement and passion for life and people/things you love truly lights up my heart. You’ve taught me so much about life, myself, and the world that is truly invaluable. You make me push myself to be a better me, even though you probably don’t even realize you are. I love you more and more every single day- which seems impossible, but continually amazes me. Here’s to 2020- and thank you for loving me so unconditionally. I love being your forever-Dork. ❤️❤️❤️
And now it's a new year, and their love only seems to be getting stronger as the couple was seen exchanging heartfelt messages via social media on new year's eve.
