Celebrity Weight Loss, Gabourey Sidibe

Gabourey Sidibe: “I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny”

Untitled-1-1 - Gabourey Sidibe: "I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don't get skinny"

On opting for a weight loss surgery last May:

My surgeon said they 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!

On loving her new figure:

I was in a war with my body.  If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent some many years hating myself. But I love my body now. There’s nothing ugly about me.

On not wanting to be skinny:

I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny. If I could lose enough weight just to be a little chubby I would be over the moon! My beauty doesn’t come from a mirror, never has never will.

On being ready to date:

I am ready to receive a gentleman caller.

… says 33 year-old Gabourey.

I used to hate mirror selfies. Now I do them everyday. I'm just too black and fine! I can't help it! ✊🏿👸🏿✊🏿

She looks much healthier, I hope she feels healthier. That dark green dress looks really great on her.

Good for her and great style, but I don’t get what’s the point of these comments. I think she’s contradicting herself a little.

Yeah, she should be proud of her weight loss and health goals vs. and underhanded negative comment toward “skinny” girls. It’s possible her weight was a comfort though, and it’s just scary to think she is losing that protection?

I don’t know if protection, but maybe it was ingrained in her identity, it might feel scary to lose something you used to have.

That makes more sense than “my beauty doesn’t come from a mirror”, the way she said it implied that’s how skinny people think and she’s all above that. Girl, you do care. Why you have all those mirror selfies on IG, then?

She looks absolutely stunning in the yellow dress. Not such a fan of the hair, but she looks great still.

This lady is a hypocrite Just like every other fat woman I remember her saying how happy she feels in her body and not willing to change a thing about it

I’m glad she finally admitted to herself that being this obese isn’t healthy. Not sure if surgery was the best way to go about losing weight though, it’s quite a drastic measure.

As a doctor I can actually tell you that obesity IS qualified a s a disease, and some people struggling with their weight can go on weight loss surgery. Before, they have to lose as much weight as possible to show that they will maintain a healthy lifestyle (or at least weight loss behavior) and of course they go through many check ups, including psychologist… the “beautiful” thing about bariatric surgery is that it indeed does change many hormones crucial for the hunger-satiety sensations that are TOTALLY out of whack in obese patients. And it even cures diabetes type 2!… Read more »

I am honestly stunned to see another doc reading this guiltiest of pleasures blog. One drawback of surgery that you did not mention a propensity for alcoholism. I think physiological changes may play a role, but for many, it is shifting an addiction to food to an addiction to something else. The psychological eval you mentioned is critical.

Good for her. On both sides, she will receive s~~~ flinging at her…from obese women who call her a “traitor” to the normal sized/skinnier ones calling her a hypocrite for waking up and realizing her health is more important than her image. Fu*k the haters, she looks great already in comparison to her prior size and seems to have a healthy attitude and confidence about herself, while staying realistic. I like her, she’s funny, and she is so young. It is good to see her take charge of her health now rather than later.

GO GABOUREY!

Good for her to start taking steps to losing weight, mostly for her health. However it does sound like she is contradicting herself. I really don’t agree with the surgery approach though as the eating disorder is what really needs to be resolved. I know a few people who went though this, they had a bypass, a band, etc., they started losing a great amount of weight. But because it didn’t resolve the eating disorder (eating way too much), they stretched out their stomach again and they went right back to their original weight. One person I know would eat… Read more »

She contradicts herself quite a lot here. First she says she “hated herself”, then her “beauty never came from a mirror”. She clearly had and still has a lot of self-esteem issues, but who wouldn’t, being that size? I don’t believe anyone can be truly 100% comfortable with themselves looking like that. They might say so, but once they lose the weight they’ll tell a different story. Anyway, good for her for making a change. I can see beauty in obese people, but she was truly massive and even her face looked distorted, it was like she was this enourmous… Read more »

There are reasons other than appearance that make obesity difficult. When she hated her body, she may have hated being short of breath, sweaty, having difficulty wiping her butt, snoring, yeast infections in fat folds, fitting in chairs… so many reasons she could have hated her body without caring much about the mirror. I’m not seeing the contradiction here.

Lol her statements and her fear of being “skinny” are so ridiculous. First off, she will never be “skinny” cuz she clearly doesn’t have the discipline to eat right or exercise. Second, I wonder what her definition of “skinny” is…to her it might be skewed because she is and has been sooooo big for so long that she probably confuses being “skinny” with being healthy. Third, she’s obviously embraced this “it’s ok to be fat and love yourself” BS cuz she’s built her career and fan base around that mantra so she’s afraid to get healthy because her career might… Read more »

She definitely looks heaps better. People might be confused why she doesn’t want to get “skinny” even if she could, but a lot of your identity is probably linked to how you look and also yes – even though you shouldn’t accuse someone overweight for being gluttonous or lazy – our life choices reflect on our bodies. If she’s a “foodie” and her body image identity is of a “big girl”, then she can be that but just in a healthy way.
