Chile, I don’t give a good got damn what nobody says. Gabourey Sidibe was not happy with herself being that big nor did she love her body. Now did she adapt to love herself unconditionally, sure thing… But loving her old body, not so much. Gabourey, much like Mo’Nique are now singing a different tune after they have both lost weight. Remember how Mo’Nique use to go on and on about bing a big girl and loving it? That’s because she had no damn choice. She was stuck in her body and couldn’t figure out a way to get out of it. After Mo’Nique shed a few pounds, no she is damn near an LA Fitness spokesperson. Mo’Nique, much like Gabby are citing health scares as the reason why they committed to losing the weight. As if neither of them were unaware that they were unhealthy when they were boasting about “loving their bodies”.
No tea no shade, I don’t want to see Gabourey Side as a size 6. Quiet as its kept, it will most likely end her career if she gets that small. She’d then be forced to compete with all the other actress in that weight class, and I’m not necessarily sure that her acting skills are up to par with those girls. Nonetheless, in her current weight class, Gabby is the queen of her domain. No tea no shade, but Gabby’s size is part of her appeal. So I;m glad that she opted for the surgery to help her manage her weight, but let’s hope all she is doing is managing it and not obliterating it.
In her new book. Gabby says it was she and her brother’s diagnosis with type 2 diabetes that led her to make the decision to have surgery once and for all. She let’s it be known that over the years she has tried to lose weight the traditional way and it just didn’t work.
“There’s nothing ugly about me. Anyone trying to convince me that I am — and it’s usually me — is wasting her time,” she says. “I was in a war with my body for a long time. If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent so many years hating myself. But I love my body now.
“It has taken me years to realize that what I was born with is all beautiful,” she writes in her book. “I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels. I want to do a cartwheel. I want not to be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs.
