What a transformation!
Walking down the red carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in Hollywood, actress Gabourey Sidibe showed of her amazing weight loss in a flattering teal frock.
Having reportedly shed almost 70kg, the Precious star says that she made a conscious decision to embrace her natural curves and hasn’t looked back.
‘My first diet started when I was six years old. I’ve never been a small girl,’ she told Oprah Winfrey in 2009.
‘One day I had to sit down with myself and I decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body… I got tired of feeling bad all the time. I got tired of hating myself.’
