"Try Not to Stare" - The Transformation of Sidibe (from "Precious")
Ran across this interesting article today .. What a story .. Oscar-Nominated Actress Gabourey Sidibe has been on (and off) diets since the age of SIX ... She also suffered from Bulimia .. She made the decision a couple of years or so ago, after learning she had Type II Diabetes, to have V.S.G., as well as to write her memoirs about her weight issue experience, "This is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare" . I get a kick out of her talking about how she doesn't exactly care for people complimenting her on her WLS decision - 'they should compliment me then every time I pee, or burp" ..
The story doesn't mention what Sidibe's starting or ending weights were, or how much weight she lost, btw, but she still looks a lot better than before ..
Frank talk about the DS / "All I ever wanted to be was thin, like that Rolling Stones dude ... "

An interesting article once you got past all the ads and "Click for next page".
I find it funny that people will be judgemental about health decisions that another person may make. She is wonderful for sharing a bit of her story. I really enjoy reading the Before and Journey articles anyone is willing to share. Unbelievable that she started at the age of 6. I look forward to seeing more of her work!
