Actress and comedian Gabby Sidibe has been showcasing her slimmed-down look on Instagram lately and fans are cheering the “Empire” star on on her quest to lose more weight.
In 2009, Sidibe told Oprah that she’s been trying to control her weight with dieting since she was six years old, but that she eventually accepted her body and embraced her natural beauty: “One day I had to sit down with myself and 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.”
Despite her healthy self-esteem, the 33-year-old is still striving to get healthier and she’s getting a lot of support on social media. Check fans’ positive messages for Gabby below:
