Precious actress Gabourey Sidibe unveiled her new body, after losing more than 150 pounds.

The beautiful actress used to weigh more than 320 pounds, now she's down to below 200 - and she's reportedly wearing size 8 clothes.

According to multiple reports, Gabourey underwent stomach surgery to achieve the dramatic weight loss. But that shouldn't minimize how spectacular her weight loss has been.

Here's a pic of what Gabby looked like before the weight loss:


And this is her now:


With Gabby's new weight loss, she's now considered "skinny" by most American standards.

A recent study published in the International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology, and Education revealed, "The average size of an American woman is now between 16 to 18, which is an increase from 10-year-old data that indicated most women in the U.S. were a size 14."

Now that Gabby is a size 8 - she's 4 to 5 sizes smaller than the average woman.

But it is not just a physical transformation. Her weight loss has helped her fight type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, and bulimia. Gaby’s weight loss story is truly inspiring, and if you are struggling with your weight, you need to read this. Because you (or anyone) can win against an unhealthy lifestyle and achieve what others think you can’t.

She was born on 6th May 1983 in Brooklyn, New York. Her mother, Alice Tan Ridley, is a gospel and American R&B singer, and her father, Ibnou Sidibe, is a cab driver. Gaby grew up with her aunt and attended City College of New York and Mercy College. Before joining the entertainment industry, she worked as a receptionist at the Fresh Air Fund.
