“So I’m glad that I finally realized that the surgery wasn’t the easy way out,” Sidibe admitted. “I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without the surgery. I spent years trying to lose this much weight, and I didn’t do it. I wish I’d done it sooner.”

Sidibe revealed that her weight problems began when she was young. “The bulimia stuck around for about three years,” she wrote in This Is Just My Face. “Throwing up made me feel high. I felt a release around my head like a halo that made me feel lighter physically and emotionally.”
