Gabourey Sidibe Continues to Show Off Incredible Weight Loss in New Photo

After actress Gabourey Sidibe posted a photo of her slimmer self a month ago, the “Empire” star continues to make progress in her weight loss journey.

In a photo she tweeted Oct. 2, the star posed in nothing but a t-shirt and sneakers.

“I don’t care if you think my knees are ashy,” she wrote in the post.

But fans didn’t focus on Sidibe’s knees. They eagerly praised the new look.

Timmura wrote a straightforward, enthusiastic response.

“You go, girl!” Daneisha M. wrote.

Tammy McFarlin shared some words of encouragement

And Katy Petti thought Sidibe was looking good.

The feedback comes after Sidibe became one of the newest spokesmodels for Lane Bryant.

As part of the fashion brand’s “#ThisBody Is Made to Shine” campaign, Sidibe joined “Orange Is The New Black” star Danielle Brooks and Sports Illustrated cover girl Ashley Graham in a sexy lingerie photo shoot.

Models Alessandra Garcia-Lorido and Candice Huffine also participated in the shoot.

In Sidibe’s photos, she is seen posing happily in a sheer, bust-baring number.

The campaign launched Sept. 26 and on the Lane Bryant website, Sidibe discussed how she banished her previous insecurities.

“I just directed my first film,” she said of her short movie, The Tale Of Four. “Six days ago I didn’t know that I could direct a film. Two months ago I didn’t know I wanted to. Forever ago I didn’t think I could do it. Now that I’ve done it, I know how little insecurities matter.”

After detailing that she used to think she couldn’t write a book, act or find happiness, Sidibe said she proved herself wrong.”

“Every time I declare I’m not good at something I’m immediately knocked down by the truth,” she said.
