Gabourey Sidibe, most known for portraying the title character in Lee Daniels' 2009 film Precious, recently took to Instagram to put her impressive weight loss on full display.
Sidibe posted the video with the caption: "Is it to early in the morning for selfies with a Mayfair filter?"
The 33-year-old actress' weight loss is extremely admirable, but her determination to accept her body the way it is makes her even more special. In 2009, she told Oprah during an interview, "My first diet started when I was six-years-old." Sidibe continued, "I’ve never been a small girl. 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."
