Gabourey Sidibe is working hard and shedding the pounds, and she is fighting with her trainer while at it.
The Empire actress is smart, beautiful, unapologetic, and a real comedian.
Which is why not many people were surprised by her latest post on social media about getting “physical” with her trainer.
Miss Sidibe shared a photo in workout gear at the gym looking slim.
She used the caption to say that she beat her trainer because they disagreed with the description of the word push-up.
The Oscar nominee jokingly wrote: “My trainer and I got into a fight about what counts as a push-up. It got physical. Ps, I did not wear my Jordan’s to the gym. That is correct, yes?”
Fans laughed at Sidibe’s silly joke and explained that they hate their trainers too.
One person wrote: “Get it mama; you inspire me! Beautiful, smart and doing your thing! Ignore these hateful basics!!”
Another shared: “Ok, she is really inspiring me to really get it together. Good for her..loving yourself and being healthy go hand in and.Lol … girl leave them. Jays at home so they know you ain’t play.”
A third commenter claimed: “Get it Gabby girl!!!! I am so proud of you, and you are doing an outstanding job coming down Mamacita!!! This time next year you are going to be a force not to be reckoned with hehehe……..”
In her new memoir, This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare, Sidibe said after getting laproscopic bariatric surgery, she has been working out and eating right to stay in shape.
She wrote: “The surgery was not the easy way out. I was not cheating by getting it done. I would not have been able to lose as much as I have lost without it.It has taken me years to realize that what I was born with is all beautiful. I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels. I want to do a cartwheel. I want not to be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs.”
She added: “I have a goal right now, and I am almost there.And then once I have got it, I will set another. But my starting weight and my goal weight, they are personal. If too many people are involved, I will shut down.”
Sidibe is back at work filming the new episodes of Empire.
