The "Empired" actress has enjoyed a successful career ever since but has struggled with her weight continuously over the years. 

In Sibide's 2017 memoir, "This is just my face: Try not to stare," she revealed that her brother has Type 2 diabetes, and she didn't want the same to happen to her.

Gabby continued by explaining that having the surgery wasn't the easy way out for and that she wasn't cheating by getting it done, but she believes she would not have been able to lose as much as she did, without the surgery.
