Rebel Wilson has been in her “Year of Health” for two years, but shows no signs of slowing down.
On Saturday, the Australian actress, who is said to have lost around 77 pounds since committing to a new diet and exercise regimen in 2020, shared a photo of herself in workout mode. In it, the 41-year-old Bridesmaids Star wears a jade green sports bra paired with matching leggings and pink sneakers as she leans over the camera, her hair pulled back into a high ponytail.
“Rebel Rising,” Wilson captioned the photo, adding a winking emoji and the hashtag # 2022.
The photo received praise from fans and famous friends, including Mindy Kaling, who called Wilson “beautiful” and Rosie O’Donnell, who said she looked “fantastic.”
While Wilson has shared that she started her health journey hoping to improve her fertility on the advice of a doctor, she has since said her path to motherhood is “still unclear.”
“I have been going through a fertility journey for the past two years and I hope that at some point I can have a family of my own,” she told Daily telegraph‘s Stellar magazine in October. But it is not yet clear if that will be the case. I feel like [it’s] It is not over yet. It’s kind of an emotional roller coaster. But I have done everything possible, so whatever it is, it will be ”.
Wilson also spoke to the Australian publication about the public “so obsessed” with his transformation. But he reiterated his earlier comments about focusing not on having a certain weight, but on stopping “using food to numb my emotions.”
“It’s not about having a certain size or body weight or anything,” he said. “It’s just about loving yourself and loving the journey you’re on. And for me, the women that I think are the most beautiful are the ones who take their own power.”
Last month, the Perfect tone The actress also revealed that her own team was wary of her weight loss.
“I got a lot of pushback from my own team here in Hollywood when I said, ‘Okay, I’m going to make this year healthy. I feel like I’m really going to transform myself physically and change my life.’ And they said, ‘Why? Why would you want to do that? ‘ “Wilson recalled during an interview with the BBC. “Because I was making millions of dollars being the funny fat girl and being that person.”
She added: “I was still very confident in being bigger and you know she loved me. I was rocking a red carpet and was probably twice the size and sometimes triple the weight of other actresses, but I still felt confident about that. But I knew Deep down, some of the emotional eating behaviors I was doing were unhealthy, like I didn’t need a tub of ice cream every night … That was me, a kind of numbing of emotions using food, which wasn’t the healthiest. “
