Rebel Wilson leaves her Instagram followers stunned with a jaw-dropping photo of her new physique in an eye-catching red swimsuit.
The Australian actress posted a photo of herself standing on a leafless tree, surrounded by a body of clear blue water at a private island. She added an inspiring caption to the stunning picture,
“It’s never too late to improve yourself – to improve your health, your heart, your happiness, your harmony. For everyone out there just trying to be a lil bit better this week: go for it! Every bit counts. Every effort is worth it. You’re worth it.”
She concluded with a hashtag “RebelsIsland” and photo credits to her friend and photographer, Laurie Bailey.
Her Life-changing Weight Loss Plan
The comedian had termed 2020 her “year of health” and set a personal goal of dropping her body weight down to 165 lbs.
In a previous interview with PEOPLE, the “Pitch Perfect” star said she was “probably eating 3,000 calories most days” before she began her weight loss journey.

Things changed after Wilson attended a health-oriented resort in Austria.
At the resort, the 41-year-old learned to up her protein intake, lower her carb consumption while maintaining an “overall balance” and making room for the occasional “In-N-Out” burger.
The star’s healthier mindset worked for her as she claimed that she had not “gained any weight back” for the first time.
Wilson said she worked heavily on her emotional side, as she had never unpacked what she suffered from.
Her Father’s Passing
In August 2021, The Blast reported that the 41-year-old shared a reminder of what she looked like at her ‘unhealthiest.’
The “How To Be Single” artist told fans how she got to that place when her father passed away.
Losing her father to a heart attack put Wilson in such a sad time. “I didn’t think highly of myself and wasn’t valuing myself how I should have,” she explained.
“I know that I normally post flattering photos of myself…but found this old photo in my emails …I remember this was when I was at my most unhealthiest – being overweight and indulging way too much with junk food [sic]”.
The “Bridesmaids” actress said she can “look back now at that girl” and be “so proud of what she’s become and achieved.”
Reason For Her Drastic Change
The Blast also shared the reason behind Wilson’s 65-pound weight loss and her healthier lifestyle in July.
During a candid Instagram Q&A session held by “The Hustle” star, a fan asked for the reason behind her positive changes.
Wilson credited it to when she first began looking into fertility, and a doctor mentioned she would have a “much better chance” if she were healthier.
The physician’s advice encouraged the “Isn’t It Romantic” actress to shed excess weight and have a “better chance” of freezing quality eggs.
“It was more thinking of a future mini-me, really,” she added. Wilson’s hard work has paid off as she looks her healthiest and happiest yet.
