Rebel Wilson shares her pride in having improved her life after a “healthy year” in which she lost 77 pounds.
The “Pitch Perfect” star spoke on the Australian morning show “Sunrise” on Tuesday about how her weight loss over the past year, inspired by her efforts to get pregnant, has changed her life.
“It has changed dramatically, I think,” she said. “I was going through a fertility journey, and it was better if I was healthier, and I kind of wanted to be healthier anyway. I struggled a lot with emotional eating. Last year. , I had a huge transformation, I lost about 35 kilos (77 pounds) I think. It was really good. ”
Wilson, 41, told hosts Natalie Barr and David Koch that the improvement in his health was also evident during his last physical exam.
“I went to the doctor and had my annual checkup last week, and he said, ‘Oh my God, all your labs and blood tests are like the best they are. have ever been and you know, it’s just remarkable enough, ”she said. “I’m proud of myself for doing it and also for maintaining it this year, although now I’m back at work shooting movies.”
Wilson noted that when she worked long days on film sets before her weight loss, her feet would get “really sore” at the end of the workday and she would have to put them on the couch for relief.
“Now I don’t have that kind of thing going on,” she said.
She added that she also suffers from jet lag, but that it has been “much more manageable” over the past year.
“I guess I didn’t know I had a lot of inflammation in my body and stuff, but I didn’t really realize it because it was just my daily life,” she said. .
Wilson dubbed 2020 his “Year of Health” and has documented his journey from then to now on Instagram, including a photo last month with a motivational message for his fans.
She also stayed busy writing her new children’s book, “Bella the Brave” and filming “The Almond and the Seahorse” and Netflix cheerleading comedy “Senior Year” back to back. Throughout it all, she continued to focus on her health.
“I am proud to have improved my life for the better,” she said.
