Rebel Wilson Reveals the Real Reason Why She Decided to Drop the Weight

Entertainment Tonight

There are lots of reasons people want to lose weight. It could be that you want to look a certain way. Or maybe it’s that you don’t have energy and want to be able to chase your kids around. Maybe it’s because you simply have a goal weight in mind that you want to be at.

But for Australian actress Rebel Wilson, it was different. The funny woman is known for her comedic roles in iconic movies like “Bridesmaids” and “Pitch Perfect,” and she cracks us up every time we see her. And while she seems happy on the outside, something inside was starting to really bother her, specifically after a trip to the doctor.

The thing is, Rebel was always content with her weight, even if she wasn’t at the perfect number on the scale. However, it was a doctor’s comment that set her off in terms of getting healthier.

“It first started when I was looking into fertility stuff and the doctor was like, ‘Well, you’d have a much better chance if you were healthier,” she stated in a recent Instagram Live.

“That’s kind of what started it, that if I lost some excess weight that it would give me a better chance for freezing eggs and having the eggs be a better quality,” she explained. “It wasn’t even really myself, it was more thinking of a future mini-me, really.”

Realizing that her weight could potentially affect her ability to have kids, Wilson set off on a journey of health. In fact, she even coined of 2020 her “Year of Health.” While most people spent the year eating and being lazy through the quarantine, Wilson spent it eating better and beginning a fitness journey.

The actress is now down a whopping 65 pounds and feels better than ever. Her only regret is just not starting sooner!

Now that I know I can do it, sometimes I feel sad that I didn’t do it earlier,” she told InStyle in May. “Maybe I should have tried when I was 30, not 40.”

Well, we say what’s done is done, and she’s looking pretty amazing! You won’t believe your eyes when you see her.
