Rebel Wilson smashes her goal weight with a month to spare
Rebel Wilson has ended a major “year of health” a month early, announcing she has marked an impressive milestone.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the 40-year-old actress said she reached her goal weight of 75 kgs with a month to spare.
“Hit my goal weight with one month to spare!” Wilson posted her story along with a photo of a scale, which read 74.6kg.
“Even though it’s not about a weight number, it’s about being healthy, I needed a tangible measurement to have as a goal and that was 75kg’s.”
Wilson started her health journey in January and has been documenting her experience on social media ever since.
“I wanna go live on Insta on Tuesday night when I’m back in US to share stuff with you guys and thank everyone for their support,” Wilson stated over the weekend.
Earlier this month, Wilson told People she consumed about 3000 calories per day prior to her lifestyle change.
“Before I was probably eating 3000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry,” she said.
“So, I’ve really changed to eating a high-protein diet, which is challenging because I didn’t used to eat a lot of meat.”
Appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show earlier this month, Wilson said that turning 40 helped shift her perspective.
She added that “stress” led her to reach for sugary treats too often.
“I think what I mainly suffered from was emotional eating and dealing with the stress of becoming famous internationally – there is a lot of stressful stuff that comes with it – and I guess my way of dealing with it was eating doughnuts.
“So I was working on the mental side of things and thinking why was I doing that? And why wasn’t I valuing myself and having better self-worth?”
Wilson’s new diet consists of fish, salmon, and chicken breast, admitting she also allows herself to indulge every so often.
“It doesn’t mean every week is a healthy week,” Wilson said.
“Some weeks are just write offs, and there’s nothing you can do about that.”
