In 2020, Rebel Wilson said she started Year of Health in order to lose weight, sharing updates on Instagram. She also revealed that she started the Year of Health with her fertility in mind.
At the time, the 41-year-old actress said on Australia’s morning show, Sunrise, “I was thinking about fertility and having good quality eggs in the bank, so I was like, ‘Okay, I’m going to do this, I’m going to get healthy.’”
Wilson said that the process changed her health as well as her life. She said, “It’s changed dramatically I think. I was going through a fertility journey, and it was better if I was healthier, and I kind of wanted to be healthier anyway.”
The Pitch Perfect star has spoken about her journey with fertility before. In December, she said on an Instagram Live that she had started freezing her eggs, adding, “If that’s something that interests you, it’s a pretty good time to do it.”
In May, Wilson gave a hint about her fertility issues, sharing, “I got some bad news today and didn’t have anyone to share it with…but I guess I gotta tell someone. To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya.”
The comedian told Sunrise that she has even noticed little changes in how she feels, stating that she feels her health has improved overall as a result.
In the past, Wilson said that her feet would become sore at the end of a long day on a movie set so she would need to put them up. “Now I don’t have that kind of thing happening,” she explained.
Calling the results “kind of remarkable,” she said, “I’m proud of myself for doing it and also maintaining it this year even though now I’m back to work filming movies.”
Wilson went on to say that she started her Year of Health journey in January 2020 by walking more and adjusting her diet.
She said at the time, “I put on the athleisure and went out for a walk, deliberately hydrating on the couch right now and trying to avoid the sugar and junk food which is going to be hard after the holidays I’ve just had but I’m going to do it! Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?”
