Rebel Wilson, 40, has recently opened up about her weight loss journey, revealing she has lost around 40 lbs.
During Tuesday’s appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, Wilson revealed that she feels “so much healthier” after losing 40 lbs. since she made the decision to change her lifestyle.
The Pitch Perfect star said, “For the last few years, I’ve been theme-ing my years. So I had the ‘Year of Fun,’ last year I had the ‘Year of Love,’ and this year it’s gonna be the ‘Year of Health’ because I turned 40 this year in March.”
“I never really focused on my health, which was probably obvious,” she continued. “I was going all around the world jet-setting everywhere and eating a ton of sugar. That was kind of my vice. I have a very sweet tooth. I love desserts.”
Wilson wanted to take a holistic approach this time so she also started focusing on her mental health.
She explained, “I think what I really suffered from was emotional eating and dealing with the stress of becoming famous internationally. There is a lot of stress that comes with it, and I guess my way of dealing with it was just eating donuts. So I was working on the mental side of things of ‘Why was I not doing that? Why was I not valuing myself and having better self-worth?’”
Wilson revealed that her past diets were rich in carbs so it was tough for her to hit the nutritional goals.
She said, “It was delicious, but for my body type, I needed to eat a lot more protein.”
Wilson has lost 40 lbs. but she does “want to lose a few more.” She said, “I love my curves and stuff. I don’t think I’ll ever go too skinny, but I feel so much healthier.”
“I feel more in control,” the comedian continued. “I get to produce movies now — which is amazing — and have more control over the content. Everything seems to be coming together. Maybe I was a late bloomer or something, but I’m slowly getting it together.”
Last month, Wilson wrote on Instagram, “This week was super busy but I got up super early 3 times (6am) and went on a hike…even did a couple of 100m sprints to get the heart rate even higher (although my ‘sprint’ is probably someone else’s ‘slow jog’) but I felt proud of myself and now only 3kg’s away from my goal weight!” The article originally appeared on PEOPLE.
