After declaring 2020 as "The Year Of Health" in which she would prioritise her wellbeing, it looks like Rebel Wilson has achieved her goal.

Last week, the Australian actress shared a series of photos from the set of her new movie Senior Year and fans noticed her slimmer frame.

In a recent interview with InStyle, the 41-year-old revealed that she has lost almost 30kg.

She told the magazine she wished she had started to focus on her health earlier on.

"Now that I know I can do it, sometimes I feel sad that I didn't do it earlier. Maybe I should have tried when I was 30, not 40. But everybody's journey is different, and it's not a race or competition," she said.

Wilson also added that she has always struggled with weight issues and the reason for documenting her journey on Instagram is to inspire others.

"Obviously, I have access to some amazing high-tech treatments, but what I learned is it’s really the little things that I do every day that make a difference. Like today, I went for a walk at Griffith Park [in Los Angeles] and that's free. Anyone can go on walks and drink more water and do little, consistent things that’ll improve their lives. It's not too late to start, no matter what age you are," she told InStyle.

As for her inspiration, Wilson said she look to actor Mark Wahlberg.

"I watched the Mark Wahlberg docuseries [Wahl Street] and saw how he gets up and trains every morning and manages his time.

"I was like, 'That's similar to what I’ve been doing.' Although I don't want to get up at 4am like Mark. I do have to get up at 6am though."

Apart from sharing her weight loss journey with her 9.8 million fans, Wilson also clues them in on her fertility plan.

In December 2020, Wilson revealed her decision to freeze her eggs. Unfortunately, she shared a devastating news with fans in early May.

"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 universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn't make sense ... but I hope there's light about to shine through all the dark clouds," she wrote.
