In 2019, Rebel Wilson decided that 2020 was going to be a “Year of Health.” She embarked on a journey that was about health, not about numbers on a scale, yet she has truly transformed her physique.

Wilson didn’t start out thinking she wanted to lose weight. She was 100% okay with her body the way it was. However, someday she wants to have a baby, and a fertility doctor told her that if she dropped some pounds, she’d have a better chance of having higher quality eggs.

While Wilson was happy with her body pre-weight loss, it’s clear that she’s also very happy with the way she looks post-weight loss. She posts quite a few selfies on Instagram, and she’s gotten very comfortable in a swimsuit.

Wilson recently turned 40, and to celebrate her milestone birthday, she enjoyed a tropical getaway with friends. The party theme was “Shipwrecked Mermaid,” and in one post she’s leaning against a large inflatable seashell. In the captain, she wrote powerful and motivating words about how she has overcome so many things.

I feel like turning 40, I’ve weathered a lot of storms in my life (malaria, being kidnapped, being bullied, fertility struggles, emotional eating, overcoming shyness, having no money) but somehow I’ve managed to thrive, to find my inner ‘siren’…I encourage everyone out there to seek their inner ‘siren’.”

She went on to clarify what she means by that. 

“It’s not about looking a certain way or being a certain size, it’s about embracing your unique beauty, loving yourself, finding your purpose and then feeling yourself to the MAX!”

Wilson wasn’t done with the inspirational messages, and we doubt that she ever will be. In her latest Instagram post, she’s posing in a red swimsuit and once again sharing motivational words encouraging her followers to “go for it” whatever “it” is for them.

It’s never too late to improve yourself – to improve your health, your heart, your happiness, your harmony. For everyone out there just trying to be a lil bit better this week: go for it! Every bit counts. Every effort is worth it. You’re worth it.”
