Rebel opens up about weight loss
Aussie actress and comedian Rebel Wilson has opened up about her weight loss journey as she works towards her goal of hitting 75kg by the end of the year.
Speaking on Sunrise this morning, the Pitch Perfect star, 40, said she's on a "health mission" involving gruelling morning work out sessions made extra difficult by COVID-19 lockdown.
It comes after she told fans on Instagram earlier this month that she's working hard to achieve her goals in 2020.

Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going x it will be worth it. Try and give a little bit of effort each day...I know some days are frustrating as hell, you feel like giving up, you get annoyed at the lack of progress...but good things are coming your way 🤘what are your goals this year? I’ll be honest with you guys - with my “Year of Health” mission I’m trying to get to 75kg’s and career wise am trying to get one of my movies into production before the end of the year! Both of these things are requiring a daily effort and there’s constant set backs - but I’m working hard x
"I'm on a health mission, it's called the "year of health for me," Wilson told the program.
"I've been doing a lot of working out, which was hard with the coronavirus restrictions because I had to go out to the park and just lie on the dirt doing my sit-ups," she revealed.
"Now it's getting cold in the mornings so I'm glad the gyms are reopening."
Over the past few weeks Wilson has been showing off the results of her major fitness overhaul after vowing to make 2020 her "Year of Health".
The Australian actress posed in grey activewear and a large straw hat as she enjoyed the sunshine on Sydney Harbour in the new pictures shared on Instagram over the weekend.
"Australia you cheeky possum!" Wilson, 40, captioned the album.
It comes after she publicly made a New Year's resolution at the start of the year to ditch her unhealthy eating habits and kickstart a new fitness journey.
She wrote on Instagram: "Okay so for me 2020 is going to be called 'The Year of Health'.
"So 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?"
He said he encourages his clients to workout daily for 45-minute sessions, noting "results come through consistency".
His personalised program for the star included high-intensity interval training, mobility, weights, resistance, technique and tempo. Wilson has one day off a week to rest her body.
