Rebel Wilson's "Year of Health" continues—and she's feeling better than ever. The actress and Pooch Perfect host, 41, just shared new details about her weight loss journey on Sunrise, an Australian morning show.

Rebel told hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr that, since she started switching up her lifestyle, “I lost about 35 kilos [77 lbs].” And, her life has “changed dramatically” in the past year.

She said in a video filmed by her husband Chris Fischer shared to Instagram on Saturday (18.09.21): "So, it's the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out.

Even her physician noticed: “I went to the doctor's and got my yearly check-up last week, and he's like, ‘Oh my God, all your labs and your blood work is the best it's ever been and you know, it's kind of remarkable,’” Rebel said.

Rebel was also honest about how losing weight has impacted her fertility journey. "It first started when I was looking into fertility stuff and the doctor was like, ‘Well, you’d have a much better chance if you were healthier,'” she said. That "offended" her "a bit," she explained, because she already thought she was at a "pretty healthy" weight.

“That’s kind of what started it, that if I lost some excess weight that it would give me a better chance for freezing eggs and having the eggs be a better quality,” she continued. “It wasn’t even really myself, it was more thinking of a future mini-me, really.”

Why women need greater transparency over fertility choices

  Why women need greater transparency over fertility choices An expert explains why the fertility treatments currently on offer in the UK aren't enoughThere’s no question that fertility clinics in the UK perform miracles, helping people start families when it feels otherwise impossible. Yet, if you’re struggling to conceive, the options presented to you by a clinic can be expensive, invasive and physically draining. The experience of fertility treatment is different for everyone, and for many women the existing options are financially feasible and physically manageable. But for others, the current offering doesn’t leave them with much of a choice at all.

Rebel added that she feels like people have been "obsessed" with her weight loss. “In 2019, I had, like, four movies come out, two which I [also] produced and one, Jojo Rabbit [in which I starred], which got nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture,” she said. But she wasn't making headlines until 2020, "when I do nothing except lose weight."

“People are so obsessed with [weight loss]. But I get it,” she said. Rebel admitted she was also eager to hear about her favorite talk show host's fitness journey, who “certainly struggled with eating issues." "I would always watch her episodes when she spoke about that,” Rebel continued.

Still, Rebel's "Year of Health" has given her a major confidence boost. “I grew up not really trading on my looks. I was the personality girl," she said. “But after going through my whole health transformation last year, I’ve been in touch with this ‘inner siren.’”

“It’s not about being a certain size or body weight or anything," Rebel said. "It’s just about loving yourself and loving the journey that you’re on. And to me, the women I think are most beautiful are those who step into their own power.”
