Social media has been swooning over Rebel Wilson's weight transformation journey and almost everything she has to say about it. Currently, on a multi-continent vacation with her girlfriend, Ramona Agruma, Rebel took to Instagram and posted a picture with a striking pink swimsuit and white cover-up. She wrote about having gained almost 7 pounds while having a gala time in Turkey.

She mentioned how she lost all self-control but is not fretting since she "can get up tomorrow and go to the gym, and hydrate and eat healthy and love myself". Rebel, 42, has been known to be vocal about her weight and this body-positive message about self-love is the inch-perfect description of her approach toward a healthy lifestyle all along. In the same post, she urged all her followers to not be hard on themselves and that they are "more than just their weight".

Her fans and loved ones swamped the comment lauding her honesty and the sensitivity that comes with it. Fashion journalist Laura Brown wrote, "What do they say, happiness is the best look of all? ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ". Several other users showered their love with messages like "You are such a beautiful soul! Inside and out! We are more than our weight! ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“" and "I needed this ๐Ÿ˜ฉ thank you so much ๐Ÿฅฐ you look stunning ๐Ÿ˜". Needless to say, Rebel's words did resonate with a lot of people.

Wilson recalls the fertility doctor's visit in 2019 that changed her life. During that visit WiIson, who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), was told she would โ€œdo much betterโ€ if she were healthier and have higher chances of harvesting and freezing her eggs if she lost weight.

โ€œI was taken aback. I thought, 'Oh God, this guy's so rude.' He was right. I was carrying around a lot of excess weight,โ€ Rebel told People. โ€œIt's almost like I didn't think of my own needs. I thought of a future child's needs that really inspired me to get healthier." She then proceeded to lose 80lbs over the next 12 months and is now feeling healthier than ever.

Wilson was seen on the screen in her latest project, 'Senior Year', where she played a 37-year-old protagonist. Known for playing witty female characters, some of her other notable roles appear in 'Pitch Perfect' and 'The Hustle'.

She has been up and about travelling with her partner and constantly keeps her Instagram updated with her vacation pictures. She confirmed her relationship with Ramona on June 9 via an Instagram post. Ramona is a successful fashion and jewellery designer who founded the sustainable fashion line Lemon Ve Limon in 2021 and the luxury jewellery brand DeLys in 2013. The company has catered to the likes of Gwen Stefani and Madonna. The two women were set up by actor-singer Hugh Sheridan and have been in a serious relationship ever since.

Previously, the 'Pitch Perfect' star had spoken about the adversity she faced because of being forced to come out early. She has been forthright about various issues like her sexuality and weight and strongly believes in taking things at her own pace. This post was no different when she signed off with a wholesome message: "Don't be so hard on yourself ๐Ÿ’— Be the best version of you ๐Ÿ’—".
