We're impressed. Rebel Wilson has been rockin' her noticeable weight loss recently, and we can't help but feel inspired! Though she hasn't given specifics when it comes to the number she sees on the scale, her confidence is off the charts. The comedienne announced her commitment to a healthier lifestyle at the end of 2016 when she revealed that she had lost almost 33 pounds.
Two years later, she's managed to keep off the pounds. Rebel announced on Instagram that she's on the cover of the June issue of Vogue Australia. She wrote, "I never would’ve thought this element would be added to my life: Vogue Covergirl. This was such an amazing experience, thank you Vogue Australia and to all the designers and stylists who worked on this shoot! June issue @vogueaustralia on sale May 28th."

Earlier in May 2018, Rebel shared an Instagram photo, flaunting her toned-down figure while rocking a look from her clothing line. She looks thinner than ever! The actress has also been posting photos dancing and rehearsing to prepare for her turn as LeFou in Beauty and the Beast in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl. She's clearly staying fit and active, and her career is thriving.

Real talk: How did Rebel Wilson lose weight?
While she’s never gone into detail about her condition, the comedienne admits she has a hormonal imbalance that causes her to put on the pounds. So what’s up with Rebel Wilson's slimmed-down appearance? In April 2016, Rebel credited increased workouts for her new look — including four days at a luxury weight loss, wellness, and fitness retreat in Malibu called The Ranch, where she lost 8 pounds.
“OMG just finished 4 fantastic days at #TheRanch4.0…so challenging but very rewarding! Not to mention I lost 8 pounds from marathon king over the four days!" she wrote on social media. She captioned another snap, "There's nothing like some fierce tennis in 100 degree desert conditions!! #healthy."
Rebel has been vocal about maintaining an active lifestyle despite her busy schedule. So, what's her secret?
Rebel Wilson's exercise regime (well, besides the four-day hikes) is totally doable.
"Starting the year off right with some hiking," she wrote alongside an Instagram pic of herself in front of the Hollywood sign. Fans immediately flooded the comments section to applaud her healthy attitude towards weight loss (just like Adele's). "I really hope you know you’re such an inspiration! Keep breaking the ceiling, girl," one follower wrote, while another added, "Your [sic] my role model." Rebel has revealed that she prefers doing physical activity in the great outdoors.
The pic came just a few weeks after the Pitch Perfect 3 premiere on Nov. 29, 2017, where the blonde bombshell stepped out in a fiery red dress that highlighted her continually shrinking waistline. It's obvious she's been making some major changes over the past year.
Make no mistake, Rebel Wilson’s exercise routine is pretty robust. In January 2016, the How to Be Single actress told E! that she pounds the pavement five times a week to keep up her energy — and tennis is one of her favorite ways to get her sweat on. “I exercise like a mofo. I do personal training like five times a week. I also love playing tennis. I’m like a beast on the court,” she said. “You shoot 16 hours a day…so you’ve really got to have that stamina.”
Before we go any further, here are the Rebel Wilson before and after pictures you’ve been waiting for:

At the end of 2017, Rebel showed off her curves on Late Night with Seth Meyers in a stunning, strappy black dress. The piece actually comes from her clothing line, Rebel Wilson x Angels! It’s a far cry from the covered-up look she wore while promoting her ABC television show, Super Fun Night, in 2013 — and she looks amazing!

Early in 2018, Rebel showed off her figure while cheering on the Los Angeles Rams football team at an NFL game. She attended the match with some of her Pitch Perfect 3 co-stars — and was even caught dancing alongside Snoop Dogg.

While celebrating at Disneyland for her mom’s birthday in January 2018, Rebel flaunted her figure in a fitted black wrap dress, while boarding the Jungle Cruise ride. "Jungle cruising today,” she captioned the pic before sharing more photos from her festivities. What a way to start the new year!

She’s always on the go! Those two years in between made all the difference — Rebel has slimmed down and it seems like she's thriving.

At the 2014 Australian premiere of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Rebel sported a rounder face and fuller figure. Four years later, she considerably slimmed down!
So, what’s Rebel Wilson’s diet plan? Well, it doesn’t sound like she has one.
Rebel admitted to Cosmo that she doesn’t have the best relationship with food. "I love me some ice cream or dessert, and it comes at times when I'm happy or sad. So when I have an incredibly successful day, I want to celebrate and reward myself with food. If I've had a sad or stressful day, food is also comfort,” she revealed. "You would probably describe it as emotional or stress-eating. I don't do drugs; I don't really drink… so eating is my one vice. I wouldn't ever want to totally give it up."
At this point, you may be wondering — did Rebel Wilson have weight loss surgery? Hard no.
Don't listen to gossip — the Aussie didn't undergo weight loss surgery. In fact, she's always been proud of her curves, telling Cosmopolitan in 2015, "Being unique and different was a really good thing. When I walked into my agent's office for the first time [in 2009], they looked at me and said, ‘Wow, we have nobody on our books like you.’ And they signed me on my second day here.”
She added, "I wouldn't ever want to compete with what I call ‘the glamours’ — the really gorgeous people. I'm about the brain, the heart, and what's on the inside. I feel really lucky to be the body type I am."
Although Rebel admits that she notices how her body type differs from some of her co-stars, she says that people still tell her not to lose any weight. "People say, 'Don't lose weight!' They're like, 'You don't want to be in that weird range of like, are you skinny or are you fat?' Because how do you class yourself then?” the actress, who plays Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect series, told E! In 2016. “For me, I think it’s about being comfortable in your own skin. I never want to be too unhealthy, because that’s bad. You just want to be comfortable with who you are at whatever size.”
To this day, the actress is a body positivity warrior. On the footsteps of her Torrid line, Rebel launched her own clothing brand called Rebel Wilson x Angels to create young, trendy plus-size clothing that women are excited to wear. The collection is full of her preferred clothing type — bodycon everything — and the clothes are fitted and all about flaunting your figure.
