Rebel Wilson’s new challenge is keeping off the weight she lost during her ‘Year of Health’.

The 41-year-old actress overhauled her diet and lifestyle last year in an effort to slim down to 165 pounds (75kg) and hit her target weight in just under 11 months.

Now, she’s enjoying showcasing her new figure on social media, but she confessed she still has work to do as she tries to keep off the pounds.

“Now the challenge is to keep it off. I’ve never successfully in my life (done that). I’ve lost a bit of weight here and there, but never kept it off,” she told Good Morning America, adding that she was on a mission last year and “overhauled my whole lifestyle and for the first time in my life really prioritised health.”

The Pitch Perfect star said she struggles with emotional eating and is preparing herself not to fall off the wagon as the Easter holidays approach.

“Seeing all the Easter eggs out there right now, I’m like, ‘woo!’ It’s driving me crazy,” Rebel laughed.

However, she insisted she’s focusing on the positives of her inspirational weight loss journey and is proud of herself for sticking to the high-protein diet and exercise regime.

“I’m loving it, and I’m really proud of myself for being able in such a difficult year to do a whole life transformation,” Rebel shared.
