She's Motivated By Her Future

Wilson notably made 2020 her "Year of Health," and documented her journey on social media. She revealed her reasons for doing so in an interview with People. She says that her desire to have kids in the future was a major motivation for her. "It'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 Eats A High-Protein Diet


Wilson tells People that she made a lot of changes to her diet. She says that she now eats more protein, and limits her carbs."Before I was probably eating 3,000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry," she said. "So, I've really changed to eating a high-protein diet, which is challenging because I didn't used to eat a lot of meat. I eat fish, salmon, and chicken breast." "The Recommended Daily Allowance for men is 56 grams a day, while for women it's 46 grams. That's about as much as you'd get in 4 to 5 chicken drumsticks or two large hamburgers. Other ways to reach near those numbers: 2 ½ pork chops, 15 slices of bacon, or an 8-ounce steak," says our sister site Eat This, Not That!


She Used The Lockdown To Get Healthy

Wilson made 2020 her "Year of Health," and the pandemic didn't stop her. She tells People that lockdowns helped her stick with it. "I definitely think with the slow down, it did help," she says. "I think I was emotional eating, and overeating at times, because I wasn't loving myself enough either. And it does come down to that self-worth and self-love."


She Believes In Balance

Wilson is eating healthier, however, that doesn't mean she's restricting herself. "I'm just trying to go for overall balance, overall healthy balance," she said to People. "I have this state of being, which is not my quote, but I go 'Nothing is forbidden.' We'll be like, 'Should we get In-N-Out burger?' And I'm like, 'Nothing is forbidden.' I can go there, I just might eat half of what I used to eat before. You know? And I'll have a burger, and a few fries, and then you feel fine."


She's Confident

Wilson tells The Morning Show that she has always been confident. She says that her weight loss has helped boost her confidence. "I like to think I looked good at all sizes and stuff and I've always been quite confident," she said. "So, it wasn't like I wasn't confident and then now I'm, like, super confident." "Self-image is not permanently fixed. Part of our self-image is dynamic and changing. We can learn to develop a healthier and more accurate view of ourselves, thus challenging the distortions in the mirror. Self-image change occurs over a lifetime. A healthy self-image starts with learning to accept and love ourselves. It also means being accepted and loved by others," says the Cleveland Clinic.
