She Takes Leisure Walks

Rebel recently revealed to TODAY Health that leisure walks are one of her favorite methods of exercise. "It's just about keeping your body moving and keeping the blood pumping. I feel like sometimes people think you need to work your body really hard to get results, and yeah, if you were training to be the next Thor or something you would be doing hardcore things, but as a regular person, walking is just so healthy for you. The body is designed to move in that way," she said. "When I go for a walk, I can put in a podcast or listen to music, and it's so easy to do anywhere in the world. I can just go out and do it. It's become my favorite form of exercise right now."


She Is Conscious About Why She Eats

Rebel understands that why you eat is sometimes just as important as what you eat. "It's actually been stressing me out a little bit … I was like 'Oh God, what if I go back to my old habits of eating a whole pint of ice cream because I'm stressed?'" she explained to TODAY. "Or reach for the sugar, because that's what I do when I'm tired and stressed."


She Has Made Health a Habit

Rebel hasn't gained back any of the weight she lost in 2020, and has even lost "a few extra pounds" in 2021, which she attributes to her healthy lifestyle. "It is weird, because I haven't been trying to, it's just that the lifestyle habits that I did last year have kind of become ingrained. So it's good. I think I'm a little bit shocked, because I was worried. I think everybody who's struggled with their weight has at times (felt like that) … I've managed to maintain that for almost a year. It's just all those lifestyle habits changing."


She Prioritizes Self Care

Rebel continues prioritizing self-care, in the form of getting regular massages and facials, sleeping eight hours a night, and taking vitamins. "When I'm filming, at about 3 p.m., I would go and take all my Olly vitamins and stuff," she explained. "It felt like a treat, because they're so yummy … They're not candy, but they (remind me) of the Haribo gummy bears I used to eat and they actually have things that are good for me."


She Lost Weight for the Right Reasons

Wilson xplained to the  Australia's Daily Telegraph that her weight loss wasn't motivated by vanity — she had good reasons. "It's not about being a certain size or body weight or anything," she 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." One of them? Her dreams of becoming a mother. 


She Stays Accountable

Accountability is a big part of Rebel's health journey. While she admits that she may "annoy some people" with her health journey updates on social media, it is a key way she maintains accountability. "I feel really good within myself and I like to celebrate the journey," she explained to Jamila Rizvi on The Weekend Briefing per Yahoo Australia. "And also, why I did it publicly was for accountability as well, because it's all good and well just having a little experiment and if you don't tell people about it you could just easily fail, whereas if I tell the whole world on social media, then that's pretty good motivation."


She Doesn't Focus On the Numbers

Rebel is committed to being a "healthier version" of herself and tries not to focus on the numbers. "Just give it a go," she suggests. "Don't beat yourself up if in the past you were unhealthy, because I definitely was engaging in unhealthy habits like eating junk food and sugar all the time. But it doesn't do any benefit to beat yourself up. It's more about going 'OK, I'm going to do this for me.' … Try things throughout the year, different lifestyle habits that are positive and healthy, and see what results you get. Any steps that you take towards having better health is a plus."
