Find Someone to Look Up To

Rebel is totally okay with the public's obsession with her weight loss, telling Australia's Daily Telegraph that she understands why they can't get enough of it."People are so obsessed with it," she explained. "But I get it. Oprah is one of my heroes. She's certainly struggled with eating issues and I would always watch her episodes when she spoke about that."


Find a Good Reason to Lose Weight

Wilson revealed to the Daily Telegraph that finding a healthy motivator helped her successfully get into shape. "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."


Address Emotional Eating

Addressing emotional eating was one of the key ways Rebel modified her eating habits. "For the first time in my life I've lost weight and maintained it," she told the Daily Telegraph. "So I'm more proud of that fact. It worked because it was the whole lifestyle approach and dealing with emotional eating. I'm not totally cured. I don't think you can be. But I've learnt to manage it — and it's not by reaching for a bowl of ice cream."


Don't Focus on the Numbers

"To me what the year of health was, was just being a healthier version," she recently explained to Jamila Rizvi on The Weekend Briefing per Yahoo Australia. "I think people are beautiful in all different sizes, and I would feel just as confident rocking my size 16 dress as I do now. I'm about a size 8 now," she said. "I loved being bigger and it never stopped me from achieving anything in my life."


Be Accountable

While Rebel admits that she may "annoy some people" with her social media posts it is a key way she maintains accountability.. "I feel really good within myself and I like to celebrate the journey," she said. "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."


Sleep and Hydration Are Key


"Adequate sleep, walking, hydrating, [and] drinking water," she revealed during a Q&A about her health secrets. "You'll always see me with a FIJI [water] in my hand, and balance it with the nutrition."


Health Is an Inside Joy


Health starts on the inside. "I think because I approached it from all areas … the biggest thing that I haven't ever worked on was the emotional side, what I suffered from, I guess, as classical emotional eating … so I really worked on that side," she told Extra.


Break a Sweat

Exercise is one of the healthy habits that keeps Rebel in shape, and she makes sure to stay moving even when she is busy. "This week was super busy but I got up super early 3 times (6am 😜) and went on a hike…even did a couple of 100m sprints to get the heart rate even higher (although my 'sprint' is probably someone else's 'slow jog' 😝) but I felt proud of myself and now only 3kg's away from my goal weight!" she wrote on Instagram.
