Rebel Wilson shared a reminder of what she looked like at her ‘unhealthiest’ describing to fans how she got to this place after indulging in “too much junk food.”
As you know, Wilson is on an amazing weight loss and health journey and posts stunning photos of how great she currently looks. But, the actress found an old photo of herself at what she calls her “most unhealthiest” — and decided to share it with her fans.
“Okay, so I know that I normally post flattering photos of myself…but found this old photo in my emails and was like: whoa! I remember this was when I was at my most unhealthiest – being overweight and indulging way too much with junk food. Using food to numb my emotions,” she captioned the picture.

The actress went on to explain it was a very hard time in her life, following the death of her father.
“My father had passed away of a heart attack and it was such a sad time. I didn’t think highly of myself and wasn’t valuing myself how I should have. It’s interesting that I’m still smiling and still trying to be active,” she continued.
In the photo, Rebel is posing with tennis star Novak Djokovic and reminds fans that she stayed active during that time period, but describes the issue with emotional eating. “this was taken at a charity tennis tournament event (ps Djokovic is such a nice guy) – despite being in so much pain. I look back now at that girl and am so proud of what she’s become and achieved. And just wanted to send out some encouragement to everyone out there struggling with weight or body issues or emotional eating. I feel you. I know what it’s like,” she said.

This isn’t the first time she has posed with a tennis legend. A few days ago, Rebel shared a stunning photo of herself sporting a beautiful sundress with tennis star John McEnroe.
In the end, Rebel encouraged her fans that it’s never too late to start getting healthy and change your habits. As a famous person, she looks amazing and could be the spark that someone needs to begin their journey. “It’s never too late to start improving yourself and trying to be the best version of YOU possible. It’s not a race and it’s not a competition – it’s about respecting yourself and doing what’s best for YOU. So if you’re out there and reading this today, I just wanted to say: keep smiling and keep trying to be active! Love you guys,” she concluded.

At this point, Rebel has lost over 65 pounds and recently revealed she started the process after visiting with a fertility doctor. Apparently, while the actress was speaking to the medical professional they reminded her the process would be much easier if she was “healthy.” She admittedly was a bit offended, but says, “that’s kind of what started it, that if I lost some excess weight that it would give me a better chance for freezing eggs and having the eggs be better quality. It wasn’t even really myself, it was more thinking of a future mini-me, really.”
