Rebel Wilson has written candidly about her struggles with her body, weight, and self esteem.
The Australian actor posted an old photo on Instagram where she says she was at her "most unhealthiest."
Wilson had previously said that 2020 was her "year of health" and has posted photos over the past months, showing she's lost a significant amount of weight.
At the time of the throwback photo of her, standing with tennis player Novak Djokovic, Wilson said she was "overweight and indulging way too much with junk food. Using food to numb my emotions."
Wilson said she was grieving the death of her father at the time, too. She was sad, in pain, and had low self-esteem.
The actor said she looks back at the years since with pride. She now feels confident and happy.
"And just wanted to send out some encouragement to everyone out there struggling with weight or body issues or emotional eating," Wilson wrote. "I feel you. I know what it's like. But it's never too late to start improving yourself and trying to be the best version of YOU possible."
She told her followers that getting fit isn't a race or a competition, it's about self-respect 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!"
