Rebel Wilson started to lose weight not just for herself.
Wilson, so far, has already lost 65 pounds from her original weight. She previously hit her goal to reduce her mass to 76 kilos.
At that time, she only said that she wanted to lose weight to live a healthier and better life. But it seems like she did not do it only for herself.
On her recent Instagram live, the 41-year-old actress revealed the real reason why she started her health journey in 2020 after a fan asked her.
"That is such a massive question, but I'm going to try to answer it for you," she said (via Fox News). "It first started when I was looking into fertility stuff and the doctor was like, 'Well, you'd have a much better chance if you were healthier.'"
According to Wilson, she initially felt offended by what her doctor said at that time since she believed she was "pretty healthy."
However, it was also the exact moment she realized how much she needs to lift weights, not for vanity reasons. She then thought that, if she loses some of her excess weight, she would have a better chance of having a better quality of eggs to freeze.
She ended her statement by saying that her weight loss journey was not really about herself, but for a little version of Wilson.
Rebel Wilson Shares Bad News
After trying to overcome her weight problems, Wilson received bad news about her fertility this year.
In May, she shared a photo of her Instagram and shared fertility problems with her followers.
"I got some bad news today and didn't have anyone to share it with...but I guess I gotta tell someone. To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya," she captioned the post, before adding: "The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn't make sense...but I hope there's light about to shine through all the dark clouds."
She received the news months after she first decided to have her eggs freeze. According to the "How To Be Single" actress, she aims to freeze her eggs at the age of 41.
Since she already reached the age, it pushed her hard to be healthier as soon as possible. Although she chose her own perfect time, she suggested her fans do the same a bit earlier if they can.
