Rebel Wilson Says You Can Call Her 'Fit Amy' As She Gets Close To Her Goal Weight

Rebel Wilson Says You Can Call Her 'Fit Amy' As She Gets Close To Her Goal Weight

Rebel Wilson has continued to dazzle and amaze her fans on Instagram with her weight loss journey.

The Australian star has poked fun at her character from Pitch Perfect, who was nicknamed Fat Amy, in her latest post.

Now that the actor has launched her 'Year of Health', she reckons it's time for that name to get a bit of an update.

Rebel has posted a selfie to Instagram alongside the caption: "Just call me: Fit Amy."


The 40-year-old says she is just three kilograms away from achieving her goal weight after a gruelling diet and exercise regime that she kicked off at the start of the year.

In one of her recent posts, she revealed: "Gearing up for a great week ahead x 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' :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:) but I felt proud of myself."

The constant updates on how she's tracking has won her an army of supporters who enjoy seeing Rebel's transformation.


One person wrote: "Good job! Proud of you! Keep going queen."

Another added: "Congrats! You look amazing and your happiness is coming thru in your pictures!"

A third said: "I am so inspired by you. I'm on the edge of beginning my journey with a personal trainer since doing it on my own hasn't worked out well for me. I hope to be as motivated and positive as you soon enough."


Rebel has been blown away with all her supporters and says it's helped her stay on course.

The Aussie star said back in January that 2020 was going to be her 'Year of Health' and she's stuck to her word, and is believed to have lost around 18kg (2.8 stone) as well on focusing on the 'mental side' and working out with a personal trainer.

Speaking to The Sun in June, Rebel said: "I turned 40 as well in March and so I thought, 'This is gonna be it. This is going to be the year for me to just concentrate on the health benefits.'

"It's not like I want to lose weight and get to around a certain number. It's more than that, it's about dealing mentally with why I was overeating and I had a job where I was paid a lot of money to be bigger, at times, which kind of can mess with your head a bit.

"So now I'm just trying to work on the mental side and the physical job and doing a lot of personal training. On the nutrition side... it's cool, I should probably write a book at some point about it because people seem to be interested."
