  • Rebel Wilson revealed on Instagram that she's nearly to her goal weight of 165 pounds after jumpstarting a health journey this year.

  • Her fans are celebrating her progress as she shares more insight into her new routine — and plenty of new photos.

Rebel Wilson seems to be shedding more than just pounds in 2020 as she works her way through her "year of health." The 40-year-old Bridesmaids comedian is angling to embrace a new image after rocketing to fame as "Fat Amy" in 2012's Pitch Perfect. The actress has also revealed that her fitness goal is nearly complete on Instagram: She shared a candid workout photo this past week where she added she's just 6 pounds shy of her target weight. Now, Rebel is acknowledging her hard work by having a bit of fun with her fans, who have found inspiration in her continuous updates throughout the year.

Just call me: Fit Amy

"Just call me: Fit Amy," Rebel joked while sharing a brand new selfie this morning, in a reference to her iconic Pitch Perfect character Patricia Hobart that famously enjoyed the nickname "Fat Amy." Nearly of all her fans immediately caught the reference, with most adding jokes of their own. "She's moving on up from horizontal running!" wrote former Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, while fellow Pitch Perfect co-star Alexis Knapp added "Ayyyy FIT AF PATRICIA! 😍👏🏻🔥⚡️❤️". Octavia Spencer also showed her support with a string of fire emojis.

While nearly 4,000 followers have chimed in to cheer Rebel on, the actress certainly has earned her updated nickname with her commitment to a new fitness routine. Her most recent Instagram revelation gave followers insight into what an average workout has looked like for Rebel this year. "This week was super busy but I got up super early 3 times (6am) and went on a hike," she shared on Instagram last week. "Even did a couple of 100m sprints to get the heart rate even higher (although my 'sprint' is probably someone else's 'slow jog')."

Rebel has been working with personal trainers throughout the year, according to Women's Health, and she may be relying on high-intensity interval training for results, among other activities. It all began earlier in 2020 when Rebel revealed she was committed to revolutionizing her health via Instagram: "Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going x it will be worth it. Try and give a little bit of effort each day," she shared back in May.

Rebel hasn't been as open on her new diet as she has her fitness routine. She often preaches about snacking in moderation — just last week, Rebel shared a Boomerang of her favorite dessert while at an event with the caption "Remember [though] girls, you still gotta treat yourself" — but other habits or practices are a bit unclear. She's reportedly working her way through the Mayr Method Diet program, a clinic-based program in Austria that is known to be frequented by celebrities and wellness icons alike. While the program has since spawned a diet book available to anyone, it's most famous principles encourage people to thoroughly chew food, occasionally fast, and is largely based on the Alkaline Diet.

While it seems that the actress is very close to her goal weight of 75 kilograms, about 165 pounds, her journey may be more about the long-term changes in her life. A source tells People magazine that Rebel is enjoying a newfound confidence (which we can totally see for ourselves!) and how her fitness routine makes her feel emotionally: "She has more energy and more confidence, which you can see from her sexier Instagram shots. She's also having fun with new fashion and beauty looks."
