Taking to Instagram, Rebel showed off a new haircut and her 18kg weight loss in a little black dress.

Rebel's followers have made sure to share their encouragement with the star, with one user writing, "Gorgeous always and incredibly inspiring how you always achieve your goals! You got this."

Another referenced Rebel's Pitch Perfect character Fat Amy, saying, "Did she just become Fit Amy?"

Someone else said, "At any weight, you’re hilarious, vibrant and gorgeous!!!"

Rebel's trainer Jono Castano also wrote, "What a journey it’s been @rebelwilson You got this girl."

Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle earlier this year, Jono recommended anyone trying to transform their body like Rebel has should train five days a week and focus on nutrition.

"I always think of it as the more you do the better, but don't over do it. So, for any type of transformation I'd definitely recommend five times a week, with two days of recovery if possible.

"But recovery is, you know, you're focusing on your stretching, getting a massage, or decreasing the load of the exercises, so, for example, going for a walk. Not every training session needs to be one hundred per cent, as long as we're moving and we're burning calories I think that's the key for any type of training."

When asked how he felt about fad diets and people promising body transformations in six to eight weeks, Jono urged people not to go for the quickest option possible.

"I think with any type of transformation, you shouldn't always look at the easiest option, you know, two months is not enough time to be able to change your body," he said.

"A transformation is never ending, the journey always continues, so you can never give yourself 10, 12 weeks. Because it just continues, once you reach your goal then what? Then you're going to stop? You can't stop it becomes a lifestyle, you continue and you become the best version of yourself as cliche as it sounds.

Jono added, "Two months just isn't enough time. Don't forget, two months, you're putting a lot of stress on yourself. When your goal is like that and you don't achieve it, it can cause a lot of mental problems. So, my advice is keep your goals realistic, short and then achieve them and progress from there."

This is why what Rebel is doing with her "year of health" is so important, she's not trying to lose as much weight as possible in as little time as she can.

Jono agreed, saying, "A hundred per cent, and I think that when we look at fitness, that's how we should look at it, as a change of lifestyle. Add better things to your life."
