The Bridesmaids star explained that at the beginning of 2020, she decided she was going to make this her “Year Of Health”.

“For the last few years I’ve been theming my years, so I had the Year Of Fun, last year I had the Year Of Love and this year I’m like, ‘It’s going to be the Year Of Health,’” she told Drew Barrymore on The Drew Barrymore Show.

The actor went on to say that turning 40 in March last year had inspired her to rethink her health regime.

“I never really focused on my health, which was probably obvious,” she added.

“I was going all around the world, jet-setting everywhere and eating a ton of sugar,” Wilson continued. “That was my vice. I have a very sweet tooth. I love desserts.”

During her health and fitness journey, the star has been keeping fans updated about her dedication to living a healthier lifestyle, and revealing some of the body confidence tricks she’s adopted to keep her on track, including ditching the scales. 

In a post shared to Instagram she shared a snap of herself wearing a dressing gown, with a set of scales visible in the reflection of a mirror.

Captioning the snap, the star wrote: “Rather than step on the scale, look at yourself in the mirror and be like ‘dammmm girrrrrl... you’re smart and talented and accomplished and perfect just the way you are.’”

The piece of self-esteem-boosting advice went down well with social media users who left more than 180,000 ‘likes’.

One person wrote: “I love this!”

Another commented: “Well I needed that more today than I’d like to admit.”
