Rebel is now almost at her goal weight of 165lbs.

She's been keeping her fans updated on her health journey and recently gave insight into her workouts with a post on Instagram.

"This week was super busy but I got up super early 3 times (6 am) and went on a hike," she said. "Even did a couple of 100m sprints to get the heart rate even higher (although my 'sprint' is probably someone else's 'slow jog')."
