Her look was in stark contrast to the blonde appearance she sports today. But then Rebel has gone through a huge health overhaul in recent months and transformed her mind and body entirely.

Rebel looked so different with her dark hair 

She's lost 75lbs and feels amazing and one the first big changes stemmed from reading this book, Within: A Spiritual Awakening to Love & Weight Loss, written by her doctor, Habib Sadeghi. 

It's not been an easy journey though and she opened up about the years prior to her decision to make her health a priority in an emotional Instagram post recently.

Rebel said her smile disguised how unhappy she was feeling 

"But found this old photo in my emails and was like: whoa! I remember this was when I was at my most unhealthiest - being overweight and indulging way too much with junk food."Using food to numb my emotions. 

"My father had passed away of a heart attack and it was such a sad time. I didn't think highly of myself and wasn’t valuing myself how I should have.

She's worked really to overhaul her health 

"I look back now at that girl and am so proud of what she's become and achieved. And just wanted to send out some encouragement to everyone out there struggling with weight or body issues or emotional eating. I feel you. I know what it’s like.

"But it's never too late to start improving yourself and trying to be the best version of YOU possible. 

"It's not a race and it's not a competition - it's about respecting yourself and doing what's best for YOU. So if you're out there and reading this today, I just wanted to say: keep smiling and keep trying to be active! Love you guys."
