Rebel's Austrian getaway looked magical 

Her fans bombarded her with comments and told her she was "an inspiration" and many thanked her for sharing her journey with them.

Rebel has packed her time at the retreat with healthy activities and during a live Q&A on her Instagram on Tuesday she opened up about making her health a priority and reaching her goal weight of 165lbs. 

The star admitted not everyone in the entertainment industry was happy to see her lose weight though. 

"Industry-wise, there were a lot of people who wanted me to stay as Fat Amy," she said, referring to her character in the movie franchise Pitch Perfect.

Rebel has embraced the Alps

"And at the end of the day it is my life and my body and Hollywood had in a way typecast me but I didn’t want to stay like that.

"It makes me sad sometimes that I didn’t value myself enough before all of this to get healthy."

Now though, Rebel has landed her first role in a non-comedic movie and she's also launched her career as a children's book author too. 

She's found love with her boyfriend, Jacob Busch, and Rebel can't wait to kickstart 2021 as her healthiest self.
