If you follow Rebel Wilson on Instagram, you may have noticed she's been enjoying a vacation in Cappadocia, a region in Turkey, over the last few days. Along with some amazing travel photos, the actress recently shared a candid update about her weight while on her trip.

Wilson posted a photo of herself in a hot pink one-shoulder swimsuit and a white cover-up. She's standing in front of clear blue water, seemingly living it up in vacation mode. In the caption, the Senior Year star revealed she gained weight on her trip. More importantly, she shared why she's not being hard on herself over it.

"I just noticed I put on 3 kg's on my holiday 🙈 I'm at an amazing all-inclusive resort…I've lost all self control 😜," wrote Wilson. "But you know what? I can get up tomorrow and go to the gym and hydrate and eat healthy and love myself." She went on to offer some words of wisdom to her followers.

"It doesn't help to be hard on yourself, but I know what it's like to feel guilty and not great after eating too much. But if you're like me, just know YOU are more than just your weight," wrote Wilson. "Your weight doesn't define you, just try your best to be healthy and don't be so hard on yourself 💗 Be the best version of you 💗" (Psst, Gabrielle Union also opened up about her weight fluctuations.)

This comes more than two years after Wilson declared 2020 her "year of health," which she since revealed was the result of thinking about her fertility. Throughout her health journey, Wilson has shared the workouts she started incorporating into her routine, including doing outdoor tire flips, taking surf lessons, and simply going for walks. Her hard work seems to have paid off, as she announced she reached her goal weight in late 2020.

In fact, earlier this year, Wilson said she feels her best yet. "It's not just about how I look on the outside, but kind of how I feel about myself," she told Yahoo Life in April. "...A lot of my friends say that even though I was confident before, I have a newfound confidence."

Wilson still seems to be continuing to focus on how she feels, enjoying her recent vacation without paying much attention to a number on scale. Her followers were quick to support her in the comments of her latest post. "I needed this 😩 thank you so much 🥰," wrote one commenter. "Nicely said. It's not easy when you lose weight and then feel like you've failed in some way when you put it back on. Focusing on loving myself through it in the meantime. ❤️" said another.

If you can relate to Wilson's recent post, it's important to remember that weight fluctuates daily and that gaining weight throughout a vacation is completely normal. Wilson has the right idea in striving to remain kind to herself every day.
