Wilson's health woes come after a transformative year, as she spent 2020 working out and eating right, resulting in a 60 pound weight loss. She also revealed that she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which can cause fertility issues.

During that time frame, she told fans she was thinking about freezing her eggs, which was one of her motivating factors to shape up.

"I was thinking about fertility and having good quality eggs in the bank, so I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to do this, I’m going to get healthy,'" she explained.

While fans praised the Pooch Perfect host for her slimmed-down look, she was adamant that looking good isn't a priority.

"My goal was never to be skinny," she said to PEOPLE. "I don't focus too much on the numbers. I still look like me. I love being curvy and I'm still super curvy but just a healthier version. That was my goal."
