It isn't just intense workouts that have gotten Wilson to her weight loss goal—the star says that incremental changes in the amount of exercise she gets on a daily basis have been instrumental to her weight loss.

"Obviously, I have access to some amazing high-tech treatments, but what I learned is it's really the little things that I do every day that make a difference," she tells InStyle.

"Anyone can go on walks and drink more water and do little, consistent things that'll improve their lives."

Wilson has found a calorie-free way to treat herself: with designer clothing and accessories.

"I just bought a Yves Saint Laurent handbag after finishing The Almond and the Seahorse because I'm trying to be healthier and treat myself with things that are not food anymore," she says.

She started working out in the morning.

Instead of waiting until the evening to squeeze in a workout, Wilson is now starting her day with exercise.

While shooting The Almond and the Seahorse, Wilson says, "Every morning I was up in the gym at the hotel working out for 90 minutes before a full day of filming. But that's just my life now."

Though Wilson may be proud of her weight loss, she says she wishes she'd tried to get healthier before.

"Now that I know I can do it, sometimes I feel sad that I didn't do it earlier. Maybe I should have tried when I was 30, not 40. But everybody's journey is different, and it's not a race or competition."
