During her year of health in 2020, the comedian opened up about her struggle with emotional eating and being diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). In an interview with E! News, Wilson said she had been suffering from PCOS from a young age.

“I’ve been overweight for about 20 years,” she told the outlet. “I started gaining weight when I was about 20. I had something called PCOS and I gained weight rapidly. It’s just a hormone imbalance and you gain a lot of weight usually and that’s how it manifested in me.

“Sometimes, I feel sad, but then at the same time, I worked my body to my advantage. I like being all sizes. It’s just now turning 40, I am more health-conscious and thinking of starting a family.”
