Likely, Weibo was buzzing with conversations regarding her incredible weight loss, including “full record of Jia’s losing weight journey” and “Jia Ling totally shocked me,” and whether or not it’s time to start making more balanced habits for the Spring Festival. Moviegoer Li Qiaoya, who frequently goes to the gym to lose weight, told the Global Times,
Her achievement is quite inspiring and it deserves a movie ticket. I feel guilty for eating too much during the Spring Festival already.
As we know, Jia Ling was previously known for her infectious laughter and emotional performances. But she recently took social media to share her post-transformation image, complete with her unique dimpled smile. Fans were shocked by her newfound jawline, and many admired her bright beauty.
However, the 41-year-old comedian later stated that the film is not about boxing or reducing weight, but rather a heartfelt story about learning to love yourself. Yet, not everyone agrees with her weight-loss plan. She had to gain 20 kg to finish filming the picture before losing weight in just six months. According to Jiang Chong, a Chongqing-based fitness expert,
Not everyone can manage to shoulder the burden of losing 50 kilograms in just six months. It is not only a physical challenge but also a mental one.
When discussing Jia Ling’s weight-loss journey, she highlighted the necessity of having realistic goals in interviews leading up to the publication. Jiang reiterated the view, stating that setting attainable goals is essential for maintaining good health. He told,
It’s never bad to have a movie reminding so many people of the importance of keeping fit. To lose weight in a healthy way, it takes a long-term goal that consists of several reachable short-term goals. It would be better to work out a schedule and stick to it, rather than blindly trying extreme workload to lose weight.
