As people grow older, they start to pay more attention to their health and their physical appearances. 31-year-old Cathryn Li (李元玲) is no exception.
The social media influencer, well known for her piano skills, is also recognised for her enviable figure. She shows dedication to maintaining said figure with her many gym photos.
Yesterday (22nd June), Cathryn posted a before and after photo of her figure on Instagram. The influencer showed the difference between her body from 2016 and 2021. She added that she had lost 8kg over the 5 years. In the caption, she wrote, “Success in weight loss is not the ultimate goal, but to adapt to a new healthy lifestyle, so that it will not rebound repeatedly.” The influencer was clearly happy with her achievement.
In her Instagram story, she added a detailed explanation of her current lifestyle. According to her, her fat percentage at 44kg is now 18%, which is presumably a healthy level. She stated that she had not visited the gym for 40 days now, citing the lockdown as a reason, however, she has been doing cardio at home. She added that she’s been using the calorie deficit method alongside her diet.
Surprisingly, many fans have stated she looked better in 2016. “(Your figure) looked good before it was reduced,” one comment said. “Prefer 2016,” another shared. Although the agreement that her 2016 body looked better was unanimous, there were some comments that said she looked good in both photos. One comment even asked for her height, stating it would be “a good reference for all the girls out here“.
It is admirable of Cathryn Li to aim for having a healthy lifestyle and her courage to share her journey on Instagram should certainly be applauded. The responses may not have been ones anyone expected, but hopefully, she’s still proud of her own achievement.
