Former DJ Dongfang Billy reveals he weighed 126kg in June, working to regain his trim physique

BEIJING – Former radio deejay Dongfang Billy is working hard to regain his trim physique after struggling with health problems in recent years, he reveals in a Facebook post on Monday.

The one-time callisthenics coach popular among aunties for his health talks, underwent three operations in three years and subsequently put on weight until he hit an all-time high of 126kg in June.

This was in sharp contrast to his usual weight in the past, which hovered around 80kg.

The 60-year-old Singaporean, whose real name is Wang Zhong Cheng, underwent operations to fix the meniscus in his left leg, a retinal detachment in his right eye and a herniated disc.

Wang, who now resides in China, has kept a low profile on social media in recent years and did not post photos of his weight gain until now.

Battling various health problems caused his weight to soar, he wrote, as he introduced a series of videos titled 60-Day Rehabilitation Practice Plan. The vlogs, which are posted on his Facebook daily, document his exercise regimen and health struggles, as well as offer insights into his mental well-being.

Wang revealed his weight gain was a result of not being able to exercise after the operations. Also, side effects from medication greatly affected his metabolism.

“I eat very little, but I am still fat,” he shared, adding that he could only do stretching and minimal cardio exercises.

He also said he tipped the scales at 126kg in June but has since lost 25kg. His goal is to build confidence, he said, and to slowly return to his weight before surgery.

He also joked in one of the videos that he empathised with pregnant women who had to carry extra weight. “So this is how it feels to have a 20kg tummy,” he said as he performed leg raises in a gym.

Wang, a leukaemia survivor, hopes the videos will encourage his followers to “face life’s challenges head-on”.

He said: “My dream is to go back to who I was 10 to 20 years ago. I had doubts before, but I now believe I can do it.”

 

第四天打卡啦,嗨!我的朋友你们在吗?先报告今天的心得。今天我终于可以体会,多年来多少同学,在做操时,有一个动作,叫向下抱膝。做这个动作时,如果,蹲下抱膝时,脸部或是头部,碰不到膝盖的那种,痛苦与苦脑。哇!哇!哇!今天我体会到了。因为20年来,我从来没有碰不到过,然而今天在抱膝时,我的脸完全碰不到我的膝盖。并且后脚跟也碰不到地,说实话非常难受,痛苦、是真的痛苦、同时,这也证明自己是严重肥胖。在蹲下起来的过程当中,心脏🫀又是多么不舒服。各位亲爱的的同学,老师自己20年后,遇到这样的病痛、环境、手术,我依然相信“基督徒正常规律的生活”能够使我恢复正常状态。我们彼此祝福吧,快乐的活下去,明天见!
