Wendy Weight loss Journey
Wendy has struggled with her weight since her early years. And the fans who have followed her since her early years know this.
She has gone under weight-loss routines multiple times. But it has not proven to work very well. Wendy has also been criticized for her weight.
When she first started her career, her overweight seems to hinder her way. She was rejected by Cube Entertainment just because of her weight.
However, her singing skills outweighed that negative factor. She heard people’s gossips and their negative comments about her weight.
Which would weigh down any normal person. But Wendy did not let those negative forces weigh her down.
Wendy started working on her weight and changed her appearance quite a bit. However, her weight was not stable, whether it was her eating habits or any other reason, we do not know for sure. But we do know is that Wendy struggled a lot with her weight.
She would cut lost some pounds and after few months she would still struggle with weight. A permanent change came in Wendy’s life in 2016.
When in 2016, she returned with her group, Red Velvet, rumors spread all over social media. People passed negative comments on Wendy saying that “she cannot control herself”.
People were comparing Wendy with other singers of the group, who were much slimmer and with great looks.
Wendy finally took the decision of doing something about the negative factor which was causing so many problems for her, her weight.
Because the weight was not only a problem for her appearance, it was also slowing down her performance on the stage as well.
Wendy started her weight loss journey and lost a tremendous amount of weight in just 4 months. There are only a few such examples.
She shocked everyone. Wendy not only shut down the mouths of critics but she also seemed gorgeous in her new look. More gorgeous, I should say. Indeed 4 months is really a short time.

How Wendy lost weight?
When Wendy appeared with her slimmer body many people started asking her how she achieved so much change.
Whenever she was invited to any show, Wendy was always asked by the interviewer to tell something about her weight loss journey.
In one of her interviews, Wendy said “I did a lot of hard work. I know weight loss is not an easy thing. But I had to hurry because there were so many other things to do as well.” You would be surprised to know that Wendy worked on her weight only 2 hours a day. And she achieved this in only 6 months.
In the brief period of 4 months, Wendy did intense workouts and followed a well-planned diet plan, that won achieved her success. What was that workout and diet plan we will discuss now.
When Wendy was asked about her diet plan in an interview (which was the most favorite question of her fans), she mentioned her diet plan.
In breakfast, the Red Velvet member would drink the juice of fresh fruits rather than tea or coffee. Wendy mentioned that she would get lettuce juice with an apple.
When the interviewer asked what would she have in lunch, Wendy said that “I prefer Pumpkin juice in lunch.” As a South Korean, Wendy also loves rice, her lunch would also contain some rice.
Reports say that Wendy did have dinner for a considerable time. She followed that routine until she felt some solid changes in her body.
I would not recommend anyone Wendy’s diet plan. As it doesn’t even cover enough calories an adult woman needs.
Wendy herself follows this diet plan for just 2 to 3 months. As her life was too busy and she had to change her appearance quickly.
But if you are not a singer and do not have to transform yourself accordingly to your band members, then following a slow but healthy diet would be better for your health.
When the word “diet” is mentioned people take its meaning mistakenly as “stop eating” which is not a healthy activity.
Our body needs daily calories, which are for men 2500 and for women 2000. And we should at least cover those calories. We should not stop eating but we definitely should stop eating junk food that is fast food. Healthy food is a need for a healthy body.

Wendy was even stricter on workouts than a diet. After a whole day of work, Wendy would jump over rob 10,000 times to digest what she has eaten all day.
Yes, as I said she was stricter on her workout. Well, it paid her back very greatly. After the exhausting jumping, Wendy would practice dancing for the next hour.
The red velvet star also joined a gym where she would do workouts for 2 hours daily. Wendy also did a lot of walking.
In the end, it seems that her consideration paid her off. Of course after this kind of hard work you got to lose weight in just 4 months.
How much weight has Wendy lost?
With the help of her intense workout, Wendy lost 15 KGs in a short period. She proved that all you need is commitment and discipline. Given the consideration, Wendy was giving, she deserved that change and she got it.
Where is Wendy now?
With that radical change in her physique, Wendy transformed her body for all time. She is back on screen now. With a slimmer body.
She no longer follows that strict diet and workout plan. But she is a lot cautious about what she eats the whole day. Wendy avoids junk and even traditional food in South Korea.
Before & After
As mentioned earlier that Wendy struggled with her weight in her early years. She was facing this problem since her childhood.
However, when she chose the music career it even seems a much bigger problem. And Wendy got the responsibility to do something about it.
As the photos tell all difference. Before starting her weight loss journey, Wendy weighed around 62 KGs. However, after changing her whole routine of the day, Wendy lost 15 KGs. She now weighs 46 KGs.
Wendy was born in Seongbuk Seoul, South Korea. She was a fan of music. Wendy said that when she was only 6 years old, her dream was to become a singer. Wendy went to Canada when she was 5 years old, to study abroad.
She continued her studies in the United States as well. Where she changed her name into the English version, Wendy Shon. On her return to Canada again for higher studies, Wendy attended Richmond Hill High School in Ontario.
When Wendy was in high school, she started considering her childhood dream. She started practicing music. However, her parents were not happy with her choice.
They insisted that she should continue her higher studies and get some professional qualifications. But given Wendy’s passion for music and her love for her dream, her parents finally stepped down and let her pursue her dream.
Wendy first submitted an audition for Koreaboo’s Global Auditions in 2011. She did not make it to the final though.
However, Wendy did not stop there, she continued to audition for. She finally on 1st August of 2014 became a member of Red Velvet. Which was her official debut.
Wendy achieved a lot of fame remaining in the band. She also worked with different artists throughout the time.
When in the January of 2021, Wendy returned on screen after two months. She surprised her fans. She appeared as a co-host of Mysterious Record Shop.
Wendy’s story can be an inspiration for us. In not only the matter of weight loss but in every difficulty we are facing.
However, it should be noted that the way, Wendy followed was in no way a safer one. Avoiding eating dinner and then doing this intense workout can be very harmful to our health.
However, what we should learn from Wendy is determination and consistency. She decided that losing weight was the only aim for the next months and she did it.
Wendy also worked consistently. She did not avoid a day of her routine. Wendy has changed her way of life for the better of the future. And we wish that she stay healthy the way she is now.
