Ciudad de México.- Esta es la historia Joan MacDonald, una mujer de Canadá que a sus 73 años se ha convertido en influencer fitness y está causando sensación en Instagram.

Según cuenta Joan, hace un par años ella atravesaba una dura crisis matrimonial que la tenía sumida en una profunda depresión.

Esto, a su vez, le acarreó problemas de salud como artritis, colesterol e hipertensión, así que decidió hacer un cambio radical para mejorar su vida.

Con ayuda de su hija, la entrenadora Michelle MacDonald, en solo tres años Joan logró bajar 25 kilos y tonificar todo su cuerpo.

En una foto del antes y después, Joan explica cómo ha sido este proceso de transformación:

“En este punto, sinceramente, creo que no tenemos límites. En cualquier momento podemos tomar la decisión de cambiar. Sin importar qué tan difícil o retadora sea la vida, debemos mantenernos firmes en nuestro objetivo y seguir adelante.

“Cuando comencé nunca creí que llegaría a donde estoy. Solo quería recuperar mi salud y dejar los medicamentos. Espero que todos sigan eligiendo crecer, aprender a amarse, a cuidarse y atreverse a soñar otra vez"

3 years ago I began this long, slow journey and now I realize that there really isn’t any end to it. Each day I move in a direction based on my choices. Each month is a new milestone. Each year I seem to have changed so completely I think I can’t change any more and yet I do. At this point, I truly realize that we are limitless. At any moment we can make a decision to change. No matter how difficult or challenging life is, we must remain steadfast in our aim and keep inching forward. When I got started I never imagined I’d be where I am today. I just wanted to get my health back and get off my medication. Each door we step through leads to another door and then another. I hope you all keep choosing to grow! To learn to love yourself, take the best care of yourself, and dare to dream and love with your whole heart again. . Pink outfit by @womensbest . . #transformation #hope #justdoit.

I never thought the seventies were going to end up like this! Being in videos in a gym in Tulum Mexico wearing @womensbest ! I am sincerely grateful for all the moments leading up to this. The journey has been long and it’s not over. I have endured many hiccups and frustrations. I have battled fatigue, anger, self-doubt and fear. I have learned to love more, to embrace my body, to be open minded and to push forwards. I hope you all believe that my journey can be anybody’s journey. I did not do gymnastics or any serious sport when I was young. I battled weight most of my adult life. I was seriously overweight for the past twenty years before starting all of this. I have had a hysterectomy when I was in my forties. I am not on Hormone Replacement Therapy. I do not eliminate any food groups. I train 5 x week for about 75 minutes with weights trying to get better each week. I do cardio 4-7 days a week for about 15-30 minutes depending on what my coach wants me to do. I take a few supplements like creatine and protein powder and fish oil but not much else. . Michelle and I will be doing a live video on my instagram tonight at 8 pm EST to answer questions so please join me! With love Joan .
