At 73, passion and discipline for exercise have made Joan MacDonald a sensation on social media, where she shares advice and motivational messages.
Her health problems and her dependence on medications to control blood pressure, cholesterol and arthritis, in addition to being overweight, led this 5-foot-3-inch woman to take the initiative to transform her life three years ago.
She began her transformation process thanks to her daughter Michelle, who was concerned about her health and invited her to join a support group of women through the Internet who were also working to change their negative habits, she says on her website.
“When I started, I never imagined that I would be where I am today. I just wanted to get my health back and stop the medications. Every door we go through leads to another door and then to another,”he wrote on his Instagram account.
Joan, a Canadian national, has more than half a million followers on Instagram and more than 23,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, platforms that she uses to share her exercise routine, tips and healthy meals.
In addition, he told an online portal that thanks to his intense physical work in the gym, he has lost more than 50 pounds, considerably increased his self-esteem and is no longer dependent on medicines thanks to his discipline and balanced diet.
