『Fox News』が伝える所によると、カナダ・オンタリオに住む73歳のジョアン・マクドナルドさんは、ダイエットを開始した2017年1月には、体重が198ポンド(約90kg)あったが、およそ1年で55ポンド(約25kg)の減量に成功。高血圧や高コレステロールなどで治療薬を飲んでいたが、健康状態が回復し、薬を飲む必要が無くなったという。

ジョアンさんが、『Daily Mail』に語った所によると、薬での治療に加え、膝の状態が悪く、イスから立ち上がるのも困難だった。そこで、生活を変えようと、娘のミシェルさんに協力してもらい、食事やエクササイズを見直したのだという。

ジョアンさんは、『Daily Mail』のインタビューで「ミシェルに考えてもらった献立で、カロリーやプロテイン、炭水化物、良質な脂質を、量を計算しながら採っていました」と語り、エクササイズについては、次のようにコメントした。「"フィットネスの旅"によって、間違いなく、生活の質が改善されました」。

ジョアンさんは、目標体重まで減量に成功したものの、彼女が言う、"フィットネスの旅"はこれでは終わらいようだ。「ジャンクフードやファストフードから遠ざかって、今までより、良い時間を過ごしています。エクササイズに関しては、常に変化や改善の余地があるから、続けていきたいです」。

ジョアンさんは、ミシェルさんと共に、「trainwithjoan」というインスタグラムアカウントで、日々のトレーニングの動画や、ダイエットのビフォーアフターの画像を投稿している。

It's great to be able to do these again with some heavier weight. I had to take a break from over head presses for about a month or so because my upper back was bothering me. Sometimes just backing off from certain exercises, doing some extra mobility work, and seeing a good chiropractor or massage therapist can work wonders. Here I'm doing DB shoulder presses at 17.5 lbs. I don't let my elbows go below my shoulders to protect my shoulders from injury (I'm 73!!) and I try to really squeeze my shoulders and control the motion to get more effect each rep. What's your favorite way to train shoulders? . . #fitover #agingbackwards #silverhair #shoulders #girlswithmuscle #girlswholift #fitspo #inspo

A lot of you keep asking me how I got started. I know for those of you just beginning with this, it all seems so overwhelming and maybe you doubt yourself, and wonder if you have what it takes. I know sometimes those doubts and fears can take the wind right out of your sails before the boat even gets a chance to leave the harbor. Well, I'm here to tell you that you CAN do it, that you DO have what it takes and that all the changes that this long journey will entail will be worth it. 💕 . When I look back I find it difficult to remember exactly what motivated me to get started. At this point I need an old photograph or video to really remind me of where I started from. But when I really go back in time I can catch little glimpses..I start to remember how angry and easily upset I used to be, how frustrated and disheartened I used to feel. I never let people take photos of me because I couldn't accept where I was and yet, I also couldn't seem to change. It was a very tough place to be, and I stayed in that place for a very long time. It was a night just after New Years when I had my breakthrough. My daughter was home for a powerlifting meet, and she must have tried everything in the books to try to get me onboard with her online training program for women. She was very worried about my health, and especially because she found out I was taking pills for my heart. I remember she made up a little chant for me to help me get out of my head, and into my heart. I think at some point we can become our own worst enemy, and lose faith in our ability to take care of ourselves and to make a change for the better. I love to sing, and the words of the chant were: "My life, my body, is a gift to the Lord". We sang it over and over again, and I cried. For me, it really helped me tap into something greater than myself. Thinking that the work I faced was a duty I owed to a force greater than me helped me out of that dark place. That idea, plus hard work, helped get me to where I am now. If my journey can help some of you light your own candle and get going, then I am at peace knowing I've helped you in some small way.
