My oh my what a difference 3 years and 65 lbs can make! 😅 . I can vividly remember those bicep curls in the first video taken in the first week of my transformation journey with @yourhealthyhedonista . Michelle kept barking at me to pull my stomach in and keep my eyes open. I was beginning to think she was trying to kill me 😛 I was in Mexico, it was hot and humid, and I was suffering from hypertension and acid reflux. I also had vertigo which has also gone away along with the other issues since getting back in shape. 🎉 I have so much gratitude to that gal on the left who slugged it through all of those issues plus low self-esteem but who stayed the course, allowing me to be where I am today. 🥳 I look back to those years with the utmost gratitude and awe, and I promise to her that all my actions and attitudes today will pay respect to her hard work and her big dreams. I will never take my health or my habits for granted again! Let’s all fall in love with the work that has to be done to bring us the freedom and the joy and the energy that we want to experience every day 💕💪 #olderandwiser . @womensbestwear True Top in Red 💕💕

Joan frequently posts her workout sessions on her Instagram page with her daughter Michelle MacDonald, who also happens to be a professional fitness coach. A typical workout might include everything from weight training to running on a beach, proving that age really is just a number.

In a recent Instagram post, Joan imparted words of wisdom to her followers'. Detailing how she came to start her journey, she wrote:

“When I first started out on my transformation journey, I hated trying on clothes, and in fact most of my clothes barely fit me any more so I had just a few bottoms and tops to choose from. Baggy shorts and over-sized t-shirts in boring colors were my go-to. I didn’t love myself back then and that’s how I dressed myself. I used to think 1) I didn’t deserve beautiful clothes and 2) nothing nice would fit me anyway, especially at my age.

“It wasn’t until my daughter insisted that I buy some new workout clothes and took me shopping at @forever21 that I understood that that mindset wasn’t working for me. When I saw myself in flattering clothes in cute colors, I could see that my inner dialogue had to go. I actually had muscles! I actually had a good shape taking form! I felt so good inside to see that in those new clothes."

Let’s talk about gym style, something I never would have considered to be important even just two years ago... When I first started out on my transformation journey, I hated trying on clothes, and in fact most of my clothes barely fit me any more so I had just a few bottoms and tops to choose from. Baggy shorts and over-sized t-shirts in boring colors were my go-to. I didn’t love myself back then and that’s how I dressed myself. I used to think 1) I didn’t deserve beautiful clothes and 2) nothing nice would fit me anyway, especially at my age. It wasn’t until my daughter insisted that I buy some new workout clothes and took me shopping at @forever21 that I understood that that mindset wasn’t working for me. When I saw myself in flattering clothes in cute colors, I could see that my inner dialogue had to go. I actually had muscles! I actually had a good shape taking form! I felt so good inside to see that in those new clothes. 💛Even though it might seem like something superficial like clothing can’t have a big impact on how we see ourselves it absolutely can my dears! If I can learn that lesson in my seventies you can too. Now you won’t catch me heading to the gym (or my living room as the case may be 😅) without taking the time to chose a favorite outfit. My daughter tells her clients, “you have to invest the same love and compassion for yourself at the START of your transformation that would to your own daughter if she was in your shoes. You would encourage her, compliment her on her successes no matter how small, and you would treat her to some workout clothes that were flattering, wouldn’t you? So learn to do that for yourself, and replace that negative inner dialogue with a positive one”. Now I’m sharing this with you. 💕 Please don’t wait til you’re “perfect” to take pride in yourself. You have to already see your perfection, your effort and your courage today. Love yourself enough to change, and show yourself that love daily. On the right I’m wearing one of my favorite outfits by @womensbest . If you have any questions please ask below, and share your favorite gym-wear brands with each other! With Love Joan 💗 . #womenbest #womensbestwear
