Recently, netizens are sharing the story of an old woman who is over 70 years old trying to lose weight to own an hourglass body. She is also a pretty hot character on MXH. On her website, Joan writes a motivational sentence: “If I can do it, you can too.”
Accordingly, when she turned 70, Joan noticed that her health had weakened, her legs were arthritis, and walking up the stairs was also very difficult. Normally, other grandmothers would take time to rest and limit travel, but Mrs. Joan was different. She chose to invest in her physical and mental health.
It is known that in the past, Mrs. Joan also had a normal lifestyle like other elderly people. However, until the doctor informed her that she would have to take more medicine if she kept her condition like this. At this time, Michelle – her daughter was very sad, she cried while advising her mother to have a healthier lifestyle, otherwise she would have to go to a nursing home.
So Joan joined a group of women who wanted to change their habits just like her. Gradually, because of her hard work, her achievements at the gym improved day by day, and the weight began to decrease. In less than 4 years, Joan has lost nearly 40kg and reached her desired weight. At the same time, she also noticed that the body had a better change, so she would maintain this exercise regimen.
“If I don’t follow this lifestyle, my health will be very bad. I don’t want to end my life in a hospital or a nursing home,” Joan said.
Although she knew that she started practicing too late and progress was slow, Joan was determined, did not give up and believed that her hard work would be rewarded. Now, she feels like a different person. Because of her knowledge about exercise and building a healthy diet, her health is getting better and better.
It is known that she eats 5 meals a day, takes supplements and exercises 5 days a week. She spends time on two weekends to rest and relax with her family.
Wanting her to connect with more people, her daughter Joan created an Instagram account for her mother and the number started to grow as she shared her story. Although currently has received more than 1 million followers, but because of “technology blindness”, Ms. Joan encountered many difficulties. Using Instagram is a difficult task, but she does not give up and still regularly tells her journey to everyone.
However, she always tries to learn more, because she feels that she has learned a lot from her journey to regain her health, which she wants to help and inspire other elderly friends. Mrs. Joan always encourages her friends that this is not easy, but with confidence and perseverance, it can be done.
“I know it’s hard to change your habits. But the change is worth it and you should stick with it. When you’re just starting out, just do what you can. Take a walk, for example. 3 blocks. Start with regular walking until you’re ready to exercise more. I also recommend tracking your daily food and water intake with a free app,” she said. Joan shared.
