【看CP學英文】加拿大安大略省73歲奶奶喬安・麥克唐納在IG爆紅,70歲以前她從未踏進健身房,然而,逐漸衰弱的身體狀況引發女兒的關心,如今,麥克唐納在短短三年間體重已經從原本90公斤減到61公斤。

Joan MacDonald didn’t start going to the gym until her 70s’ but decided to give it a go after her daughter had a heart-to-heart discussion with her regarding her increasing health problems. Thanks to MacDonald’s daily workout, she has now cut her weight from 200lbs (90.7 kg) to 135lbs (61.2 kg) in just 3 years time. 

麥克唐納於IG上紀錄每天的健身過程,時不時也會分享健身小撇步,幫助並鼓勵她的追蹤者一起開始邁向更健康的人生。

麥克唐納於網站上分享,三年前的她服用藥物改善高血壓和胃食道逆流等症狀,同時也經常水腫,導致患有關節炎的她連走下樓梯都會感到疲憊。

According to MacDonald’s website, she was on medication for high blood pressure and acid reflux, and also suffered from edema, arthritis and fatigue. She also had trouble doing everyday physical activities, such as walking down the stairs.

後來麥克唐納下定決心要改變,請教女兒如何用手機記錄自己的體態,開始踏上健身道路,而她也在過程中發現,應該先學會愛自己,再從健身過程找回自信。

MacDonald eventually asked her daughter to show her how to document her fitness process on her iPhone. She was surprised to discover that working out needed to start from loving oneself.

麥克唐納於IG上揭露自己一直以來都缺乏自信,隨著年齡增長,更放縱自己不再選擇好看的衣服,也讓身材走樣。

MacDonald revealed that she had always lacked confidence and as she became older, she gradually gave up choosing flattering clothes to wear and let her bodyweight go up.

然而,經過三年的訓練過程,她學會愛自己,更勇於接收新事物,也放下了不必要的包袱和情緒,讓身心靈都更健康。

However, in her three years of training, she has learned to “love herself, be more open to changes and let go of baggage and emotions that don’t serve her.”

「如果我做得到,你們一定也做得到。」麥克唐納在他個人IG帳號PO文鼓舞83萬名粉絲們。

“If I can do it, you can do it,” MacDonald has told her 838,000 followers.
