MacDonald cambió sus hábitos a raíz de una crisis matrimonial que le produjo depresión hace 3 años. Desde entonces ha bajado cerca de 30 kilos, gracias a la motivación de su hija Michelle, quien es entrenadora de personas mayores de 40 años. Actualmente entrena cinco veces a la semana con ejercicios de pesas y yoga.

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 💕💕
