Now in a post to her fans, Joan has revealed why she first turned to fitness to finally achieve happiness.
She wrote: "One of the reasons I decided to get back into shape was because I wasn't able to do my favourite things any more.
"When you start a transformation journey like this it's important to figure out your 'why'.
"And your 'why' needs to be powerful enough to pull you along towards your goal with excitement and passion."
Joan claimed it was never about looking better, but to feel her best.
She added: "That still drives me to do what needs to be done day in-day out.
"I don't like how it feels to have no energy, to huff-and-puff walking up stairs, to not be able to swing my leg up over my bike seat.
"I'm never going back! This is how I'm going to live out the rest of my years: healthy, happy, and vibrant."
In her post, Joan encouraged fans to take a moment to "connect with your own why".
She concluded: "When you reflect on these questions and get clear about your why, you'll find yourself much more likely to stay excited about doing the things that need to get done. I promise you!"
Since she opened up to her admirers, the post racked up over 18,400 likes in the space of two days.
One fan gushed: "So true! You can enjoy life so much more when you feel good!"
While another added: "Oh yes, the FEELING BETTER is what it is all about. Looking beautiful Joan."
