The 61-year-old confessed to having suffered from weight balance issues all her life, in one of her videos. “My relationship with weight and with the body was never very good. My father was obese, so I spent my whole life fighting with weight balance,” she revealed. She gained more weight during pregnancy and found it hard to lose weight.

Undergoing breast and ab surgeries in 2004 didn’t solve her issues, as she gained all the weight back a couple of years later. But at 53, she was diagnosed with chondromalacia in both her knees and had to start training. Ever since Bousquet has been a consistent gym-goer and is now leading her best life.
