Counting On fans noticed that Joy-Anna Forsyth look slimmer and really amazing these days. Of course, some of them put it down to her grief over her and Austin losing their first baby. In fact, TV Shows Ace wondered, ahead of that, if Joy-Anna maybe wasn’t overdoing it a bit. Back in June, we noted, “Joy’s about five months pregnant at the moment. She should be able to cope with a walk a few times a week. But, is she doing too much too soon? Back then on IG, Joy said she’s, “Outta Breath & outta shape.” Well, now she seems to have set aside her immediate grief for the baby. And in fact, it could have died for any reason in the womb. Now, she’s focusing on a new exercise plan.

Fans agree that Joy-Anna looks really slim and attractive these days. Now, she explained that she’s back into her exercise program. Plus, she gets to do a lot of it with her son Gideon.

She took to her Instagram and shared a photo of her out and about with Gideon. He sat in the stroller, and Joy stood alongside. Joy captioned it with, “The last few weeks I’ve been trying to be more active.” Explaining further she noted that she sometimes works out “doing a 30 min cardio workout with Jana.” Alternatively, she might “go for a walk,” or do some running. Then she says that “some days it’s just keeping up with Gideon.”

The Counting On star also noted that she loves it. Also, she feels “so much better!🥳” Plus, she’s learned what most people discovered with workouts.

“You’d think working out would wear you out, but it actually gives me more energy!🤩” Actually, she’s spot on with that observation about feeling better. The mbgmovement (Mind Body Green) website noted six reasons why this happens. They explain that “Dopamine, a chemical that plays a role in happiness,” gets released from exercise. Others include how it de-stresses you, energizes, eases anxiety and helps to stop insomnia.
