According to Madeline’s mother, Rosanna, the girl’s sports devotion was caused by the problems at school. Stuart experienced difficulties at physical education classes – she was frustrated she couldn’t be on a par with her peers. This led to health and well-being deterioration. However, a couple of years later, Madeline took her life under strict control. Rosanna said that her daughter had eliminated harmful food from her diet, reduced meals portions, and began to lose weight rapidly.

In addition, Madeline began to swim for an hour a day. The girl's mother shared the weight loss was not the main goal for her daughter, but a slender body definitely gave her more self-confidence and opened new opportunities in the modeling career.

Fabulous transformation

Madeline demonstrated her amazing transformation on her Facebook page.

Three years of hard self-improvement. Now I feel amazing. When I was last examined, the doctor told me that if I continued to lead a healthy lifestyle, I would no longer have to carry out heart surgery again. I'm extremely happy with the results.

Of course, Madeline has something to be proud of, and we can’t help admiring her willpower and perseverance. Nothing gives us more strength and self-confidence than a victory over things that prevented us from conquering the new peaks for a long time!
