I have always carried extra pounds no one who knows me will describe me as "slim". I have never really had a sweet tooth thank God!! In 2010 I lost 20kg on the Atkins .... it felt good whilst it lasted but I certainly couldn't stay away from carbs so the weight crept up. โ˜น๏ธFast forward March 2017 I just felt low and unhealthy nothing fitted and I got tired so easily ..a couple of friends told me about April Laugh and I decided to give it a try .... ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝwithin weeks I was hooked. I could have breakfast , lunch , dinner and snacks without feeling guilty and it was balanced. I sleep better my lab results which once showed a high cholesterol level is now normal๐Ÿ˜ฉ. I look and feel good. My journey isn't over but I am certainly not where I started. I can't sing your praises enough...you have proven that distance is certainly not a barrier to achieve if your goals. I am in Ghana you are in London but you are always there to lead the way ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

For over a decade, I saw the weight creeping up on me and I couldn't do anything about it. I hated it but I didn't even know where to start. Fast forward to October 2016, weighing a whopping 105kgs, with high blood pressure, no self confidence and feeling miserable about my body, while I was browsing instagram, I came across @fitmrsfats and saw some amazing transformations! I was impressed but I still didn't believe I could do it. One fine afternoon, while eating ice cream and cake ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ฑ in bed after work, I sent her an email. She got back to me and gave me all the details. I threw caution to the wind and signed up with her. When she got my body statistics and told me I had to lose 33kgs ๐Ÿ˜ข, I almost told her that wouldn't be possible so I was no longer interested. But I encouraged myself and told myself to take it a day at a time. She made me write down my goals, and I said I wanted to lose the 33kgs in 12 months. So we started! After two weeks, I had lost 4.8 kgs! That was when I knew I was in the right place!!! ๐Ÿ‘. Six and a half months later, I've lost the weight and at my ideal healthy weight! To say I feel good is an understatement! I feel AWESOME! I feel STRONG! My blood pressure has normalised! I'm in a better place!
Believe me, if I can do it, you can do it too!
It takes a lot of discipline and dedication but it's doable. The people doing it don't have two heads or four legs!
As much as we invest in clothes, shoes, expensive wigs etc, we must invest in our health too!
Thank you very much April @fitmrsfats and all the amazing ladies on this journey! We did this together! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

When I first met Lola, I was taken aback. She was so friendly, sounded like she'd known me for years. Lols. Usually Nigerian women aren't like that- you know yourself!๐Ÿ˜‚However when she started to ask me questions about my goals, my challenges and then told me we had work to do, I knew she meant business-very professional,100% on the ball! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ I started gradually, setting my personal goals. My workout sessions a week but couldn't burn so much calories. Gradually I increased the calorie burn as my stamina improved and now, I can work out for an hour continuously- what a wawu- ๐Ÿ˜‚
Food prep was a challenge too but when I struggled-I called coach and by the time I finished talking to her, I understood the problem and the solution. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ The motivation on the group is amazing. These women are mothers, professionals and entrepreneurs and still had time to make everyday count! So, I knew I had to up my game- no excuses. On days I felt I wanted to take a break, someone will post their sweatfie, transformation picture and that will be the end of the idea of a break- lols. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

What I have discovered about myself so far is that I have tenacity and it's transpired into other areas of my life and I have dear Lola to thank for it. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸฝIt's truly a lifestyle change journey and the journey continues (watch this space ๐Ÿ‘™

When my husband was ready to start his journey, there was no stopping him! He lost 40kg in 10months, his determination to succeed on his journey was clear, his goals were realistic and with my help he achieved them in a flash.

Tomike

Trying to control my weight had been a struggle for as long as I can remember .
I was a very โ€œwell fed โ€œ baby, you see that toddler who always has an extra bottle of milk โ€ฆ.that was me.
When we were in Uni ,being a size 16 I vividly remember arguing with Yello that I couldnโ€™t get any bigger she laughed and told me she'd remind me when I got bigger. Sadly she got her chance .
I`ve tried quite a number of diets (including the very low calorie diets with soups and shakes ), I'd lose some Kgs but they always seemed to go find more friends and settle right back in,so I almost gave up.
Early this year at a nice, round size 22 I decided to give weight loss one more try and if it didnโ€™t work, well I figured that meant God wanted me to remain well fed.
As luck would have it, around that time my sister introduced me to April but I must confess I didnโ€™t think it would work especially when we calculated my BMI and I needed to lose 36 Kg(like that`s a whole person ๐Ÿ˜ซ).In my mind I was like โ€ฆโ€ฆnever going to happen but then I thought โ€ฆโ€ฆlet me just try .
Honestly that was the best and healthiest decision Iโ€™ve ever made. First thing I learnt was that it`s not about just weight loss but a lifestyle change, that way Iโ€™d be able to lose the weight steadily and most importantly keep the weight off after getting to my ideal weight. Initially I wasnโ€™t easy ,in fact many times I asked myself โ€ฆwho send you work ๐Ÿ˜‚but with the support of the Coach and amazing April Laugh Sisters (Shout out fab fitfam ) Iโ€™ve been able to take it one day at a time and now Iโ€™m over 30kg down โ€ฆโ€ฆYay.๐ŸŽ‰
Iโ€™m not where I want to be but I now I know itโ€™s very possible ,I just need to stick to my lifestyle change journey and Iโ€™ll get there. Thanks April for helping me turn my life around.

Chizoba

I am currently in my 15th week of LifestyleChangeWithApril and we call ourselves the postgraduates (people who say on after the initial 12 weeks). Paying to stay on was the easiest decision I ever made because I know I'm investing in my life. I like to complain ๐Ÿ˜‡ especially when my alarm goes off in the morning or I get strangled by my sports bra or you realise that jumping squats are a thing BUT BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I'M LIVING MY BEST LIFE. I no longer frequently fall ill and I haven't used my inhaler ever since I started. You see changes on a cellular level. So if you want to activate your best life with an awesome group of like minded people and a Coach that has the widest range of avatars and expressions I've ever seen them come and join us. She will be your motivator, your cheerleader and your conscience especially when you see this ๐Ÿ‘€ pop up on your screen ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ You are stuck with me for a year Coach, I'm blessed to take this journey with you and our awesome sisters.

People can't believe when I tell them it's not a DIET! One of the things I can't believe is that I can wear trousers and jump suits ๐Ÿ˜ณI used to be all about skirts and dresses as my hips just didn't allow me to pull off trousers but I bought a jumpsuit from Urban Outfitters the other day and was like -Wow!!!! I looked ๐Ÿ˜ŠBest part is that I am loving this journey! So thank you so so much! If it was painful - starvation type diet, I would not have lasted but it's so normal and sustainable!!!

Yetunde

High moments for me were a lot... First was when i complained to SistLola( Yes, I call her Sist because she bears same name with my Mum and i see her as my Big Sist lol) that i wasn't seeing any progress and she had to do a collage of before meets 4weeks later and the women on the group were encouraging pointing out the changes that i failed to see.
A lot of my friends commenting and seeing the changes earlier than i even noticed and just hearing people say "Yetty, show us the way now" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Infact my name is now Yetty Slim๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
I won't say the Journey has been easy but it's definitely WORTH it!!
Whenever you are discouraged, think back to the reason you started! One thing that works for me is that I go to the Instagram page and just look through the pictures for extra motivation.
But i'll also advice that if you happen to fall for the Orobo foods and you know deep within that you will definitely go back if the temptation comes back, then talk to Sist Lola about it. I know she'll give you the amount of extra Calories to burn or the number of jump ropes that you owe her and it might seem like she is punishing you; but she's definitely helping out because next time when you see such, you'll think back to the time when you had to do the punishment and you'll run ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Tosin

A friend introduced me to April Laugh but since I had started a month prior by myself to making small changes regarding living a healthier lifestyle, I felt I didn't need AL. My husband told me WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE BY JOINING? Boy, am I so glad that I joined in April because 12 wks later, I have lost over 50 lbs. Money well spent I tell ya. My workout regimen and healthy eating habits went from 0 to 100 immediately I began. The love and support one experiences in the group from the ladies is phenomenal. I love a group of women from around the world that I have never physically met, that is amazing. My coach of life created a dynamic bizness model that works for all who join which yields great successes. The simple formula of eating right and staying active works, NO hidden pill, slimming tea or magic potion. I have not reached my goal weight but appreciating the journey down. God brought about this season for a specific purpose and I am grateful for what He is doing

My struggle has always been with accountability. I've always known how to workout and eat right but for some reason I'm entirely dependent on a support system for encouragement. That's what the LifestyleChangeWithApril gave to me - a sisterhood with a common goal of creating the best versions of ourselves. In addition to being that virtual voice of encouragement, I learned how to take my eating habits and workout routines to the next level. If you commit to this program, truly commit to the lifestyle, you will absolutely see results. There is no magic, no tea, no wrap, it is all up to you to decide that you want to change your life and put in the work. I'm grateful for the group and program - seeing the everyday woman have visible results was a major motivation for me. That alone let me know that it is possible for me. Seeing real people, not celebrities, who have the same struggles and busy schedules as me put on a bikini and drop sizes is uplifting! If you're thinking about joining, just do it. You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain and you are worth it! Coach will not give up on you as long as you don't give up on yourself. And even if you do, there is an army of women cheering you on and encouraging and praying for you, so you can't fail

I woke up one day and just hated how I looked! I had spent the last 4 or 5 years making excuses while the weight was piling up... I was honestlytrying to lose weight but I guess I wasn't doing the right things. October 2016 I decided I was tired of hating my body...found @fitmrsfats who is not just a coach but is my sister now, truly...and she whipped me into shape...no excuses allowed!
The rest is history...20+kilos down, everyone's begging me to stop...I'm loving my body...I'm loving my new lifestyle...my health is so much better...just realised I haven't taken most of my meds in the last 2 months and my energy level is off the charts...and of course my confidence has taken a boost!
I'm sure loving the new me...watch this space for the ๐Ÿ‘™๐Ÿ‘™๐Ÿ‘™photos soon

Wow! What a journey it's been so far, and we're not even done yet! Following a recommendation from my friend, Kemi, I joined April Laugh's FitFam around the same time I moved to a new country to start a new job. At the time, I knew I was already overweight (for my frame) and was concerned about how it would deteriorate with the travelling lifestyle of my new job. I knew it was time to make radical change and Lola's magic formula was what I needed. I've truly seen a change in my mentality towards food (happily making better choices) and working out. I can barely believe that I run now (I've hated running for the longest time), and dare I say that, I'm enjoying it! I'm not yet at my target weight but I'm pretty excited about the progress we've made so far! Yes, 'we' - Lola and my motivational sisters in the FitFam. Lola, may God continue to bless you and expand your empire! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ Ps. There's no magic! It's simply a lifestyle change and I'm bikini ready!!!

Lams

A few weeks back I was going through google photos and stumbled on my pictures from year 2013 to 2015 and I had a good laugh asking myself Lamide were you ever this fat. I was in serious denial ... I'm not all that fat, if I can loose like 5kg I'm good๐Ÿ˜‚. In 2014 I relocated for work and I used this time to work on myself in every area. On this day I sat by the pool at my hotel and took a selfie then I saw the fat steering straight at me...lol this was the day I said I'm done with Cambridge diet, master cleanse, etc. this year I decided to go the healthy route.. boy it wasn't easy cos I am a big foodie. I started skipping and did a few workout videos. After awhile i felt I needed an expert to guide me . so I contacted @fitmrsfats who guided me with meal and work out plans.
April has been my number one supporter till date. April was mean, lams excuses won't burn calories, etc.It took me years to get to where I am now. why all this story, my friend said i had to post some pictures to inspire people. I'm not a weight loss expert o. Have I hit my goal weight? YES..but my weight fluctuates a lot so I might add a few kgs and loose it a few weeks after. I'm just trying to stay healthy.
All I'm saying is you can do it, you just need to make up your mind and stay dedicated. The lazy days will come, days that you want to eat the whole house, days that you can't be bothered and the days that you are gingered to workout. Take each day as it comes and you will be fine.

Esse

I so much wanted to get rid of the tummy fat and shed some weight, I wanted it so bad that I bought patches, tea, coffee, waist trainer; just name all the shed-it-fast schemes you know. It all resulted to nothing; the most I got from one of them was loosing 3kg. Signing up with the LifestyleChangeWithApril was going to be my last try at loosing weight, thank God that I did try... look at me now!! I'm really surprised at myself! Our work didn't go to waste....Eating and staying healthy is my new lifestyle ... no going back

TK

After having my second child, I struggled to shift the weight gained during pregnancy especially in my tummy area; before the kids came along I weighed 10st (65kg), after baby No.2 I crept up to 12.5st (80kg). Iโ€™m not the sort of person that enjoys going to the gym & I also need constant motivation to workout. In the past have bought workout DVDs & exercise equipment which I never used, tried watching what I ate by not having breakfast, sometimes skipping lunch then having dinner. It became a real concern for me when I struggled to fit into most of my clothes, looked fat in pictures and since I had promised myself that 1) I wasnโ€™t going up a dress size, 2) I wanted to keep looking young at 40 & beyond 3) my 10th year wedding anniversary was also coming up & wanted to look good not frumpy, so I was really keen to get the right kind of help.

I came across April on Instagram, someone had reposted her a video of her working out while pregnant & that caught my attention, so I checked out her page and discovered she had a blog. I visited her blog & totally liked her spirit, so I decided to contact her and here I am on this healthy lifestyle journey. In the last 3.5 months I have lost about 7kg, I work out at least 4 times a week, when I go running or jogging I do at least 5K as a minimum (the last time I did a 5K anything was โ€˜Race for Llifeโ€™ in 2013 & I just walked!), I eat healthy (most of the time J) and in right proportions, Iโ€™m beginning to get a better fit in my clothes, people are commenting on how good I look and one of the highlights of joining Aprilโ€™s Laugh Fitness, is the amazing & awesome ladies that motivate, push & inspire me daily to achieve my goals!

I gained all the weight back after a random diet. I lost all my confidence, tried doing the weight loss on my own and all the no success. Then I came across the ABLE @FITMRSFATS as my very good friend and sister has enrolled on to her programme and the difference in the before and after pictures spoke VOLUME. My friend took so much time to explain how the plan worked and said many good things about April. After discussions with my husband, I promised myself this would be my last bus stop. It all started from an email to April. From her prompt response to her constant support and availability, it has been an amazing journey so far. I was excited when I saw the meal plan she provided. I was like โ€˜ehn so I can eat naija food and lose the weight!! Oya, letโ€™s go there!โ€™ So I started embracing the meal prepping and this definitely kept me on track. I had all the equipment I required to embark on this journey (apart from my watch) and just immediately got straight into it. The first weigh-in, I was quite nervous as I hadnโ€™t stepped on the scale for two weeks and was really excited to see the weight drop by 4.5kg by just eating right, exercising and drinking water.
The experience has been totally amazing and I know there is no looking back from here. I am far from where I need to be but I am confident I will get there as I take each day at a time. April has made me realise that I can put my mind to do whatever I want to accomplish. It would be very unfair to not give credit to whom credit is due. The ladies in the group are just beyond AMAZING!!! The support is seriously out of this world, I have never seen such in my life.
April and my lovely ladies, you guys rock!!! I look forward to the rest of this journey with every one of you. I am nowhere near where I need to but I am glad I am not where I used to be. My energies are right up there, I enjoy working out and carrying out my own

Exercise is my friend, my struggle was with my meals until I met April aka Coach of Life. She took time to explain what April lifestyle change was all about & also addressed some concerns I had. The Meal plan is great & the support from loads of amazing ladies going on the same journey with you makes your lifestyle change attainable. Thank you so much Coach.

Seeing the after picture makes a whole lots of difference...consistency, determination and hard works does pay .... I had brought a whole lot of size 14 dresses just before I got pregnant with my last child and one of my main reason for joining the LifestyleChangeWithApril was to just be able to fit into them.....now they are too big and I'm wearing a size 12. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸฝI'm still far from my goal but I have enjoyed every minute so far. The meal plan is exceptional and this is indeed a life style change for me on all levels .... I now go for healthy food choices, run 10k and jump rope like 5k! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ The energy is unlimited ....Thank you to Aprillaugh for making this journey possible and a big thanks to the AL Fithive for all the encouragement and motivation ......Love and appreciate you all.

When you look younger as you get older. Keeping fit and staying healthy is one of the personal goals I set some months ago after my milestone birthday. I can't remember how I dabbled on April Laugh's page on IG, the results were beyond my belief so I decided to contact her. It's been a life changing experience, I feel great and energetic all the time. My fitness and endurance has improved tremendously, from brisk-walking to running half- marathon without stopping. I'm more knowledgeable about healthy food choices and lifestyle.

Zita

Aprilllll, I can't begin to tell you my feelings right now. I'm more confident in myself. This is hands down the best gift I could've given myself. I've always wanted to look like the person in the after picture & thought it was impossible for me to get there. Just seeing my progress from day 1 to now is mind blowing. Almost everyone who knew about me getting on this journey was skeptical but I told myself "Zita surprise yourself, encourage yourself". I told myself I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I vividly remember that first day (Monday 4/3) I woke up early, which is unlike me, to go to the gym. Going to the gym and exercising has been a laziness of mine. Look at me now, weeks later I can run 100 miles, burn over 600/day in 1hr & do more exercises. Two or 3 weeks ago at my aunt's party all I keep getting is "wow, look at Zita, she's slimmed down, she looks even younger & more beautiful"
Thank you so much Lola, for your words of encouragements, for pushing me & the ladies. You are a God sent really because when I saw your page & keep seeing all the changes in the ladies, something was telling me "email her, you will see how great you will feel. You can do this Zita, just believe you can, I'm with you". If it's not Jesus/God talking to me then, then I don't know who it was, because it definitely was God. May He continue to bless & rule your household. May he continue to give you more ideas to help us all. I'm not where I am yet but I'm sure I'll get there. Since the beginning of this year I told myself even if it takes me until December to lose weight, I'll get there. Aprillaugh has just got me pumped up for it. Im not only losing weight on Aprillaugh but I'm also having so much fun doing it & most of all I've gained so many sisters in the process.

Adesola

I came across AL in 2014 on Instagram. I remember contacting her after I had my first son via CS. After our discussion, I found out I wasn't mentally ready (lol).
Fast forward to 2016, I had my second son via CS, and by now, I knew I had to take myself (health, posture, stature) seriously. I had put on so much weight, that I was obese! I had an on-off High BP era. A tummy that looked like I was still pregnant!
When contacting April this time around, I was more than ready to start! By now, April had had her baby, and that through CS! Plus, her lifestyle was convincingly inspirational (LOL). My baby was three months old by December 2016, and I got in touch with Lola, I couldn't get a space till January!
Voila! January saw me on the program!
I'm grateful to God I did start. The group was LIT with real life people, going through real life transformation! Still going strong on the Lifestyle Change with April.
I've lost 17kgs, and several inches off my waist. People are begging me to stop, but I didn't start because of them! Hahaha... Cheeky I know (winks)

I was looking for a fitness programme that would push me to achieve my fitness goals. I came across April's page and saw different testimonials. So I decided to message her, I immediately got her along with her and fell in love with the support group. If you are looking to lose weight or get fitter, this is where you need to be, there is an incredible group that supports you all the way.
