“Trying to control my weight had been a struggle for as long as I can remember. I was a “well fed baby,” you see that toddler who always has an extra bottle of milk… that was me. When we were in uni, being a size 16, I vividly remember arguing with Yello that I couldn’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 kg but they always seemed to go nd 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 didn’t work, well, I gured 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 didn’t think it would work especially when we calculated my BMI and I needed to lose 36 kg (like that`s a whole person). In my mind, I was like… never going to happen but then, I thought… let me just try. Honestly, that was the best and healthiest decision I’ve ever made. First thing I learnt was that it`s not about just weight loss, but a lifestyle change; that way, I’d be able to lose the weight steadily and most importantly, keep the weight off and after getting to my ideal weight. Initially, it wasn’t easy; in fact, many times, I asked myself… who send you work but with the support of the Coach and amazing April Laugh’s sisters (Shout out fab fam) I’ve been able to take it one day at a time and now, I’m over 30kg down… Yay. I’m not where I want to be but now, I know it’s very possible. I just need to stick to my lifestyle change journey, and I’ll get there. Thanks April for helping me turn my life around.”
