Getting my sexy back after having my baby!
2016 will soon be a wrap. Yet, at the beginning of the year, you dreamt of a fab body but the mirror tells you you are now bigger than you were in 2015?
You still have those pictures of celebs with your dream body stuck on your wall, desktop or in your mind, yet daily the scale says otherwise? Your 2016 exercise goal never turned any into concrete transforming lifestyle choices?
I used to be like you. Let me tell you my story.
My name is April Laugh. Three years ago, I discovered the joy of exercise; encountered the power of good meals and its overall positive impact on my health. I became – and still am – a fitness freak. During pregnancy, I worked out – ran 100km; lifted weights and walked until my baby dropped. I felt really comfortable right to the end my pregnancy. I believe that exercise helped a lot with that.
I asked: “what happened to all my pregnancy workouts? How do I care for my baby without taking care of myself? How do I still feel sexy to my husband when I’m not self-confident?”
Today, I am 8 months postpartum and I feel great!
But it’s not just about me, it’s also about the people practicing this lifestyle with me.
At Lifestyle Change With April, we help people interested in the journey to make the right choices. These choices also have a positive impact on their lives. See some of our testimonials below.

Ayo, a new mother, presently on the Lifestyle Change. She has lost over 10kg postpartum.
“My name is Jare, mom of 3 and on the #LifeStyleChangeWithApril. I came across @fitmrsfats on Instagram when I was just about 9weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I am your regular overweight mum, always looking for one fad diet or the other, losing weight and then gaining it all back again. It was a cycle I was tired of. With my two previous pregnancies, I had pre- eclampsia.So when I found out I was pregnant and overweight at the time, I knew I had to take control of my health to avoid complications later in the pregnancy. I don’t remember what drew me to Lola but I found myself sending her an email and before I knew it, I had signed up and we got chatting.” Read the rest on my blog <LINK IN BIO> #fitpregnancy #preeclampsia #pregnancy #pregnant #fitnigeria #orobonodeyreign #healthylifestyle #transformation #weightlossgoals #winner

Akanni, my fiancé then. His weight was unhealthy. He lost over 40kg during our two-year long distance relationship. We are now married and he still takes the right actions to keep weight off.
This is also about you.
Experiences on this journey of life take their toll on our body. You’re not going to stay the way you are forever! At every juncture, it is important to make choices suitable for you on that spot. The way you lived at 20 when you probably weighed 50kg is not the way you will likely live when you’re 40.
Beyond weight loss, do you know that regular exercise has an amazing impact on your health? Do you know that it relieves stress; improves memory; helps you sleep better and boosts your overall mood? Now you know. Now, you should be thinking about what you want to look like tomorrow, and in five, ten years.
You should be asking: what is the lifestyle change I need to make today for the future? If exercise and good food is on your list, then sign up for the Lifestyle Change With April!
In my years of doing this, I have dealt with several questions; here are my top three. And with answers.
I am busy. Where do I get the time?
Our tailor-made weight-loss programme walks with you by the hand to find a schedule that suits your lifestyle. We will show you how to work smarter!
What else do Nigerians eat but carbohydrates like rice, yam and eba? Are you asking me to ditch my swallows? Where will I get healthier food choices without breaking the bank?
There are varieties of healthy ways to eat, even these our carbohydrates. We will go through all you need to know about eating right and eating clean. Healthy meal plans will be tailored to your required daily intake. Soon, you will be a pro at preparing them.
I started a weight loss programme before. How can I stick to my goals?
I will be tracking your fitness progress. In addition, you’ll also be on a small, private group for personal accountability! It is time to get off the couch and hit the road running. Literally.
Weight-loss, like life, is a journey. Like every journey, it starts with the right step in the right direction. Before the step, there is a decision, a choice – on where to go, how to move, where your destination will be.
Our goal at Lifestyle Change with April is to make this journey worthwhile. For us, the trip is as important as the destination.
2017, another journey beckons. Better to hit the road running. Let us make your journey exciting!
