I am April Lauren, I am a lifestyle vlogger here on YouTube. My channel grew as I started sharing my weight loss journey. I started at 352.8, miserable and at my highest weight ever. I knew I had to change, and I couldn’t keep crash dieting and failing. I am halfway to my weight loss goal of losing 200lbs, and already my life is completely different. Slow and steady has worked for me, and I look forward to continuing my journey. Thanks for encouraging me along my weight loss journey.

  1. This is brillient actually. True long standing weight loss is not a cookie cutter event. Our emotions are very complex and every single weight loss success is a unique process and guess what…..We are so lucky to observe and learn from your experience. By no means should you ever feel that you are being judged for whatever weight you did or did not lose in 2022! You have an amazing story and have accomplished so much already!

  2. Are you going to do the body comp test again now that you’re at the 100lbs down? That was a thing you said you do when you hit 100lbs down.
    I find trusting ones self isn’t a good thing in the beginning if someone has bad habits. Learning the good habits over time. Daily or weekly goals. Simplifying things too.
    If it’s for your health, well-being, and for weight loss you don’t need to make long fancy videos for them. Your subscribers will still watch the videos.

  3. You don’t measure success in pounds or kilograms lost. You measure in the amount of steps you take each day, tha amount of fat loss, on your blood work improvements, on the amount of moments and activities you are able to do an create with your husband and family. You are at your healthiest physically and mentally. You are such an inspiration ❤ I wish you a blessed 2023

  4. Ur amazing April I started weight loss journey in January 2020. In 2021 gain 4pounds it sucks.But 2022 I didn’t gain weight. I wish I had lost. Some weight. Its was a bad year to me too. But we got this. Im so pound of myself that I still going. 2022 here We came. Want to lose 60 pounds. Im so happy for you. I watched you seen the being. Thank you for sharing ur journey.💪☺

  5. Motivation will never be consistent, because things happen in life, and life is hard. April, you won’t always feel motivated. Discipline is the key. Training yourself to realize discipline is not a form of hate, or hating on yourself will be the key to lasting weight loss, and better mental health.

  6. You looked glowing & beautiful at the military ball. The dress you wore was perfect and so flattering. What a cute couple you & the hubs make.💕

  7. No journey is a steady climb up. Everyone will encounter bumps, waves, obstacles and triumphs. I am glad you can see the bigger picture and can be flexible in continuing on. You have come along way! 🙂

  8. 💖 2022 was like a roller coaster for me- highs, lows, and some loopy loops. I’m ready for 2023 to be the year I focus on me. I’m going to look back at some of your older videos- I’m not sure if it was podcasts or videos but your “win the day” strategies were working for me. 🙂

  9. It’s so impressive that you took care of yourself in healthy ways in 2022, even when life knocked you down. That’s tough for me too. It’s hard to start a new year and feel like you have a daunting task ahead. But you have the right attitude and approach, and you’re such an encouragement to me in my journey.

  10. 💕I’ve been here following you from the beginning! I am so proud of you for prioritizing your mental health through this process. I have experienced a lot of yo-yoing with my weight and at my thinnest I was still unhappy and uncomfortable in my body. I am only now working through my own trauma and learning to treat myself with the love and respect I deserve.
    2022 was not great for myself and my family but your video had me thinking back to the good things… which I had forgotten were there. Thank you for sharing

  11. I had the gastric sleeve done in November 2021 and only lost 40 pounds in 2022. It was the most stressful year of my life though so I’m happy any weight came off, honestly. The internet collectively is so often that terrible hateful ex that just wants to hear how terrible things have been going for you since you broke up. At the end of the day, you know you best, you know what works, you know what you’ve been doing, you know what deserves praise, and you know what needs work. We’re all in this together. Much love sending your way ❤️

  12. How do you feel about others implying that you are losing too slowly/not losing or in fact gaining?

    This is your journey, whatever the outcome.
