In addition to the seemingly never-ending drama between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice, viewers of Season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have also watched as Caroline Manzo’s daughter Lauren painfully struggles to lose weight.

Lauren has been in a battle to maintain a healthy weight nearly all her life, and so far this season she has taken extreme measures — only drinking a few shakes a day — to say goodbye to the extra pounds.

In a blog post, Caroline even mentioned that a “recent change” in Lauren’s life made her “depressed, angry and distant”, and although Caroline didn’t really go into any further detail, she does say that she and her husband Albert were “worried sick” over their daughter.

However, recent pictures show a very happy, and much trimmer Lauren, enjoying life. On May 6, Caroline posted the above picture of her three kids to her Facebook page, writing, “Look at my beautiful beautiful girl.”

Proud aunt Jacqueline Laurita was quick to call attention to Lauren’s weight loss as well,  recently tweeting, “You should see how AMAZING lauren looks right now!!!! She lost a lot of the weight that she wanted to lose.”

Thankfully, it looks as if the hardest part of Lauren’s battle with her weight may be over. Congrats, girl, you look fabulous!
