lets fight holiday fat

Yes, I am guilty as charged. It is just so hard to resist all of the holiday goodies. Whether it be turkey and mashed potatoes or one of many irresistible desserts, the holidays are a time when we eat a bit more than we might normally. After the indulging though, I always feel slightly guilty, and that is when I begin to think about a plan to shed a few pounds in the new year.

Luckily I have a little help getting my plan in gear for the new year. Thanks to alli and Let’s Fight Holiday Fat, I am confident that I will be able to find a plan that is just right for me, and hopefully one that I will stick with. There are plenty of tips and tricks available (which I definitely need!). I love that I can customize the plan for my needs.

When I signed up with Let’s Fight Holiday Fat (it is free to join!), I started creating my own program. The first step was to choose which type of exercise I want to do. Since I cannot do anything rigorous, I chose the Yoga/Pilates option:

Next I chose when I want to start (I will be starting mid-January), I entered my weight, height, age, and my goals. By filling this out, I found out how many calories I am allowed on a daily basis. It couldn’t be easier! They even have a low-fat vegetarian option.

I really love that you can ask questions and get answers from other members too. It is a really helpful community, which is very important for support when trying to lose weight.

I am SO excited about the exercise routines on the website too. Not only do they have oodles of suggestions, but there are videos to show you how to do them properly. They also list how many calories will be burned by doing a particular exercise! I think though, that my favorite part of the Let’s Fight Holiday Fat website is that it gives me a daily schedule. I tend to stick with programs that have everything spelled out for me. In addition to the daily schedule, I can choose to see my weekly schedule, which will allow me to go shopping and have everything I need in advance for my healthy cooking for the week.

Let’s Fight Holiday Fat features:

  • Follow-along fitness videos (which include cross training, yoga/pilates and more!)
  • Reduced calorie & low-fat healthy daily meal suggestions and recipes
  • Custom calorie and activity tracking
  • Community and social features (including forums)
  • Smart phone accessibility
  • Tips and tricks from experts.

After trying a variety of diet plans over the years (some more successfully than others), I am ready to make a change for good.  Not only will I look better but I will feel better.  Now that is something I am looking forward to.  With this program, I kind of feel like I have a personal trainer to keep me on track.  I am so excited with all that the “Let’s Fight Holiday Fat” program has to offer and I know with their help that I can do this!

How about you – are you ready to fight holiday fat too? I really hope you will check out the Let’s Fight Holiday Fat website and take a look around. I think you will be impressed!  You can follow @myalli on Twitter for even more helpful tips, information, promotions, etc.

    I’ve heard of but in such a big family have still not known anyone that has actually tried this. This gets rave reviews though! I don’t have my “mindset” for this yet, as of course EVERY year vow to not only lose but just get healthy. I like that it’s a total support program too and not just a product.

  2. I’m working on health and fitness this year, too!! Good luck! It always helps to have support!!

  3. Dede says:

    I can’t wait to see your progress on it. Thanks for the motivation!

  4. Sarah says:

    Good luck with your goals! This reminds me a lot of Spark People, which I used in 2011 to lose 25 pounds. I’ll be going back to it this year to lose my most recent baby weight. Yay for getting healthy!

  5. I deff indulged in too many holiday sweets this year. I could really use a good diet pill especially one with an exercise plan!

  6. I love that their site has videos to show the exercises being done correctly. Sometimes I wonder if I’m doing them as effectively and efficiently as possible, so that’s a big bonus!

  7. I’m on a mission to complete this weight loss goal, I hear great things about it.

  8. April Vendetti says:

    Lossing weight is my goal this year so this is perfect.

  9. Robin O says:

    I hate holiday fat!! I am definitely interested in the custom calorie and activity tracking features. I will check it out. Thanks!

  10. Betsy Barnes says:

    Actually, I began eating healthy in August 2012 and lost 25 pounds, so I will find this useful as I continue to reach my goal :)

  11. I wish you the best success in your weight loss goals this year. I hope to maintain my weight and not gain any. I serious need to exercise though.

  12. Laura Miller says:

    I can’t wait to see your progress…I’ve always been curious about Alli, but I’m just too chicken! The best of luck!!!

  13. Vonnie says:

    Thanks for the info. I’m going to go check it out!

  14. Barrie says:

    Sounds like a great program and one that is supportive, which I think we all need to be successful in weight loss. Good luck!

  15. NIcole Strunk says:

    It’s very helpful to have an online support community to track your progress and get ideas for meals and such. It makes it much easier to stay on track

  16. vickie marks allbright says:

    ok i am trying to lose weight n i like this thank you

  17. ANN*H says:

    We all seem to gain weight during the holidays with all the good foods we eat. My goal is to eat healthier and lose weight again. I lost 40 lbs before just watching what I ate . Maybe I can do it again with Alli.

  18. Ttrockwood says:

    I had a friend who got great results from using this! I’m still doing excersize and eating healthy but this may be my next step

  19. rebeka deleon says:

    i plan to start a diet after i give birth! :)

  20. Stephanie from CT says:

    I did pretty good on not over eating over the holidays, but need to get consistant on exercising in the new year!

  21. June M. says:

    I am trying to get healthier (lose weight, exercise more, eat better). I did buy some of this product but have not really started the program yet. I REALLY need to start it, lol.

  22. Meg Tucker says:

    Good luck Jennifer…If you run your weight loss plan he way you run your blog you’ll be a success!

  23. Eve Ghigliotti says:

    Thanks for the review. I know that this takes a lot of time out of your day for readers like myself to be able to learn from what your sharing. I personally used Alli for a few things & think it is a great company.

  24. Kim M says:

    I am ready that I have put my treadmill downstairs in the living/ dining room. I see it all day to remind me to use it.

  25. Vickie Kulp says:

    I don’t really gain much weight during the holidays but would still like to lose a few pounds. I think I will take a look at the alli site and see if it can help me.

  26. polly says:

    losing weight is my new years resolution every year….maybe this will be the one to get me motivated!

  27. Jeffrey says:

    The holidays are rough and then comes the new year when everyone is attempting to lose the weight. I believe most people need some type of support and this site seems to be a good one from your description. I always have my workouts planned way in advance and for me its much easier to stick to them. Its important to make the time, scheduling other tasks around exercising.

  28. Helga says:

    I keep seeing this product being promoted and I wonder how well it works.

  29. Meg Tucker says:

    I’d like to know more about Alli. I like the features and I really need to make a commitment to losing weight!

  30. I have actually tried Alli before, and while I did lose weight, I didn’t care for some of the very unpleasant side effects. It may have better results for other people though! Definitely gets good reviews!

  31. Kayleen Considine says:

    I looked at Alli in the drugstore a couple of years ago but it was pretty expensive and I couldn’t afford it. I have to watch what kind of exercise I do because I just underwent knee surgery a little over a year ago and I have bad knees. I am hoping to be able to get back in the pool soon, as that is what I find works best for me because it’s non-weight bearing. Good luck with your weight loss!!

  32. Stephanie from CT says:

    my resolution was to get more exercise, sounds like this might help me work on it!

  33. Blessie Nelson says:

    Oh yes, I am so ready to fight it!! Thank you!!

  34. sheri grennille says:

    i’ve lost weight lately – having my husband leave me left me not having an appetite. the weight has stayed off for two months now, and i’m ready to try to loose more. i need to get a better self image and it’s very hard. thank you for being an inspiration and a distraction – i love to read your blog.

  35. Robin O says:

    I checked out the site. I have been concentrating on eating more veggies to fill up and avoid junk food. It’s helping!

  36. rochelle haynes says:


  37. Vickie Couturier says:

    havent tried it yet,but would love to,heck at this point id try anythng

  38. Lisa Brown says:

    Great site. It’s hard to reduce calories when you like to eat :)

  39. Melissa K says:

    I love it when bloggers take on things like this. I can’t wait to see your progress.

  40. Ttrockwood says:

    Glad to see they offer so much support and not just a quick fix pill

  41. kelly nicholson says:

    heyyy! were all gonna lose some pounds!

  42. Nicole Lancaster says:

    I like the way the program is set up as I one of my goal is to lose 50 lbs. I think that it is very useful in tracking progress which makes weight loss more successful.

  43. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    Thanks Jennifer – I am definitely going to look in to this.After dealing with some health problems in recent years, my honey/hubby & me decided this year we are going to for sure get in better shape THIS YEAR. We already started with eating better – and both have lost weight already. We also started taking Yoga classes together and we are feeling the results from that too.

    But I”m thinking in terms of Alli – I’m thinking Strong & Toned might be best for me while CrossTrain Cardio better for the Hubby. Thanks!

  44. Tanya White says:

    I am looking to lose 80 pounds this year, last year I lost 120 pounds counting calories, I gained back 30 of those 120 during the holidays ( I stopped counting and I was indulging a lot)so my jeans are really tight so the first week of January I got back to counting and have lost 8 pounds.

  45. Sarah L says:

    My goal is to swim 3 times a week.

  46. Heather says:

    Very cool program! I like that you can choose your activity level.

  47. Joan says:

    This sounds like a great plan! I’ve had friends get great results with Alli. Good luck!

  48. Danie Thomson says:

    I am resolved to lose that holiday weight in the new year, but have historically found that the quickest, easiest way for me to drop the pounds is to stop drinking alcohol, and living in NYC, its hard to avoid in social settings! So maybe this site can help me, indeed. Thanks!

  49. Julie Wood says:

    I am trying to lose 20 pounds and it sounds like Alli could really help me. I need to get this weight off! I am going to look into seeing about using this product. You seem to be saying that it is a good product. I need something to help me curb my appetite!

  50. Rich Hicks says:

    I need to try this…..my new year resolution is to lose 15 lb and I need all the help I can get!

  51. polly says:

    my goal is to lose weight this winter/spring….maybe this will help me

  52. This would certainly help anyone that is trying to fight all the pounds they may have packed on during the holidays.

  53. Charlene Shaver says:

    I’ve never tried alli before, but my neighbor is doing the plan & she’s lost a lot of weight & seems to be feeling better :)

  54. Jill L says:

    Thinking this might be the way to go to jump start my healthy living.
