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.

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!
