It’s time. Time to fat Holiday Fat and get off my tush to make it happen. Brian has lost over 60 pounds and I’m GOING to do something about my weight this year. Part of my weight gain is from medicine I take, but my Dr. said I could easily lose 30-35 pounds if I got up and did it. I want to do something similiar to my husband. No fad diets. Just eating the right amount of calories, eating the right foods, and incorporating more exercise into my daily life. I’m also going to use alli to help me with my weight loss. I just signed up over at the Let’s Fight Holiday Fat Site. Here’s what’s involved at the site:
Your Program Includes
› Workout routines for all levels

Sounds like a great program so far, right? As soon as you sign up you are taken through a series of questions beginning with what is your exercise preference. I chose Strong and toned. I want to work hard and hopefully see the results. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not expecting a miracle, but I do want to feel better. Then you put your stat date in. I’m starting my weight loss and getting fit transition on Monday December 31. I figure by then all the Christmas leftovers and cakes will be gone. Plus, it seems fitting starting this for the New Year. Then you put in your weight, height, and goal weight and choose between vegetarian or regular options and the site gives you your calories allowed. I’m allowed 1830 in the beginning.

Busy Mom and Let’s Fight Holiday Fat spokesperson, Samantha Harris, shares her tips for ‘Surviving the Season’.
As a TV Personality and busy mom of two, I understand the stresses and temptations the holidays can bring – especially for those trying to maintain their current weight. That’s why I’m encouraging those seeking support to visit LetsFightHolidayFat.com – a new, free online guide for Americans trying to squeeze in healthy eating and exercise this season. The tool, created courtesy of alli® – the only FDA-approved weight loss aid available without a prescription – is for anyone interested in overcoming the holidays and being weight loss ready in 2013.
- Make healthy low-fat food choices. Swap out the high fat ingredients in your favorite holiday recipe for healthier options.
- Snack Often. Have healthy snacks at hand to help keep you from reaching for holiday goodies. Apples, low-fat string cheese and baby carrots are low-fat and easy to pack! Have a sweet tooth? Try a small peppermint candy (fat-free!) to satisfy your temptation.
- Exercise. Exercise. Exercise. Finding small ways to fit in physical activity can help maintain your weight and energy throughout the season. Going holiday shopping? Park the car in the farthest spot from the store entrance. Cooking? Work your legs with squats while waiting for the water to boil.
- Plan Ahead. Going to a holiday party? Eat a low-fat snack at home to help you stay on track and avoid over-indulging in unhealthy choices.
- Keep Stress Levels Low. Eating healthy and being physically active can play a big part in keeping holiday stress at bay. Keeping stress levels low also may help prevent weight gain. Try to find a time in a busy day to take a few minutes for exercise, deep breathing, or eat a healthy, low-fat snack.
