can be a stressful and tempting time to derail or delay weight maintenance
goals. For the millions of Americans who will resolve to lose weight next

with and help launch LetsFightHolidayFat.com. The healthy holiday alternative
recipes are reduced calorie, low-fat and delicious, and the fitness videos are
easy for anyone to follow along at home."

during the holidays: diet, physical activity and motivation in an easy-to-use
interface. It helps track goals and prepare for long-term success with
oFollow-along fitness videos; from cross training to yoga / pilates
