Walmart and alli Team Up for Weight Loss {$50 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway}

Walmart logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Kathy Rambousek!}

Like many people, I've spent the majority of my adult life unhappy with my weight and have only recently managed to find success with shedding the excess.

In the past, however, I tried diets and I tried exercise (okay, I didn't really try too hard on the exercise) and I tried just plain hope. It couldn't hurt to go to bed wishing that some pounds would miraculously be gone the next morning, could it?

As all of those didn't do a thing for me, I seemed to feel stuck hating a very common phrase: There's no magic solution to weight loss.

Really, why not? Why isn't there a magic solution? Technology has come up with a whole lot of other incredible things, why isn't there one pill that I can take or one cream that I can slather on that will instantly make the extra pounds come off?

And then suddenly, it seemed as though there was one weight loss system that was going to come close to turning magic into reality: alli.

alliThe only FDA-approved over-the-counter weight loss aid, alli is safe and effective when used as directed at helping you lose weight. As it works in your digestive system, you aren't left with jitters, a racing heart or trouble sleeping, instead this is a complete plan that helps you make healthy food choices.

Sounds promising, right? Thanks to the alli Weight Loss System page on Walmart.com, it's easy to find out so much more and discover if alli right for you. Not only can you get all the facts, but everything you need to get started is right there for you.

Product shot of alli package

First, to help in your decision-making process, Walmart makes it easy to watch testimonials from real people using alli. Hear about their weight loss, customized support,alli coupon and just what this program has done to make a difference in their lives.

Then, a coupon! Never shop without a coupon and this is no exception! With one click, Walmart offers a printable $5 off coupon so that you can get started using alli with a little extra money in your pocket.

Next, check out "my alli plan" to start using your own personalized alli plan right away. This 26-week customized lesson plan focuses on fitness, food, myalliplanlifestyle and nutrition and offers you the tips and tools that you need to know about portions, shopping and healthy choices. On top of all that, you'll have access to an entire community of alli users that can help you in your journey.

Finally, download the "my alli" app, the free calorie counter that will help you make the right choices as you plan your meals - whether at home or at a restaurant. By having easy access to a list of hundreds of foods by calorie and fat content (including those found at popular restaurants), this is just the thing to get you going with the essentials and tips that you'll need while using alli.

I tried to post this a second ago and it wouldn't work, so hopefully two posts don't show up.


I walk the local trail 4-5 evenings a week while pushing the baby in the stroller. It's a fast paced walk, usually lasting about 45 minutes to an hour. :)

Get your exercise done in the morning - that way you can't say I'll do it later and then end up too busy and not having enough time or being too exhausted at the end of the day to do it.

My best weight loss tip is to watch your sodium and get plenty of protein. Also read labels. Just because they sound healthy, doesn't mean they are not loaded with sodium.

My best weight loss tip is an easy one: put your fork/spoon/food down in between bites and take time to chew and enjoy your food. You will eat less food ...and therefore consume fewer calories.

No eating or munching after 6pm. Your body takes awhile to digests and eating late causes it to lay in your stomach and it takes longer to work off.If you get hungry start drinking water, it will fill you up.

I have no set plan, but I will usually walk with friends at work around a nearby lake which I've found is 1.7 miles that we cover in 30 minutes, and swimming with my kids as much as I can. Honestly, it's the cooking of healthy meals that I need help with. I tend to go with pasta when I'm short on time and I know there must be better options available.
