New Year's Resolutions to Lose Weight - Why Do We Do It to Ourselves?

It’s the day after Christmas and you are hungry. You go into the kitchen and pile your plate high with leftovers. When you’re finished, you stare contemplatively at the countertop full of cookies, candies, cakes and pies and decide to go with one of each.

Why not? It’s the holidays and everyone knows that holiday calories don’t count (except they do and your jeans have been trying to tell you that since Thanksgiving). Besides, you have to eat all of these goodies by December 31st because come New Year’s Day, you will be jumping on that get-fit train. You’re really going to stick with it this time. You’ve got a new fad diet waiting in the wings for you, and there it will wait until January 1st. 

This is the New Year’s resolution tale you have become all too familiar with. That first day of the New Year rolls around and you toss all the cakes and cookies, head out to buy some cute new workout clothes and sign up for big change at the local gym. You stop at the store on the way home and load up on all the foods outlined on your new weight loss plan. You are gung-ho. Nothing is going to sway you from success this time. Week one: you’re eating as much chicken and fish as your body can handle and going to the gym every single day. Five pounds gone; you’re feeling pretty proud. Week two: you’re still eating chicken but the fish has to go. You’ve been to the gym four days this week. A three pound weight loss still has you feeling pretty good. Maybe you’ll reward yourself with a small ice cream cone on the way home.

Week three is going OK, but you had pasta for dinner last night and you sampled some of your handiwork while baking for your kid’s upcoming bake sale. You only made it to the gym twice this week because you had a couple of appointments and after-school activities and, well, life. You had life. And here’s where the proverbial wheels start coming off the wagon. All the little missteps turn into a big backslide and before you know it, you’ve gained seven pounds. You know you need to find a simple weight loss program that will work. You need something that you can incorporate into your everyday life that still allows you to have a life. But right now you’re just too exhausted to worry about it so maybe next week.

Sound familiar? This is the story of struggle that many of us face every January. New Year’s resolutions to lose weight often lead to feelings of guilt and shame when they are unsuccessful. By making a choice one meal at a time to eat the right thing, you will start living a healthy lifestyle program that will make future New Year’s resolutions (to lose weight, anyway) a thing of the past!

Thank You Vilmos!

When I decided to improve my health I reach out to Vilmos, to be honest, I was a little skeptical. I lost weight in the past using weight watchers a few times, and I was curious about his approach. However, it turns out the investment was worth it because I lost over forty pounds in six months, but this time I’m confident I can keep it off. I learned so much about myself in the last 6 months. I even saw improvement in other areas of my life.

Full of energy and loving it.

THANK YOU, Vilmos!!! Your program improved my habits and my body, and I continue to improve my habits every day. I can’t thank Vilmos enough for caring, understanding, and holding me accountable to make sure I stay on the path to success.

I tried a few diets in the past that lead to frustration and stress — I lost some weight but I became emotional like anyone really needs that. I was referred to Vilmos, and after our discovery meeting, everything clicked. I’m really enjoying the supplements Vilmos created for me.

Vilmos saved my life. For over 20 years i suffered with fibromyalgia that lead me to medication. 20 years after taking my first medication for the fibromyalgia, I end up 20 years later on a total of 8 medication for allergies, ulcer, blood-pressure and a lot of nutrition deficiency’s plus 30 pounds. My blood work from my doctor only got worst after trying different weight loss program and counting calories. After talking with Vilmos I realize he was the right person to help me. For him it was consistency, not a quick fix, which was hard for me because i’m not great with change. After focusing on my ulcer the first 3 days I can tell the difference, I was sold. Six months later my doctor took me off of 5 medication because my blood work was that good and I loss 25 lbs and that is hard for someone that’s about to hit 70 years old. Today i’m taking my custom cocktail supplement Vilmos had created for me to address my vitamins deficiency, trim tea to help with weight loss and ultimate aloe for my digestive system. Today I’m eating healthier and have a lot of energy, so I can’t help but refer people to him, he is great at what he does. Thank you Vilmos, I am you’re number one fan!

I've been searching for awhile for supplements that would help me reach my goal! Things have to really impress me for me give a review but this works so it's easy to do! Vilmos and his team are Bert knowledgeable and the products have really helped me and now my wife! I was the Ginny pig lol!

I discussed my health concerns and goals with Vilmos. I wanted improvement in joint health, good overall circulation, and hopefully to lose a few pounds. At his recommendation, I began the MultiVitamin, and later added Isotonix OPC-3 , and Bromelain Plus. Vilmos is very knowledgeable, and I appreciate that he explains in detail what is in the supplement and how it targets the problem. I believe these products are helping to eliminate my inflammation, improving my joint function; and I definitely plan to continue this program.

I love taking the Daily essentials pack, it was recommended by Vilmos because I was having issues with being tired a lot and feeling low with energy. Since I have been taking it i feel like my rest is actually making a difference. I do not feel tired all day any more It has helped me in ways I can't even describe. Love love it....
