Focus On A New, Improved You For The New Year! @MinuteClinic #HealthYourself @CVS_Extra #Ad



    This is definitely the time of year when everyone is focusing on their New Year’s resolutions.  After all, a new year means new beginnings and we all want to start off on the right foot.  Most people’s resolutions revolve around becoming healthier, looking better, or just being more fit.  MinuteClinic has all of the support that you will need in the new year to focus on a new, improved you.

    Weight loss is something that is definitely a goal for most of us.  Since finding out that I was diabetic last year, I have lost almost 80 pounds and it has certainly made a big difference in the way that I feel and the way that I look.  MinuteClinic’s Weight Loss Program is offered in partnership with the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet which is ranked #1 overall by U.S. News & World Report 4 years in a row!


    Losing weight can be extremely difficult since it requires a complete lifestyle change and the modification of your eating habits.  That is why I really love that a nurse practitioner is with you every step of the way, throughout your participation in this program, from initial health assessment to ongoing customized coaching to help keep you on track.

    Having someone to lean on who is cheering you on and keeping you focused on your weight loss goals can really mean the difference between being successful of failing.  MinuteClinic’s Weight Loss Program The program also gives you exclusive online membership to DASH for Health portal (a $69 value), which provides ongoing tips, lists and recipes as a resource during your weight loss journey.

    The best part is that MinuteClinic also offers other self-improvement programs to help you be at your very best in 2015!  In addition to its Weight Loss Program, MinuteClinic also offers Eyelash Lengthening Consultations, and comprehensive Smoking Cessation programs, complete with personalized assessment, plan and ongoing coaching.

    As someone who quit smoking in 2007 I can tell you that it was extremely difficult.  Perhaps if I had participated in MinuteClinic’s Smoking Cessation program, I would have been able to stop completely the first time I tried to quit smoking.  Unfortunately, since I did not have a good support system, I actually tried to quit smoking about three times before I was finally successful at doing so.  Next July will make 8 years since I quit smoking and I feel much better health wise for having done so.


    Make sure you connect with MinuteClinic on Facebook and Twitter to find out all the ways that you can gain wellness in the New Year!

  1. I think it’s fantastic that the Minute Clinic is expanding their services like this. A lot of people need or want help, but don’t know where to go. This will help a lot of people I’m sure.

  2. I had no idea about the additional services. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Jocelyn McGaffic says

    Wow! I didnt know the Minute Clinic offered these services. How wonderful!

  4. Lesley Stevens says

    Sounds like a good plan. I haven’t been to one of these clinics. I have seen them in the store though.

    A blogger friend of mine did the quit smoking service. These are great convenient services!

  8. Carmen Nimo Perez says

    Sounds like Minute Clinic has some great programs for eveyone to start the new year off just right. And who doesn’tt want to lose some weight after the holidays?!

  9. LOL, your son does NOT look happy to be there. “C’mon mom, no more photos!”

  10. What some great sounding programmes it sounds like it has, we don’t have anything quite like it here I don’t think – I shall have to look! x

  11. Mama to 5 Blessings says

    I love the programs that CVS offers, they are definitely all about health – I like that they are not selling cigarettes anymore too!

  12. Losing weight is really important when you are dealing with diabetes! I also lost about 60 lbs when I found out. It is good to know that help is around the corner if you need it.

  13. I’ve resolved to drink more water in 2015. I definitely want to get healthier this year.

  14. I don’t really do resolutions anymore – I never ever follow through with them. But in 2015 I want to focus more on my blog and losing the rest of my baby weight from baby #6!

  15. I didn’t know they offered a weight loss program! I need to check it out.

  16. Wow this sounds great. I am all about a new me!

  17. I love our local CVS and their minute clinic. We have used it numerous times and have always been happy with it.

  18. First, congrats on the 80 pound weight loss. That is amazing. My healthy goals for the New Year involve trying to incorporate more organic and less GMO foods into my diet.

  19. I’ve heard of these walk in clinics before. They seem to be great ideas. You are on the right track to taking control of your diabetes!

  20. I really wish we had one of these in Lansing! We don’t. It looks like it would be awesome. Congrats on your 80 lb weight loss – I lost the same amount and mannn, it was rough!

  21. themommyfiles says

    I think it’s so awesome that CVS has a Minute Clinic. There have been so many times when I had medical questions, but the doctor’s office was closed. I love that you can ask them at the Minute Clinic and then get your medicine right there in the store.

  22. Chrystal M. says

    I just found out they are going to open a CVS by me soon. I wanted to take advantage of their weight loss benefit but it’s quite a distance for me to drive.

  23. I love that they have a smoking cessation program. Maybe my husband will be interested in seeing what they offer.

  24. I didn’t know that they offered eyelash services, how cool is that!? Going to have to check this out!

  25. amanda ripsam says

    Eyelash service at the pharmacy how cleaver, the stop smoking program would be so helpful to so many people here in my small town but we don’t have a minute clinic cvs near by.

  26. i think this is such a great concept and program. I think it’s great that CVS has this!!!

  27. Chrissy Mazzocchi says

    I’ve always ondered about the Minute Clinic at CVS. I love how they have the stop smoking prgram as well.

  28. nicole dziedzic says

    My New Years resolutions are spending more time with my friends, making more time for myself, and saving some cash. Also love CVS self improvement programs!
