Getting Healthy: How To Get Ready For The New Year Now

So we are approaching the Holidays which can be a time of unhealthy indulgence that eventually leads to our new year’s resolutions. The new year’s resolutions are almost the same… You are going to get healthy and you are going to fix your finances. Sounds familiar?

Well what if I told you that CVS can help a little in both regards?

In order for you to really assess your health and take action there are certain screenings you should have regularly, especially if you are going to incorporate diet and exercise into your regular routine. CVS / Pharmacy has committed to becoming a community resource and has created special events to help you lead a happier and healthier in 2016. Services include screenings that address obesity, hypertension and diabetes just to name a few. If you do not have health insurance, they can also consult with you and help you find options are available to you.

I did it… two years ago after a lot of progress with my type2 diabetes, I fell off and struggled with staying healthy. When I made the decision… I could not afford to wait to New Year’s Day to make a symbolic change. I needed real change and fast. I am happy to report that I have lost over 100lbs and have maintained my weight loss.
