Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
The Live Life Again Center for Bariatric Surgery and Dr. David Kim are announcing the winner of their weight loss surgery contest. Vicki Luna was one of nine finalists selected from the initial round of video entries, in which patients explained how weight loss surgery would change their lives. Following an online voting period, Vicki was declared the winner. She will now undergo bariatric surgery at the Live Life Again Center, and provide an inside-look at the entire weight loss process.
After conducting a massive networking campaign in which she enlisted the help of her entire community, Vicki received thousands of votes in the weight loss surgery contest. She created flyers and wristbands, handed out flyers and goodie bags, and spoke to family, friends, coworkers, the local police department, recital attendees, and church parishioners. Once selected as a finalist, she says she spoke to anyone and everyone willing to listen because of the magnitude of this opportunity and her passion for making a healthy change as she strives to life the life she desires.
As the Dallas bariatric practice and Dr. Kim prepare Vicki for the weight loss procedure, they have expressed their excitement for the results of the contest as well. Dr. Kim says the entire Live Life Again staff anxiously await the next step for Vicki, and believe she will act as a source of inspiration for many people considering a healthy transformation and a new chapter in their lives.
