Our New Year, New Year, New Foot (or hand) contest has officially ended. We have been overwhelmed by the efforts of our patients who participated, and everybody should be applauded for their efforts. To date, OPC patients have lost a whopping 150 pounds!
Congratulations to our winner, Bob. He shed an impressive 20% of his body weight, losing nearly 50 pounds since January. Stay tuned to a future blog where Bob will share some of his motivational insights and weight loss tips!
In an effort to encourage our patients who are continuing on their weight loss journey, we have decided to provide a "second chance" prize. A $50 gift card to amazon.com is being offered to the participant who loses the highest percentage of body weight by Labor Day.
If you have already registered for New Year, New You, New Foot (or hand) you don't need to contact us to continue your participation. The percentage lost will be calculated based upon the starting weight that was reported back in January when the contest began. If you did not register for the initial contest but would like to participate, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your starting weight, contact information and current photo.
We realize that losing weight can be a frustrating undertaking, and we are pleased to be able to offer the gift card as a motivational incentive. If you are looking for support, we invite you to visit the OPC page on Facebook where you can connect with other patients who are working towards a healthier weight.
