Resident’s weight loss leads to celebrity treatment

Because life offers a myriad of opportunities, let’s spotlight Daytona State College instructor Lakeisha Riddle Byrd and how an opportunity allowed her to make it to the top. It’s news for your body and the way the Walden University master’s alumna earned a share of $25 million in free products, prizes and vacations.

The Daytona Beach native resides in Palm Coast. She’s married and is the mother of four.

She earned her share at the Visalus Super Bowl National at the Miami Heat Arena – a month following the Miami Heat championship – to become the next champion.

Legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan called Byrd out of thousands of Visalus promoters to be the next 2012 Random Drawing Champion. Byrd has lost 30 pounds using the Visalus products, and lately has gone from 280 to 247 pounds. She has regained health, feels much better, and helps others to get healthy and back in shape.

Prizes, trip to Hollywood
The Body by Vi Challenge offers over $25 million for a total prize value to the most impressive 90-day transformations. Each quarter, one apiece is selected from among a male, female, couple, team, family – including one from a lottery. Runners-up in each category are eligible to win free cruises, all part of $25 million in awards annually.

Byrd attests that when Hulk Hogan called her name, she was shocked, but nonetheless was overwhelmed and overjoyed.

“As I ran to the stage, it was like being on ‘The Price Is Right,’” attests Byrd. “As I walked onstage, Hulk Hogan looked at me, smiled, and said, ‘You rock, girl!’”

Byrd said that following her acceptance speech, life hasn’t been the same in the “Vi Community.” She’s constantly congratulated and everyone wants to take her picture. It’s been memorable, but Byrd gives God the glory.

A trip to Hollywood was among Byrd’s prizes. She’s received celebrity-style treatment, professional photo shoots with celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz of “America’s Next Top Model.” The photos will be used for marketing and for The Challenge & Success Magazine.

Byrd has had fashion and hairstylists, makeup artists, and she’s received a new wardrobe.

“We celebrated in Hollywood on a luxury limo bus, in conjunction with an exquisite dinner with one of the Visalus owners,” asserted Byrd. “We stayed at the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica Beach. We visited the pier, and we had a blast!”
