"We have such great admiration for all of the Local Loser contestants," says Paige A. Pistone, Director of Marketing of Friendship All Natural Cottage Cheese & Sour Cream. "We applaud them for their courage in undertaking this difficult challenge and for making a commitment to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits. Through their accomplishments, we hope to inspire others to also embrace a healthy lifestyle."
Last year, West Chester, Philadelphia resident Carl Steinmetz was named Delaware Valley's biggest "Local Loser" when he lost 55 pounds over eight weeks in the NBC 10 and Friendship Cottage Cheese weight loss and healthy lifestyle challenge. The 41-year-old customer service representative dropped from 415 pounds to 360 pounds, losing 13.25 percent of his total body weight, and embraced a healthy lifestyle to beat out four other competitors for the title. Today, Steinmetz has lost a total of 115 pounds and is working to break the 300 pound barrier.
"We're proud to partner with Friendship All Natural Cottage Cheese on the Local Biggest Loser Contest," said Wilson. "It was incredibly inspirational to watch last year's five finalists and ultimate winner, Carl Steinmetz, as they each got on the road to a healthier lifestyle through proper diet and exercise. We're excited to help this year's contestants do the same."
