MOSELLE, MS (WDAM) - The Season 10 Biggest Loser winner Patrick House paid a visit to Moselle Elementary School Tuesday morning to talk with students about his Lean on Me program.
House encouraged the students to be a part of his Team Green which promotes a healthier life style through making better choices on nutrition, exercise, and relationships with fellow students. By being a member of Team Green the students promise to adhere to the rules which include making healthier choices and not bullying fellow students.
House is a native of Brandon Mississippi and now resides in Vicksburg. When he first joined the Biggest Loser he weighed more than 400 pounds. He lost a total of 181 pounds or 45% of his body weight to take home top honors and the $250,000 first prize. He now travels the country targeting elementary school students with his message.
As part of the event The Jones County Medical Alliance donated a commercial fruit and vegetable slicer to the school. The slicer cuts fruits and vegetables in decorative shapes which makes the food choices more fun to eat.
