Los Angeles, California – (The Hosting News) – June 9, 2006 – Performance web hosting company, Globat.com, is sponsoring the weight loss program of the Missouri woman whose birth of Samiah Wynn Francis, on March 18th, 2006 at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital, was also sponsored by Globat.
Asia Francis, a 21-year-old resident of St. Louis, attracted worldwide media attention, when she and her daughter became instant Internet celebrities. Asia, who is 5 ft., 3 ins. and had a pre-pregnancy weight of 120 lbs., reached a whopping 185 lbs. during her pregnancy. In order to shed her baby fat, Asia is participating in a 60-day rigorous weight loss program.
admits, ”I, like many other women, have the biggest fear of not being able to lose the ‘After Birth’ weight.” However, with motivation from Globat.com, Asia is not only determined to ”squeeze into my pre-pregnancy pants,” but also ”about being able to zip them.”
Ben R. Neumann, President and CEO of Globat.com commented, ”’Losing weight is no easy task, but we know Asia can do it!. We hope that our participation keeps her motivated and gets her back in those jeans!” Asia will be wearing Globat.com items during the 60-day period and will be tracking her progress in an exclusive weight loss blog on DefyingGravity.com.
Attracting media attention worldwide, Globat.com has recently launched a wave of unique sponsorships and events, such as a hamburger-eating challenge and a sponsored birth, under the banner of ”Defying Gravity,” with the ultimate goal to launch at least one such special event in each of the 50 states.
Globat.com founder Ben R. Neumann, a two-time Entrepreneur of the Year award nominee, was a pioneer of the budget web hosting industry in 1994 when he founded Icom.com, which was sold to Interliant in 1998 and is today owned by Interland.
