Fort Wayne couple lose 255 lb. between them


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- There's a lot less of Tony Williams and Rebecca Moore than there used to be -- 255 pounds, to be exact.

The engaged couple from Fort Wayne used to weigh in at 572 pounds combined. Through exercise and better eating, they managed to trim that to 317 pounds.

On Tuesday, Williams is to appear on NBC-TV's "Today" show to discuss the loss.

Anytime Fitness centers local manager Rachele Jones tells The Journal Gazette she submitted photos of Williams and wanted to do the same with Moore, "but she was too shy."

The weight loss campaign started in January 2009. The 5-foot-5-inch Williams went from 294 to 173 pounds. His 5-4 fiancee went from 278 to 134.

They say their success is motivating them to finally set a wedding date.
