FULTON, New York - When Jay Wornick's wife said they both should lose some weight as a New Year's resolution, he took up the challenge. Ten months later, he's 200 pounds lighter.

Wornick tells the Post-Standard of Syracuse that he weighed 366 pounds on Jan 1, when his wife issued the challenge. As of Monday, he was down to 168 pounds. That's a 198-pound weight loss in a little more than 10 months.

The 30-year-old father of three says his typical daily meals used to include a 20-ounce steak and three potatoes washed down with a 12-pack of soda.

Now he eats fruits, vegetables and lean meats, drinks water and works out six days a week at the YMCA near the family's home in Fulton in central New York.
