Springfield Pastor loses it ... weight, that is

SPRINGFIELD, Ore - One Springfield pastor is losing it. No, not his mind, his excess pounds. Aaron Taylor weighs 378 pounds and says he wants to shed 75 to 100 of them. He's asking Crossfire World Outreach Ministries members to make a donation for every pound he loses.

The money will help the church make up for its budget shortfall and to the mission's department. Taylor said he's doing it for his health and to be a good role model.

"I've been convicted for a long time and wanted to try to lose some weight," said Taylor. "I've tried many times."

This time he's doing it the old fashioned way with diet and exercise. Two weeks into the program, Taylor said he's lost seven pounds.
