Default Former Cowboys star Nate Newton has lost 175 pounds

Quote:
At his heaviest, Nate Newton weighed 401 pounds. He was so big during his playing days that he forced the Dallas Cowboys equipment manager to rearrange his entire ordering system (and earned the nickname "The Kitchen" because of it). He used to joke about his size, saying that when he retired from the NFL he was going to get into the weight-gaining business because "I know all the wrong things to do."

He stayed big after retiring and through his 32-month stint in prison and it eventually got to the point where Newton, 48, stopped joking about his size and became fearful of it instead. When he came to the realization that his obesity might not let him live long enough to see his youngest son graduate from high school, he decided to do something about.

The Dallas Morning news reports that in February, Newton underwent a new surgery called "vertical gastrectomy," an operation which removes up to 75 percent of the patient's stomach and staples the remaining portion. Today, he weighs 220 pounds. It's the thinnest he's been since eighth grade.

I'm shocked a former Cowboys player has spent a 32-month stint in jail. I always thought they were recognized for their squeaky-clean image.



But congratulations to him for losing 175 pounds! That alone has probably extended his life a couple years longer.

Hope he keeps it off. I never understood cheering for someone who lost weight via surgery... I mean what did you really accomplish?
