    It's also easier to FedEx a box of cash than to write a check.

    Guess what he is healthier... yes we should yell at him for trying to live longer b/c he didn't do it your way. It's his medical decision to make and I am happy he is doing much better now. And for the record I would rather people work hard and reduce their weight too. But it's different begrudging someone who has improved his/her health from a different method.

    look i love rex, he is a father, a son, and whatnot, i want him to live as long as possible and im happy he's healthy(er) now. im just talking about the surgery itself. he could have lost weight the traditional way, thats all im saying. mangini had the same weight issues, he didnt get the surgery and he looks pretty healthy now

    Rex is looking great

    The article I read (in the Post) said he was just starting to contemplate exercise - walking. Before losing 100 lbs it was too uncomfortable, even walking. So good for him for taking the right steps.
    And if the worst part is having to buy a new wardrobe, heck, those are some awesome suits and shoes they show him wearing. I wonder how longs it's been since he has worn a suit. He looks great. I wonder if he will still don the khakis and black sweatervest look for the games. If he keeps looking this good I may have to rethink my plans and start tuning in to Jets games this season.

    What an ignorant statement. Shows you know nothing about weight loss and the difficulty some people have. The lap band or any other kind of surgery for weight loss is a tool. You can choose to abuse it and still gain weight or use it to your advantage and eat right along with regular exercise. The work still has to be done to lose the weight and maintain it.

    Another clueless ignorant comment. Yes, it does matter what you eat. You can sit in your rear all day and drink milkshakes and eat easy foods that can pass thru the band like mashed potatoes, spaghetti, liquid calories all the while stretching your stomach. It takes discipline to maintain weight loss and avoid stretching your stomach.

    I think genetics does play a factor in people with unhealthy eating habits. My brother-in-law eats like he has a tapeworm- pounds, beers, quarts of ice cream, burgers, etc and he has no gut whatsover. Not blaming genes for someone sitting on a couch scarfing a large pizza but there is less of a margin for error, so to speak, as to how fat some people will get.

    Well of course some families are fat, and some are skinny, and have trouble putting on weight. You would have thought, someone would have figured it out already. Biggest thing for average people though are these diets. They start at 16 years old 5 to 10 pounds over weight, then go on a diet. Once they reach the weight they want they stop, and gain it back , only they just starved themselves, and slowed their metabolism. They put on an extra 5 pounds by the time it recovers. Well now multiply 5 lbs times how many diets you've been on and that's how over weight you are. They need to stop these kids from going on diets. Ruins their quality of life. If you want to lose 10 lbs then just be conscious of it a little. Just eat a little less, or healthy. Lose it over a year, and stay that way, or just stay 10 lbs overweight.

    dude it doesnt take discipline if your stomach is the size of a peanut. you dont have much of a choice, you cant eat enough to actually gain weight when you are already 400 pounds and your stomach is that small, it doesnt matter what you eat. he can eat half the fast food crap he ate before, he'd still lose weight. its all about how many calories you burn and take in. if 20 burgers a day got him to 400 pounds, he can eat 10 burgers a day now and lose weight. until he gets to a certain point of course, then he will have to make more adjustments in order to lose more weight. and if he watched what he ate and if he really was that disciplined he wouldnt need the surgery

    Are the guys hating on weight loss surgery okay with the women (or men) in their lives surgically enhancing their boobs, butts or faces?
    So the guy realized he had a problem and rectified it.
    I know a few people who had a complete gastric bypass, ate nothing but junk and gained all the weight back.
    Just because your stomach is the size of of a walnut doesn't mean that you
    don't have to eat healthy. If Rex went back to eating M&Ms all day he would never have lost the weight.

    Spoken out of pure ignorance. Too many people are scared to have lap band surgery and pay the price with their life.
    Lap Band surgery is a big step that requires a lifestyle change. And post surgery is not easy.

    One idiotic post after another. When your predisposed to being obese and you reach a dangerous level, no amount of dieting or exercise will make a difference. Statistically, Lap Band surgery is the most effective way to lose weight and keep it off.
    And going through a surgery like that requires a lot of courage.
