gastric band surgery Rex Ryan told to stop ‘body-shaming’ brother Rob
I did this gastric band, very minor procedure. I’m down 130 pounds —it’s unreal to think that I was dragging that kind of weight around.
The message has been that Rob Ryan will need to lose weight and cut his hair to gain more serious consideration for a head coaching position. Deadspin.com responded, also in jest, by asking Rex to “please stop body-shaming your beautiful brother.””I can’t even believe I need to tell you this, but your brother is beautiful just the way he is,” the website said. “… Don’t listen to squares like your brother, Rob.” But Rex Ryan could have a more serious matter in mind. Rex Ryan in 2014 said he had lost 130 pounds following gastric band surgery from when he was heaviest, during his first season as coach of the New York Jets, NJ.com reported. Rex Ryan said then he lost the weight due to concern for his longterm health. “When a doctor told me how many people 350 pounds do you know that’s over 50 years old? Not many. He said, ‘Yeah, because they don’t exist,'” said Rex Ryan, via NJ.com. “And I’m, like, I knew I had to do something. I knew I had to do something drastic because I had done the other things. So there were a couple of options, I figured out what was the best one. I decided on the Gastric band, which is a very minor procedure.
