David Moore of Dallas Morning News writes:
After Newton's father passed away several months ago, he worried that he might not be around to watch his 12-year-old son grow up. Newton weighed 396 pounds and suffered from diabetes and high blood pressure.
On April 19 Newton underwent what is called a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, where up to 75 percent of the stomach is removed. Since then he has altered his diet and worked out twice a day, riding his bike and lifting weights.
The Nate Newton that stood on the sidelines Sunday weighed 263 pounds.
He has lost 133 pounds, his diabetes is in remission and he no longer has high blood pressure.
