Report: Christie had weight loss surgery
The New Jersey governor reportedly underwent lap-band surgery to lose weight
Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., reportedly underwent lap-band surgery to lose weight, according to the New York Post.
From the Post:
The Garden State governor agreed to the operation at the urging of family and friends after turning 50 last September.
He told The Post he was thinking of his four kids and how it was time to start improving his health when he decided to have the procedure.
“I’ve struggled with this issue for 20 years,” he said. “For me, this is about turning 50 and looking at my children and wanting to be there for them.”
