Christie reveals secret stomach surgery to lose weight
By TARA PALMERI and BETH DEFALCO Last Updated: 3:59 AM, May 7, 2013 Posted: 3:01 AM, May 7, 2013
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie secretly underwent lap-band stomach surgery to aggressively slim down for the sake of his wife and kids, he revealed to The Post last night.
The Garden State governor agreed to the operation at the urging of family and friends after turning 50 last September.

I can't notice it but it's obviously a good start. I wish RINO Cristie the best of health.
Oh good! They won’t have to widen doorways anymore.
“For the sake of his wife and kids”
Lol. Among other reasons.
His recent politics aside, I’m glad to hear it. He’s seriously risking a stroke and/or diabetes with that level of obesity.
My take on Christie?? After the half flag incident and the I Love Obama gig...He’s a political jerk.
That’s a nasty operation. Doctors are constantly pushing it; all he needed to do was Weight Watchers.
Yeah; he’s running for President.
He’s got a long way to go.
What do the doctors recommend for reducing a FAT HEAD!!!!!
And keep him in NJ. No longer can stomach him, stood up twice for Obama regarding superstorm Sandy.
That needs will power. If Christie had it he wouldn't have weighed 350 (that's a guess but he looked at least that). Not mocking him. It's a difficult problem that those who don't have it find hard to understand.
You beat me to it!
Glad he's doing something about it, but I've known people who've plowed right through the lap band and have eaten enough to maintain the weight.
“Weight Loss Surgery” is another way of saying “No Willpower.” I dropped over 150 lb. after college by simply modifying my diet and exercising every day. It requires an intense commitment to better health, something Christie obviously doesn’t have time to do. Sad.
They’ll use this against him if he ever runs for a higher office.
Gastric bypass surgery is indeed very “nasty”, but Christie didn’t have that type of surgery; he had lap band surgery, which is much less invasive and very low risk. As for your assertion that all Christie had to do was go to Weight Watchers: give me a break. People who have big appetites and who eat when they are stressed have been failing at WW for decades. Christie was smart to have the surgery.
Lap band brain surgery?
He’s running for vice president.
