Redwood City, Calif – He’s struggled with his weight for years and even argued with the former Filipina White House doctor over it.
But now New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has slimmed down after secretly having surgery. The 50 year-old Christie had lap-band
surgery in February—the procedure where doctors put a tube at the top of your stomach to make you feel full faster.

Christie has since shed 40 pounds and says losing weight has nothing to do with a possible run for the White House in 2016.

Christie’s weight loss comes three months after former White House doctor, Filipina Connie Mariano said that Christie yelled at her over the phone, after she told CNN that the governor could die in office, if he did not lose weight.

    good for christie to voluntarily take the lap band surgery, loosing 40 lbs in 81 days as of today’s date will not be possible with ordinary dieting counting calories, where hunger sensation is the reason why calorie restricted diet almost, always is unsuccessful.
