Chris Christie Had Weight Loss Surgery

With all of the hoopla around Gov. Chris Christie’s weight, we’ve been seeing a slightly slimmer version of him lately. Christie admitted that three months ago he had a “Lap-Band” surgery and because of it has lost 40 pounds. “Lap-Band” is a procedure “in which a silicone band is placed around the stomach to discourage overeating,” writes The New York Times.
