New Jersey Governor Underwent Secret Weight-Loss Surgery

Posted: Updated:

 

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says it was family -- not a possible presidential bid -- that convinced him to get weight loss surgery.

Christie just revealed he had lap-band surgery in February.

He was asked by reporters why he kept his decision to get surgery under wraps for three months.

Gov. Chris Christie/(R) New Jersey: "In terms of keeping it secret, it's nobody else's business. From my perspective and my family's perspective the steps I've taken recently are for me are for me, Mary, Pat and the kids. And if asked about it I never would have lied about it. But it's not anyone else's business but mine and so that's the reason i made the decision i did. That's all."

Christie made headlines in February after he poked fun of his weight during an interview with David Letterman. He's also talked seriously about his struggles -- saying that same month that he was "making the best effort" he could.
