New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie went ahead and got some weight loss surgery, and everyone has been wondering what made him finally take the plunge. He's been in the news for his weight for quite some time, but was there a certain catalyst??
Well he's opening up about it all now, despite saying it was nobody's bidnazz!
It turns out, he couldn't fit into his clothes — here's what he had to say:
"The things that really got me down, the moments where I would say to myself, 'Why can't I beat this? Why can't I do better?', it would be when I'd be going out with Mary Pat (his wife) on a Friday night or Saturday night. I'd be changing out of my professional clothes … and would go to casual clothes that I didn't wear a lot, and then something wouldn't fit."
Chris wasn't overweight for no reason, and having the surgery isn't a magical fix. He's also addicted to food, and has even given interviews about it for books about the subject. He has a hard road ahead of him, but this is a great first step when all others have failed.
We're just glad he's doing something about it before it becomes a real health issue!
