Gov. Chris Christie reveals he underwent weight-loss surgery

TODAY.com: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has revealed that he secretly underwent lap-band stomach surgery just over two months ago to lose weight for the sake of his family.

Christie, 50, told Matt Lauer in a phone conversation that he had the surgery on Feb. 16, just before the President’s Day holiday weekend. He said he resumed his very tough work schedule that Tuesday, and has not had any complications.
