Gov of New Jersey Christie....I've liked him for a while now. Just something about his no bs kind of attitude I really like. He seems real...not plastic, flashy political type. Cool guy I am guessing!
And his size has come up before too, with him just playing it down....its not a political issue, so he shouldn't have to talk about it right?? Well...he is now. But in a very cool way.
He had the lap band surgery done earlier this year. To slim down to look better for a political future? Nope. For his family! Because he still has young kids and wants to be there for them and his wife in the next 50 years.
Pretty cool reason to do it! And then...he kept quiet about it. No huge press on it...no big reveal of weight loss...just quietly it came out and now people are making it a big deal. Which it really is. Its a major life style change....a life change.
He says he is just taking it day by day tho. Not counting his pounds or days or anything like that. He said people will be able to just see the change in him. And even he is still getting used to the changes. He says he isn't hungry all the time anymore. Which is a big change for him....but a good one.
I have a friend who had the full on gastric surgery done years ago. And it worked. She still looks amazing to this day....but she says its not easy...and she wished she could have done it without the surgery.
I admit, it did make me think for a moment tho...about having it done. For now, I think I will just continue to beat myself working out ( tapout xt!!! ) and trying to eat healthy ( some days are better then others!)...but I do admire Christies style in handling all of this. He didn't you tube it...didn't make a big press splash on it....he did it for himself and his family.
I am liking him more and more.
