 "I know it sounds crazy to say that running for president is minor, but in the grand scheme of things, it was looking at Mary Pat and the kids and going, 'I have to do this for them, even if I don't give a crap about myself,'" NJ Gov Chris Christie said about his top secret Lap Band Surgery in February

I like this man.   Even if he is a REPUBLICAN..... 
Any politician who has the guts to say "...running for president is minor........I don't give a crap about myself"  is #1 in my book.
And, anyone who has the guts to tell a reporter this....well, I just think he's pretty swell.  
You go Gov!!!  Sending fist pumps from Pennsylvania! 

 But, you know.....I gotta ask....
Why oh why is this national news? 
You know, I had Lap Band surgery too......did I make national news?
Maybe you even had Lap Band surgery......did you make national news?
Um, no.
And, no.   

Okay, I admit it, I'm jealous.....I always wanted to be a celeb.

Isn't it funny how the media reports on a guy's weight/health issues and decisions, as opposed to shrieking about how fat some starlet has let herself get (when she's probably a size 4 instead of a 00!) Props to Gov. Christie for focusing on his health - we all know it's not an easy road.

I think it was really brave of him to have the surgery- every reason he stated is the best reason to do it, and you know what? I like his brash style! Let's see him do great with a band, and become our poster boy!

Imagine if he became President one day? The first lap banded President? I would vote for him anyway, because I love his style, but the band might be a reason to anyway!
