Lap band fit for a governor

New Jersey governor Chris Christie has come clean with a secret.

Despite his flippant attitude about his weight on national TV, it turns out a very real concern has taken him into the operating room for weight loss surgery. So, now, he does on prime time again, this time telling everyone to watch him lose a significant amount of weight in the coming weeks.

The governor's plan includes lap band surgery, where doctors take an adjustable band and place it around the top of the stomach, making the stomach smaller, forcing him to eat less and get full faster.

Experts say lap band surgery can be a good option for those who need to lose more than 100 pounds.
