In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he is “a little more than halfway” to his weight loss goal.
Chris Christie, 51, underwent lap band surgery in June. The surgery makes the stomach smaller, limiting the amount of food it can hold.
Before surgery, Chris Christie’s weight was estimated to be about 350 lbs.
The governor told CNN he sleeps better since losing the weight: “I didn’t feel badly at my previous weight, but I didn’t realize how poorly I slept until how well I’ve been sleeping.”
Chris Christie said weight loss is hard work but he’s hopeful.
“For the first time in 25 years I feel like I’ve got a pathway, which is really nice. Really nice not to be as frustrated as I was before,” Chris Christie said.
