      I would wish that no one ever be fat. I was 325 + lbs, so I understand why anyone would have the surgery. The problem is what the USDA/medical professionals tell us to eat only makes us fatter.

      The surgery will help, but unless he does a complete change in his diet, it won't make any difference in the long run.

      Let me tell you, as a former heavyweight (and not in a boxing sense), I spent more than 30 years grasping at straws. The last one I grabbed for was hCG, and it worked for me. There was a caveat attached to it though, I can never go back to eating anything like before. I had to go completely Paleo, 99.9% of the time.

      Good luck to the Gov.

        Poor guy. Ambitious, smart, likeable enough to get elected, and his being fat is a political liability. I hope the day I start judging people by their looks or weight that lightening strikes me dead.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          His wife is a Goldman Sachs executive, he vetoed marijuana bills, and NJ transit blows now. Christie can suck it.

For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

            He's not just a little less than telegenic -- he's really enormous. Fair or not, voters might read that as being the result of having little control.

            But Christie's main problem is that he got chummy with Obama after Sandy. His right-wing rising star has been eclipsed.

                My issue with this is the whole "quick fix" American mentality. Was he required to undergo nutrition counseling or lose 10 pounds all by himself? nope. Eat up, America, lap-bands for everyone!

                  He rides a helicopter for the fuck of it (his class in general, that isn't a reference to an attempt at a media manufactured scandal), so, "America" and the general rules and customs of our people are alien to him as a man of his class.

                    not really. lap-band and gastric bypass is widely available to anyone with insurance. it used to be that you had to be morbidly obese, now I see commercials for it and people have gotten it for being only 30-40 pounds overweight. His "class" definitely got him the best surgeons and a quick surgery, but all you really need to be is fat and hold some insurance and you're set.

                      I know- I am saying, any kind of criticism people have of american culture is not relevant to trans-national corporatists who happen to live in/plunder the USA. He is not representative of anyone actually on the street, I'm saying.

                        I don't understand why people get weightloss surgery. It just works by making you less able to eat a lot, so it's not like you don't have to change your eating habits. I know changing your eating habits is really hard. On the Today show, they said that people regain the weight in many cases.... I guess it works for enough people. But damn, even at 213, no way in hell would I have wanted surgery with that many side effects. Why the hell would you do that unless your choice was "lose a ton of weight now or die"?

                        I guess good luck to him. It seemed to work for Al Roker.

                          He's fat, lazy, motivated solely by self-interest, and refuses to make any permanent changes to his health. Yep, you're right, totally not representative of anyone actually on the street.

                            There's plenty of information on the internet about long-term effects, complications, and the real success rate, which is how many people actually achieve their target weight and keep it off.

                            I knew a woman who had the surgery years before. She gained all the weight back. A man I knew who had had the surgery many years before almost died of complications. He had emergency surgery to save his life and his insurance company refused to pay.

                            A lot of people approach the surgery thinking the surgery will do it for them, when in fact they still need to follow a strict diet if they are to lose and maintain. And it isn't any easier.
