How many pounds has New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie shed since his weight-loss surgery last year?

Enough to wear a T-shirt proclaiming: “Man enough to be a Girl Scout.”

The governor, a 51-year-old Republican who may run for president in 2016, obliged when offered the blue shirt by a Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore representative at his 120th town hall meeting today in Brick. He tugged it over his French-cuffed dress shirt, with room to spare, to applause from an audience of 500.

“She just said to me, ’Oh, by the way, governor, we have smaller sizes since you’re getting so tiny,’” he said.

Christie underwent gastric band surgery in February 2013. He hasn’t disclosed publicly how much he weighed at the time, how much he has lost or his goal. He has said he works out four days a week and called the surgery life-changing.
