'Pawn Star'

Half the Hoss

He Used to Be

7/8/2011 2:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison from "Pawn Stars" dropped over 100 POUNDS in less than five months, TMZ has learned -- all thanks to hard work ... and a little help from his doctor.

Hoss tells TMZ, he decided to get lap band surgery back in February -- after his doctor diagnosed him as a prediabetic.

According to Hoss, he's already lost 115 pounds, and continues to shed the weight -- working out with a trainer 5 days a week ALONG with participating in Krav Maga fighting classes.

Hoss' weight issues have been a topic on the show -- and Rick even built a gym in the pawn shop to encourage Hoss and Chumlee to drop the weight.

Glad to see it's working out.

Crap band has one of the worse failure rates of any weight loss surgery. He'll gain it back... wait and see.

this guy could loose 100 more pounds and still looks ugly with all those tats and fugly face. and the loose skin. ewh. would not want to look under that shirt. he is known to drink a hell of alot beer. its just a matter of time before he balloons up. and chumley, if he were to loose weight too, that fugly would still look ugly with his schnauser face.

as a fellow lap band-er i want to say congrats hoss! its not an easy thing to do and screw what anyone else is saying, "hes gonan balloon up" "its a bad procedure" "the beer will make him gain weight" there all idiots !!!!! unless you get your band loosen your not going to gain any weight, and beer is almost impossible to drink more then one cuz of the carbonation. CONGRATS TO YOU! YOU LOOK GREAT , KEEP IT UP BUDDY !! LOVE THE SHOW !!!

Good for him. I hope he can keep it off. He looks so much better now. I was afraid he was going to fall over dead before he hit 40 at that weight. I have known 2 friends who had that surgery and gained back all the weight. You must change your life for good and exercise everyday and eat right. Good luck to him and please NO more tattoos. Maybe he can find a wife now? Maybe he can teach ole Chumley how to work out now too?

I doubt if he has any will power and will soon start to stretch out his stomach again. Most everyone I know that has a lap band or gastric bypass just stretches out their bellies withing a couple of years.

If Chumlee loses weight their bellies won't get in the way anymore!
