'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.

With his face slimmed down a bit he now looks exactly like what I'd picture the Old Man to look like when he was younger.

Good for him. Come on folks, give him some credit for doing something good for himself. Before you criticize others go look in your own mirror, do you need to change your lifestyle!!!

Too much negativity in the world. Give someone snaps for doing something good for once.

I totally agree with Mary's comment about people insisting on being negative instead of giving credit where it's due.

Well that's great! There is an actual neck emerging from the head now. More fat assed Americans need to push the fries aside and go for a walk everyday. You don't HAVE to be fat.

Lap Band procedure killed my sister on April 3, 2011. She was 38. It is not some sort of easy way of losing weight. If you are considering this surgery, please talk to anyone and everyone you can who has gone through it. Dying or throwing up everyday for the rest of your life is not worth being thin.

Congratulations Big Hoss and Kudos to your trainer and the rest of your "support group"! You look fantastic! Everyone must be so proud of you, especially your dad! Let's hope you never have to worry about becoming a diabetic again! Stay healthy friend, may you reach your goal weight soon!
