'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.

That is not dedication that is called cheating. I lost 75 pounds by working my ass off and eating correctly that is dedication and by the way i have not gained an ounce back since i started 1 year ago.

He looks so much like his grandfather in his face that it isn't even funny.

What is all the fuss?
He didn't do anything but go to a Doctor and have his stomach tied in a knot so when he over eats he throws up!

He is a prime candidate to gain it all back in a year or two.
Watch out for the dreaded gall bladder infections that kills half the people that get that medical procedure done.
Now if he would have lost it by dieting and working out I would be more respectful.

He cheated and you guys are giving him praise?

I wonder what will become of his tatoos? Do they become distorted and weird looking?

To all the haters who say weight reduction surgery is cheating, dont you think people have tried everything else? Do you actually know what you have to go through before you are even approved for it? I believe the saying is, dont judge a person until you have walked a hundred miles in their shoes, and in the case of a Mrbidly Obese person, that 100 miles is a killer. Hoss, keep up the good work, because its not an easy way out, but do be careful of the side effects.

He's still as ugly as a mud fence. No amount of lipstick can make that pig look good. His attitude could use a major adjustment as well.

People are mean on this site. Good for Hoss he invested $20,000. grand in himself. Just eat what they tell you and exercise it's very important and good luck to you.

Well JustaGuy, I must say I am amused by your comments and your brand of sarcasm. Thanks.

Losing that much weight that quickly is very bad for you.
Not to mention because he lost it so ridiculously fast the odds that he puts it ALL back PLUS more..is extremely high.

It's a shame his doctor and trainer doesn't have a clue.

Look it up if you don't believe me.
I'm right. I'm always right.
