'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.

Oh wait...good job because you have surgery to put a band around your stomach to make you stop eating like a pig. See this shows you that this kid never had to work hard at anything (except getting full)...then daddy's money bails him out with surgery the easy way. He is just like a hoarder and if you take that lap band off he bee 400 lbs again in 5 months.

Anyone that had have a personal trainer five time/week and added krav maga training hade lost weight.
Don^t think he had needed the operation tbh.

Btw. he seem much more mellow now.
Maybe cause he got hes kicked as in kravmaga practise and cant hide behind hes family counter :-)
Become little more down to earth now.

Cudos to him! He seem much more healthy.
He should totally write about what he have done, what he now eat, how much, how much he train and if he got the other three to start doing thing about theyre weight.
That could be a cool inspiration for others.

He's still got a little spare tire going on but that's a huge difference. Hopefully he'll inspire Chumlee to get healthy and loose some poundage too.

Regardless of his weight loss, he still has that "Porky Pig" looking mug on that cartoon inked up body of his.
