'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.

He still smokes and will likely die before he hits 40. Probably got hepC from all those discount tats.

Damn... Hoss just got some street cred IMO. Krav Maga ain't no joke. If he's not terrible at it.

P.S. He looks so slim in the second picture! Wearing black makes you skinny which is apparently why him and Chumlee only wear black. lol

@Chum


OK, we never met, and I'm guessing you don't read alot, but go back to where I wrote something about how the Surgeon General stated that balanced meals are a healthy part of not dying.

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.

glad he's slimmed down but concerned at the speed of it all- not medically best to do it so rapidly...remember when Oprah did ti that fast and most came back on

wish him luck in his lifestyle changes
and hoping that he serves as an inspiration to Chumlee that he will be able to do it too
just hope he does it a bit slower pace to give him better odds in keeping it off for good

they are in Vegas after all..it's all about the odds ;-)

That's awesome! Congrats big Hoss. This show is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. I really enjoy watching it even though I can't really figure out why. Keep it up Hoss... and get Chum of his ass too.
