When Pawn Stars celeb Corey Harrison went to see his doctor, he was almost 370 pounds. His doctors gave him a wakeup call when they told him that he was in grave danger of developing diabetes. They put him on some preventive medicines for the condition and warned him to get his weight under control or risk a whole host of other health issues.

Harrison told his story to People Magazine.

“I literally drove straight from the doctor to the lap band center and had the surgery almost immediately,” Harrison said. “Back then, the surgery was too expensive for my bank account, so I had to pay with four credit cards, but it was something I had to do – I was not going to get diabetes!”

Harrison’s weight loss journey was off and running. Within six weeks of the lab-band surgery, he lost 50 pounds.

Imagine carrying three gallons of water or milk in each hand. Water weighs about eight pounds per gallon. That would be a total of 48 pounds. Now, imagine carrying that water around all day, sleeping with it sitting on your chest, held in front of you when you hold your kids.

Now, imagine setting that water down.

Harrison went on to lost another 100 pounds over the next year. That’s two pounds per week. Once the weight was off, the change was so stunning and affected Harrison so dramatically that he says he is a changed man forever.

“I could never go back to weighing as much as I did,” he said. “It made me realize what I ate, how I ate and what I did to myself. It was a ‘wow’ moment.”

And it’s not just about being lighter. He is active and fit.

“I’m actually excited to go to the gym now. I box 12 rounds a day five days a week,” Harrison admitted. “When I was a teenager I loved snowboarding, but in my 20s I was too big to strap my feet in the boards. Being able to finally touch my toes made me realize I could snowboard again, so I went out and got new gear immediately.”

    I find it hard to believe that he paid with three credit cards since he was a FF when the show started and his buddy was too ( FF= Fat F***) and he didnt lose it per se, they made his stomach so he barfed if he ate too much, guy here had it done, then he preaised it as he ate chips and donuts 80 times a day since his stomach was so small, BIL had it done too, now he eats all day, and is just as big, lets see how old drinking Cory keeps it off

    If I hear anything more of these jerks I’m going to puke they make me sick, they think their the only ones that’s lost 190 lbs who frigging care. There are tons of people that have lost a hell of a lot more than that, for instance 300 lbs, and 400 lbs so him losing 190 is nothing their all a bunch of hogs. I wish they would just go the hell away, like drop off the face of the frigging earth.
