See What Corey Harrison From “Pawn Stars” Lost!
A person! Or at least the weight of a person! The “Pawn Stars” star and heir to the Harrison TV/Pawn throne had lap band surgery and lost a whopping 192 pounds! What a difference!
His motivation? He was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. He tells his story here “See ‘Pawn Stars’ Corey Harrison After 192-Pound Weight Loss”
“Harrison, 31, told People magazine that at his highest he weighed more than 400 pounds, but that after the doctor put him on preventative diabetes medication four years ago, he decided it was time for a change.
‘I literally drove straight from the doctor to the lap-band center and had the surgery almost immediately,” Harrison told the magazine. “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!’
The third generation pawn-shop owner said he dropped 50 pounds in the first few weeks and another 100 in the first year after having his surgery.”
Good for him! “Pawn Stars” is one of the few “reality” shows I actually enjoy. It doesn’t try to be more than it is. Glad he’s gotten his weight under check!
