“Pawn Star” loses 192 pounds and his impressive weight loss journey goes viral. Corey Harrison from the History network hit reality show “Pawn Stars” 192-pound weight loss has people talking and is even inspiring some to take action on their end.

When the hit show’s spinoff “Pawnography” debuted last night at 10 p.m. EST some fans probably noticed a visibly smaller Corey Harrison who went from an all time weight high of 402 lbs to a way healthier 210 lbs.

Corey Harrison started this process in 2010 after his doctor put him on preventative diabetes medication, this was more than he could bear. Harrison was shaken to the core by the diagnostic, so he decided it was time to change his ways and adopt a healthier lifestyle.

What did he do? How did he lose so much weight? The first concrete step the reality star took was to go see a specialist from a lap band center. The 31-year-old did not waste much time and had his surgery done very soon after.

Harrison who was not very rich at the time, used four different credit cards to pay for the procedure. He told People Magazine that he was extremely motivated for diabetes not to be part of his life.

From there on, the weight loss process started kicking in. The “Pawn Star” lost 50 lbs. in the month after the surgery and over 100 lbs. in the year that followed. The journey continued with him losing another 42 lbs. thanks to going to the gym regularly and boxing.

The TV star is happier now that he can do some of things he had stopped doing for very long time after the weight gain. He is now able to snowboard again like he used to do in his 20s. If you found all of this quite inspiring, well you are not the only one.

Harrison’s “Pawn Stars” co-star Austin “Chumlee” Russell was so touched by his friend’s journey that he decided to drop 95 pounds on his own, going from 320 lbs. to 225 now.

Naysayers will say why didn’t the “Pawn Star” opt for a diet which is less risky. Diets only work about 20 percent of the time and they are not for everyone.
