What a difference 192 pounds makes!
Just four years ago Pawn Stars star Corey Harrison weighed a whopping 402 pounds, and now the reality star is proud to show off his incredible 192-pound weight loss!
Harrison tells People that he made a change after his doctor told him he was at serious risk for diabetes. “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!”
Now weighing in at a healthy 210 pounds, Corey tells the publication he “could never go back,” explaining, “It made me realize what I ate, how I ate and what I did to myself. It was a wow moment.”
“I’m actually excited to go to the gym now. I box 12 rounds a day five days a week,” he said, when describing how he keeps the weight off. “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.”
Cheers to your health, Corey!
