A “Pawn Stars” 192-pound weight loss story is inspiring many show fans. Corey Harrison once weighed 402 pounds, but now he is looking like an entirely new man. People shared the details regarding Harrison's transformation on Thursday.

Corey Harrison says that when a doctor put him on preventative diabetes medication in 2010 he saw it as a wake-up call. The “Pawn Stars” fan favorite says he went straight from the doctor's office to a lap band center and pursued surgery almost immediately. Fans have seen some updates regarding his weight loss already, but the “Pawn Stars” 192-pound loss update is definitely making waves. Harrison says he currently weighs 210 pounds.

Harrison says he loves going to the gym now, and he boxes about five days a week. He's also gotten back into snowboarding, a sport he loved as a teen. Harrison isn't the only “Pawn Star” figure to drop some mighty pounds. Austin “Chumlee” Russell has shed about 100 pounds as well.

As fans have noticed, Harrison's weight loss has been apparent on recent seasons of the show. ABC News shares that “Big Hoss” gets fans congratulating him on the weight loss frequently. Naturally there are quite a few who don't quite realize who he is, saying that he looks like someone from the show but is “a lot skinnier and better looking than him.”

The History Channel show remains a fan favorite, and now there's a new show capturing fan's attention. “Pawnography” features some of the show's crew in a new format. As Fox News explains, it's a game show focusing on trivia questions and contestants face off against the “Pawn Stars” guys while aiming to score some pieces from the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

The new show is now airing on Thursday nights on the History Channel. New episodes of the original show are also airing on Thursday nights, making for a big night of fun for the show's fans. It sounds like the new show will be a great opportunity for fans to scope out the “Pawn Stars” 192-pound weight loss achievement accomplished by Corey Harrison.
