Pawn Stars' Corey Harrison is looking a lot thinner these days!

Since getting a lap band surgery a few years ago after his doctor put him on preventative diabetes medication, the 31-year-old reality TV star, who was 402 pounds at his heaviest weight, has since lost almost 200 pounds.

"I literally drove straight from the doctor to the lap band center and had the surgery almost immediately," Harrison recently told People of the 2010 weight loss procedure. "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 said he lost a whopping 50 pounds in the first month and a half after his surgery and lost another 100 within the first year.

"I could never go back to weighing as much as I did," Harrison, who now weighs 210 pounds, said. "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 says. "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."

Lookin' good, Corey!
