Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison, a cast member of the Las Vegas-set reality show "Pawn Stars," says he has lost about 115 pounds during the past year.
"I was watching this lawyer's commercial and it was talking about the side effects of this drug and I was on that medication because of my weight," Harrison told People.com.
"I went and got a Lap-Band put in and the weight just started falling off. It was like someone took a backpack full of rocks off of you."
Thanks to the Lap-Band, a protein-heavy diet and workouts with a trainer five days a week, Harrison told People.com he is now off of the medication and weighs in at about 250 pounds.
