Austin 'Chumlee' Russell was constantly messed with on Pawn Stars by his coworkers about his weight and size — but now that he has a super hot and slim girlfriend… and he's lost SEVENTY FIVE pounds… who will they fat-shame now??
And it's thanks to that fit girlfriend that's he's gotten healthier, because she's also a chef!
We're so glad that he decided to get healthy at his age (31), because it only gets harder the older you get, and he's young enough to actually live out a VERY healthy life!
Tany Hyjazi started dating Chumlee last year and it's been a breeze to lose weight with her fab cooking and support!
We say breeze, but we actually know it took a lot of hard work on his part too — and we're impressed! He has now sworn off junk food and now eats a well-balanced diet, starting the day with a juice smoothie and works out SIX days a week.
Here's what he said about a big reason behind the health change:
'My dad died from pancreatic cancer at 54, two weeks before the show aired. I’m making sure I’m eating my vegetables and staying away from the red meat.'
We're so glad he's made this decision!
Also, he joins Corey 'Big Hoss' Harrison from the show who lost 100+ pounds! Corey had the lap-Band gastric band fitted, though, and those 100 pounds dropped in about five months!
Congrats to both of them! Amazeballz!
Check out some BEFORE pics of him (below)!!
