We all know Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, as the spunky little girl from TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras.” She survived off of “Go-Go juice” and liked to play with her belly rolls. Shortly after we met this Alana, we were introduced to her mother, June Shannon, who was just as… spunky.
They were given their own reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” where we met the rest of the crazy fam, but during their rise to fame the one thing people couldn’t stop talking about was Mama June’s weight. The family wasn’t shy about their love for food, but recently Mama June decided it was time for a change.
Well, she kept going. Mama reportedly weighed 460 pounds, and has dropped down to a size four after losing 300 pounds. She recently debuted her new body on the finale of her reality show “Mama June: From Not To Hot.”
In addition to good old fashioned diet and exercise, Mama June underwent five surgeries to remove excess skin and help her get her dream body. The surgeries meant having to remove her “turkey neck” which she said was more famous than her and admitted she was going to miss.
But don’t worry Mama June, if you ever want your double chin back, you can have mine!
In a clip from the show’s season finale, she says ‘“And now I feel like becoming the person on the outside that I always felt like on the inside.”
I never get emotional over TV shows, especially ones about screaming kids wearing their body weight in hairspray and makeup, but it was touching to see how far she has come. I’ve worked my ass off to lose five pounds or to avoid eating that extra slice of pizza, so I can only imagine how difficult it must’ve been to shed over 300.
