‘Honey Boo Boo’ Star Mama June Is A Size 4 Now After Shedding 300 Pounds.
Mama June has been killing it ever since she decided to give herself a slimming makeover, and if you saw her now, you probably wouldn't recognize her. Oh, come on! You all remember her from "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," don't you? How could you not? Her skills as a mother were always coming into question.
Now her daughter, Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, will have to take a backseat because Mama June has shed some pounds and is looking awesome than ever. In fact, after a month away from the spotlight, she's back, and she's soo hot.
It's been little over a month since we last saw Mama June, but a lot has happened.
We'd dare say that it was time for a change after dishing out plates of spaghetti noodles topped with tons of butter and ketchup as if it were her last meal. Then, the 37-year-old decided to shed quite a few pounds.
The reality star is now 300 pounds lighter and she wants the world to know it too.
ack in April, she sported a red sleeveless gown, while standing alongside her 11-year-old daughter Alana.
Mama June has achieved this OMG miracle by undergoing countless surgeries.
But although her daughter, Alana wasn't happy with the idea of her mom's weight loss mission, she eventually came around after seeing the results.
Of course, you couldn't blame Mama June for the way she looked initially.
She was getting over the fact that her man, Sugar Bear, had slept around with men and women, while she tried to raise a daughter all by her lonesome.
To make things worse, she didn't have much luck with the next guy that came around either.
Mark McDaniel got the boot after he tried to molest Mama June's oldest daughter, Chikadee. Since then, it's been a roller coaster of emotions.
Instead of wallowing in self-pity, Mama June decided to do something about it.
So she took the high road to a better look and underwent gastric bypass and skin removal surgery in 2015. But that's okay, because as she herself confessed, "it's got to be about me." Still, she didn't want to disappoint everyone by not being the skinny Mama June that everyone was looking forward to seeing.
Her incredible transformation wasn't easy, and she was afraid that something could have gone wrong.
Had she gone the same route as Joan Rivers, her daughter would have been motherless, but after hours of excess skin removal, which last five hours, Mama June came out on top.
Mama June isn't the only thing shining when she's out and about.
She's also showing off her brand new super size 4 figure for the world to see, and while she's at it, she's also showing off her bling too.
Being plus size isn't always easy, especially in a world that's hell bent on superficial perfection.
During a TV confessional, she said that "I feel like I'm becoming the person on the outside that I always felt like I was on the inside."
She's thinner than ever and she wants the world to know it.
So when the former "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star stepped out for the first time to promote WE TV's "Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta" premiere, many viewers were surprised that she had managed to keep her post-gastric sleeve surgery weight off. In Mama June's case, those jeans simply won't stay up. Maybe she should invest in a belt to avoid the pap taking a shot of an unavoidably embarrassing wardrobe malfunction. Mama June is able to fit in tiny jeans and t-shirts, and now she's ready to let it all hang out and enjoy her body. We don't blame her, though!
Mama June claimed that she was under a lot of pressure from the whole wide world.
In fact, she was until recently still struggling to lose enough weight so that she could fit into the red dress that she initially wanted to wear to Sugar Bear's wedding.
Despite this amazing slim-down, she's still getting hate from some people.
Obviously, it's not because of the weight, but more likely because of the way she raised her daughter to become a beauty pageant on "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." But as you can tell, she just doesn't care.
Even when she looked like this, Mama June knew there was a slimmer version of herself on the inside.
It took some effort, and a lot of money, not to mention some painful surgeries, but eventually she was able to become 300 pounds lighter.
People Magazine was mesmerized by Mama June's new look and wanted to shine a light on it.
She might have never been doing an exclusive photoshoot if she hadn't hired a drill sergeant-style personal trainer named Kenya Crooks to help her achieve this weight loss. Oh, did you think it was all surgical? Wrong!
Mama June also had to change her lifestyle completely, and that included cleaning out the kitchen.
After getting rid of indulgences like ice cream and candy from the fridge and pantry, she began to notice the skinnier version of herself finally starting to come out.
To go from a size 24 to a size 4, she needed to change her outlook on food.
It wasn't just about getting rid of junk food, but also about cutting down on the massive portions she used to shovel into her mouth.
You didn't expect WE TV to pass up an opportunity to document this unbelievable makeover, did you?
The reality series called "Mama June: From Not To Hot" was created to document the massive transformation, and in doing so, record all the highs and lows that helped the reality start to achieve her goal.
Mama June has never felt this good or looked this good in her life.
Eating healthy and working out more has allowed her to lose weight faster and wear a killer dress, and thanks to a lot less excess skin and a boob reduction, she now has the curvy shape she's always wanted. Well done!
