Mama June (real name June Shannon) stunned fans when she recently dropped tons of weight. We’re talking major weight loss here… like hundreds of pounds. The reality star first made a name for herself alongside her daughter on the show Toddlers & Tiaras and then landed the family spin-off Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
But her new show Mama June: From Not to Hot showcases a totally different side and size of the woman. She managed to go from 460 pounds to a size four.
The question is… how exactly did she do that? Read on to find out.
10. She Dropped The Junk Food
Of course, Mama June had to drastically change her diet to start the weight loss process. She traded in her old staples of snacks like cheese balls and started making healthier choices. Mama June was aware that some of her food choices just didn’t hold a place in her future.
9. She Started Working Out
In addition to eating healthier, Mama June also had to start working out. After she had dropped a few pounds on her own she decided to undergo bariatric surgery. When she recovered from that she started working out with a trainer three days a week and dropped the rest of the weight.
8. She Dropped Drinking Soda
Drinks are just as crucial to monitor as food, if not more. Mama June cut out soda entirely before she changed the rest of her diet. Her daughter Pumpkin was in a car accident and suffered a brain injury, and was told by a neurologist not to drink soda anymore. Mama June heard the message as well. Read on to hear what other food she gave up.
7. She Stopped Emotional Eating
Mama June admitted that she had some emotional eating issues, which can make it really hard to make healthy choices. She came to terms with it throughout her process, and the results she started to see helped her remain committed to the goal of getting healthy both emotionally and physically.
6. She Remained Patient
Mama June was aware that it was going to be a process losing that much weight, and she stayed as patient as possible throughout the process. “Take it one day at a time. Don’t ever give up. You don’t have to be perfect, just take it at the pace you want to. It’s all in moderation, especially the eating!”
