You all remember Mama June from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”, the reality series where she raised her beauty pageant princess daughter Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo. But Mama June has gone through an amazing transformation. Well, more like INCREDIBLY amazing! Not only has she shed the pounds, but she’s brought sexy back, and looks healthier than ever. It seems like someone has been saying “Honey No, No” to carbs and sugar!
1. IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE
After dishing out plates of spaghetti noodles topped with tons of butter and ketchup, 37-year-old Mama June decided it was time to drop some pounds and get her health back in check.
2. WHO COULD BLAME HER?
Of course, you couldn’t blame Mama June for eating her pain away. Not only had her then-husband Sugar Bear allegedly cheated on her with both men and women, but she also had to kick her rebound boyfriend Mark McDaniel, to the curve after he molested June’s oldest daughter, Chickadee.
3. MURDERING EVERY INCH OF FAT
There was no denying that Mama June was plus size and her eating habits were very unhealthy. But after getting an invite from her cheating ex-husband Sugar Bear’s wedding to Jennifer Lamb, the reality star decided to show him what he was missing.
4. CHANGING THE OUTLOOK ON FOOD
In order for Mama June to stick to her diet and look as banging as firecrackers in the 4th of July, she had to change the way she looked at food, which involved cutting down on the massive portions she used to stuff into her mouth.
5. HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW?
The reality TV star underwent gastric sleeve back in May 2015, and skin removal surgery later down the line in order to shed the pounds. During one of her surgeries, her kids were left worrying about her after the excess skin removal procedure lasted about five whopping hours.
6. THE MILITARY-STYLE TRAINING THAT SAVED HER BUTT
It wasn’t just the surgeries that helped Mama June shed the excess pounds. Shortly after recovering from one of her many procedures, Mama June hired a drill sergeant-style personal trainer named Kenya Crooks to help her achieve her weight loss goal.
7. FROM NOT TO HOT
You couldn’t expect the reality star not to document her massive overhaul, so WEtv was on hand to record the intimate details of her transformation for a new reality series called “Mama June: From Not To Hot”.
8. CLEANING OUT THE KITCHEN
To lose the weight, Mama June had to do a little spring cleaning in her kitchen, which involved getting rid of indulgences like ice cream and candy. Although she was on the verge of giving up, she really wanted the skinnier person inside of her to finally come out and work it like there was no tomorrow!
9. BOOB JOB GALORE
Body fat and excess skin weren’t the only things that Mama June had to get rid of. She also had to reduce the size of her breasts from a 44 long to a 36 up. Anyone can honestly see that she still looks undeniably curvy, but in a very seductive way. It’s never too late to start taking care of yourself, sister! Well done.
10. SLOW CLAPPING THIS WOMAN
On an episode of “From Not to Hot”, Mama June admitted that “I’ve never felt this good before. Eating healthy gives me a lot more energy, which makes me work out harder and makes me lose weight faster.” Now that she’s gone from 450 lbs to 199 lbs, Mama June is ready to wear that size 4 revenge dress to Sugar Bear’s wedding and start rocking hard! Say goodbye to your old self forever, Mama!
