We see you, Mama June! On Monday, August 12, the longtime reality star — who celebrated her 40th birthday on August 10 — was spotted leaving a Mexican restaurant in her hometown of Hampton, Georgia. Based on June’s slimmer figure, it seems as though she’s kept up with the healthier lifestyle she adopted on her hit television series From Not to Hot.
For those of you who didn’t tune in, no worries! We’ve got you covered. Basically, June documented her entire dramatic transformation on national television — including undergoing a gastric sleeve surgery. At her heaviest, June was 460 pounds. After the procedure, she lost a whopping 300 pounds.
Unsurprisingly, June’s transformation didn’t stop there. The mother of four continued to maintain her physique and balanced diet with the help of personal trainer Kenya Crooks. At one point, Mama June was comfortably rocking a size 4. As with any fitness journey, though, June fell on some hard times and admitted to gaining back 50 pounds. Even so, based on her appearance today, it’s clear that she’s doing her best! Which is all that matters, right?
Unfortunately for her fans, however, June’s social media presence has been pretty spotty in recent months. In fact, she hasn’t posted on Instagram since June 17 … gasp. That said, June’s followers still left kind wishes and words of encouragement on her birthday. “Happy Birthday, Mama June! Hope you’re doing well,” one user commented. “Miss you, Mama June! Happy Birthday,” added another.
“Been rewatching old seasons of your show. Come back! Happy Birthday,” a third person chimed in, while a fourth echoed, “Love you and your crazy beautiful personality!” We second that. Here’s hoping we all see more of Mama June in the coming weeks.
