In case you missed it, Mama June is on a weight loss journey, working to get down to a size four — and what better way to celebrate than with a little red dress?! The reality star plans to fit into a stunning getup when she’s finished her transformation.
In a previous episode of her show From Not to Hot, she returns home from her gastric bypass surgery to see niece Amber, who presents her with a “welcome home present.” Out of the bag, Mama June pulls a sexy, form-fitting, size four red dress to wear to ex Sugar Bear’s upcoming wedding.
“I had to give her some motivation,” Amber said. “I mean, she’s gotta be looking good at Sugar Bear’s wedding.”
Though the mother-of-four isn’t fully on-board at first, her niece does her best to give her motivation to fit into the stunning number.
“This is your revenge dress! This is for Sugar Bear’s wedding,” she said. “This is what you’re working towards. To go, ‘Ooh, baby baby, look at me.’”
When Mama June learns that the dress is a size four, she realizes just how much work she has to do.
“I’m a size 22-24 right now,” she said. “This is like 20 sizes smaller than me!”
Even though the blonde beauty has a long road ahead of her, it’s clear she’s making incredible progress already and gave some insight into the process when speaking to Life & Style recently.
“I just watch my portions and cut back on a lot of the carbs,” she said. “The one thing that I cannot live without is my grapes and cheese.”
And trainer Kenya Crooks told Life & Style that he’s seen an incredible metamorphosis in his client. "She's loving everything, everything, and everything," he said. "She hated a whole bunch of herself before, but now, because of the surgery and the workout piece of it, she's enjoying all phases of June. She walks around naked! That's what the kids told me."
Keep up the hard work, Mama! We’re sure you’re going to rock that red dress!
