Talk about an incredible transformation! Fans couldn’t believe their eyes on Friday, March 31, when Mama June finally unveiled her remarkable weight loss on television — dropping from a size 24 to a size 4.
“Just 11 months ago, I weighed 352 pounds and I never thought this weight loss would be possible,” she told the camera. “It’s been a long road through all these three surgeries, struggling with my emotional eating, these intense workouts, a dress I thought I would never be able to fit into, dealing with my ex’s fiancée/soon-to-be Alana’s stepmom, and all the while I’m trying to stay healthy and good for my kids.”
June, who initially started this weight loss journey as a way to make former hubby Sugar Bear jealous on his wedding day, underwent gastric bypass and skin removal surgeries as well as multiple plastic surgery procedures, including a tummy tuck and breast lift. “I worked my a– off working out, eating healthy, and now it’s like everything’s coming full circle,” she said. “I’m becoming the person on the outside that I felt I was like on the inside, it’s kind of crazy.”
The 38-year-old previously explained to Life & Style how her diet has changed since committing to healthier habits. “I just watch my portions and cut back on a lot of the carbs. The one thing that I cannot live without is my grapes and cheese,” she admitted.
According to a report, June would love for 12-year-old daughter Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo) to follow in her footsteps. “June is in talks with the network for a follow-up show that will feature the rest of her family embracing a healthier lifestyle,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Now that June is firmly committed to eating a healthy, balanced diet herself, she’s keen to get her kids on board. It helps that it would make for a great TV show too!”
But it looks like Alana might put up a fight. The former Toddlers & Tiaras star has openly talked about embracing her curves, and didn’t want to change her routine while watching her mom lose weight. Scroll through the gallery below to see pics of June’s amazing transformation!
