'Mama June' star June Shannon says she is happy with her new body and will never go back to her old weight
Mama June opens up about her weight loss transformation and says how happy she feels after it.
June Shannon is no more the person you once saw on Honey Boo Boo and it is all because of the tremendous weight loss the reality star displayed after appearing on WeTv reality show, Mama June: From Not to Hot. In an interview with InTouch Weekly, she recalls how her life has changed after that.
Even though she is happy with the way she looks now, there are times when she feels the pressure to maintain her weight and looks. "People think that I'm going to gain the weight back. But hello, I've almost been at this [weight] for a year and a half and I'm not gaining!" she said.
However, she does admit that there are times when her weight fluctuates but she had made up her mind of not going back to the time when she was obese. "My current weight is like 165 to 170," she said. "I just try to watch what I eat and exercise when I can. I don't ever want to go back," she added.
In order to get into perfect shape, June had spent nearly $75,000 to have gastric sleeve surgery, breast augmentation and 9 lbs. of skin removal surgery on her “turkey neck,” “bat wings” and stomach. But now, the reality star has decided not to get any more plastic surgery done.
She believes that she did what I wanted to do and that’s it!" After showing her weight loss, June said that there are many out there who fail to recognize her and it is not until she speaks that they realize who she is. “It’s kind of crazy. A lot of people don’t recognize who I am until I talk,” she said in an interview with People.
“It’s kind of like I’m in my own disguise. Normally when I walk through the streets, everybody notices me, and now it’s like nobody [does].”
