“I haven’t done any surgeries … no diet pills … never went to the gym,” “Mama” June Shannon says to TMZ. “But with the show I’ve been more active.”
According to Shannon, when she began taping the TLC reality show in January 2011, she weighed 365 lbs., and she now says she weighs 263 lbs. That’s a 102-pound weight loss.
Mama June attributes the weight loss not to the magical wonders of sketti, or aggressive extreme couponing sprees, but, at least in part, to her family’s hit TLC reality show.
While she may have recently gone blonde, June says she doesn’t feel pressured by fame to lose weight. It just happened.
“They have me running around and going different places … I guess it’s paying off,” June says.
