June, mostly known as “Mama June” Shannon has stunned the whole world by slimming down in a big way.
The lady showed that nothing is impossible, as she dropped down from the huge size 28 to size 16.
Mama June’s transformation has shocked everyone around, as she shows off her massive weight loss.
Recently, the former “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star was in news after she headed to “Botched” doctors to help with her extra skin that she had after this tremendous weight loss.
After losing a hefty number of pounds, Mama June was looking good and motivated. Though, she had some help during her weight loss journey, but she shed most of it by following the old-fashioned way.
She was there for the consultation about getting a tummy tuck to deal with her loose and saggy skin after losing weight.
Her appearance on Botched made the world surprised, as her before and after photos were shockingly displaying that how much weight she has shed down over the past few years.
However, the new sneak peek about her weight loss also put light on the cosmetic issues she wants to deal with, especially scar tissue from her four prior C-sections.
On her appearance on the show, the reality star revealed to the doctors that she has lost about 150 pounds in a year and now wants some of her excess skin removed.
The 36-year-old Mama June made shocking revelation on Botched as she was told by her doctor that she should have had tummy after giving birth to her kids.
Both Dubrow and Nassif got confused that the reality star was advised to undergo tummy tuck immediately after giving birth. In the state of shock Dubrow said, “You don’t do that.
You would never do a tummy tuck on someone who just delivered a baby.” He added, “The uterus is very large …you could never get the muscles tightened over the uterus, so it’s probably the worst time to ever consider a tummy tuck.
It’s never done.”
While Mama June was sharing the experience of her fourth C-section, she revealed even more shocking about the birth of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
June revealed how her doctor had a hard time with her fourth C-section because of all the scar tissue.
She claimed the doctor ended up cutting open Honey Boo Boo’s forehead twice during the procedure of delivery.
Dr. Paul Nassif said, “In all my life I’ve never heard of a C-section where a scalpel goes too deep and actually slices into the baby’s forehead or even touches a baby.”
He added, “How does that happen? What type of doctor did this?!”
The appearance of Mama June in the Botched has marked an amazing example for the obese individuals.
Her appearance on the show comes just days after she flaunted her weight loss in the latest photo over social media.
Previously in 2013, June lost around 100 pounds, though she said she hadn’t been trying to shed off excess pounds and slim down.
However, since then she has taken her weight loss and body transformation more seriously and has successfully dropped another 45 pounds.
Her Past Weight Loss Struggle
In the past few years, the mother of four has lost over 100 pounds, but it appears her health is still a work in progress.
The lady may have gone too far with her weight loss journey, and was hospitalized in March after collapsing at home. The doctors thought that her extreme dieting was to blame for the sudden collapse.
Keeping in view her case, the doctors scheduled a gastric sleeve surgery so she could shed some more pounds in a healthier way.
The former reality star has been pushing it with her diet lately and admitted to not eating much after walking down the stairs of her home and fainting.
The strong Mama June first opened up about her weight loss journey in July 2014. The TLC star revealed that she has dropped a massive 120 pounds of weight from her 400 pound frame.
She said that she lost most of the weight by drinking adequate amount of water and eating baked foods and fruits. June was never depressed about the way she looks.
The star previously shared, “I’ve always taken pride in how I look. I taught myself and my kids that you’ve got to be comfortable no matter what your size.”
Despite of the hospitalization incident in the quest of losing weight, Mama June didn’t stop her struggle.
The reality star showed off her slimmer figure in a swimsuit photo shoot in July 2015 after losing an additional 60 pounds. Talking about her weight loss, June shared that she’s not setting out to be a size 0.
She said, “Even if I gained the whole 100 pounds back, I’d be okay with it. A lot of larger people beat themselves up when they gain, but I’m really happy with myself.”
Mama June Shannon has undergone quite a noticeable transformation, but her journey is not over yet.

Talking about her walking routine she said, “Once you get started with the kids you don’t think about it,” she said. “You’re walking and you’re like ‘I’ve already walked three miles!”

Talking about her fitness trainer, Mama June shared, “I met with this trainer [Natasha Fett] through my manager.”
She added, “Even though she’s 3,000 miles away, she’s still very supportive through everything.
I’m just walking through the neighborhood three miles a day, and just keeping up with that and just keeping up with the kids and just kind of being on the go all the time.”
Mama June always praised her trainer and even showed her admiration on Instagram that Fett was always a text or call away for encouragement and positive enforcement about good choices.
There was a big weight loss target for June Shannon, but she didn’t just use plastic surgery as the simple solution to transform. Celebrity trainer Natasha Fett shared that she is part of “From Not to Hot” as well.
Mama June was lucky to have Natasha Fett as her personal trainer, as the popular trainer as the long list of celebrity clients including Heidi Klum, Fergie, and Bear Grylls. Her major services include offering personalized organic meals and workouts like boxing and power yoga.

She controlled her diet and watched her calories
To move forward with her weight loss progress, Mama June keep on less eating and watching down her calories by juicing and good water intake.
Though, June and her kids loved “Sketti”, the high calorie mixture of spaghetti, butter and ketchup; but they have been avoiding it lately.
The lady admitted on Instagram that she and daughter Alana Thompson have been eating smaller portions and have already said good-bye to “Go-Go Juice”.
Instead of having Red Bull and Mountain Dew, June and kids are trying true H2O all the time. During her weight loss journey Mama June has also endorsed green smoothies, and admitted, “I hate greens and vegetables, so I juice 3 days a [week].”
June has got Support
This incredible weight loss transformation of Mama June is all possible because of her supportive team.
The reality star didn’t lose all this weight alone, as she embarked on her weight loss journey with daughters Alana and Lauryn “Pumpkin” Thompson.
The ladies were the partners in the weight loss regime and have been on dieting and walking all together. Having the family support triggers a complete sense of encouragement and high morale in June to lose weight.
Also, they are accountable for their foods and found it less likelihood for cheat meals and keeping unhealthy foods in the house.
She was Realistic and Practical about Weight Loss
As Mama June was excessively overweight and highly obese, she even started getting plastic surgery.
In past years, she also got a little help losing weight from a particular area and underwent a procedure called cool sculpting. She underwent this procedure to remove some of the fat from her double chin after losing a whopping 150 pounds.
After losing so much weight, Mama June collapsed at her home and was admitted to hospital.
Doctors blamed her extensive diet approach to lose weight too quickly for her collapse, and she was scheduled to have gastric sleeve surgery.
Eventually, after losing so much weight Mama June made headlines for coming on Botched in the summer of 2016 to get skin removal surgery.
However, she didn’t get the news she wanted, as the doctors advised her she still had to shed another 75 pounds to qualify for the procedure.
June was overweight to undergo the surgery for skin removal and she accepted it gracefully. Dr. Terry Dubrow explained to June the whole scenario and told, “BMI is the way we doctors figure out who’s an appropriate candidate for surgery and who should lose some more weight”.
He added, “At 5-foot-6, 245, your BMI is 39, OK?
So we like to see a BMI of like 28, so you lose 75 pounds, you come back to us, we’ll remove that and make you happy.” The confident June promised them to shed more weight.
The strong and determined Mama June realistically accepted their decision and said, “Dr. Dubrow gave me a lot of good information and hopefully in a couple months I’ll be back and make them kind of proud and say, ‘OK, yeah, we’re gonna do surgery now.
This will be my reward for everything that I’ve done promised that she would definitely do so.”
With all her hard work and true determination towards her weight loss Mama June has certainly become an inspiration for all the obese moms who find it impossible to lose weight after having kids.
