Mama Junes entire weight loss journey was documented on season one of the WE TV show “Mama June: From Not to Hot.” Now that the second installment of the show is airing, Mama June’s body has changed even more. The reality star revealed that she gained back 50 pounds due to her unhealthy eating habits.
On last night’s episode of “From Not to Hot,” June Shannon and Honey Boo Boo finally get to compete in the mother daughter pageant that they’ve been preparing for for weeks. The two fumbled with the talent portion of the competition when Mama forgot her dance moves but the duo was redeemed with their inspiring speeches about being yourself.
June told the audience: “You’ve got to love yourself no matter who you are. I was 350 pounds to 150 pounds and now I’m back up to 200 pounds. People just need to learn who they are.”
The southern belles ended up placing second which is pretty good for June’s first pageant. Honey Boo Boo even won Miss Congeniality for her message on self-acceptance.
The most revealing part of the program was when Shannon was put in two size 18 dresses — a big jump from the size four that she was wearing last season.
She spoke to Radar Online about the weight gain stating: “It’s mentally and physically exhausting for me. I’ve been kind of beating myself up, kind of situation.”
The mother is back to her old eating habits after receiving lap band surgery and sticking to a very strict meal plan and workout routine.
Unfortunately, the WE star has been under immense stress due o her health struggles documented last season.
Her vision problems have caused her to have to have four operations. The last one almost made her miss the birth of her granddaughter but luckily June was able to make it to the hospital in the nick of time.
