Mama June "before" losing over 100-pounds.
You go Mama! Not only is she rocking a new blonde 'do, but she's getting healthy too. We were wowed when Honey Boo Boo's mom June Shannon first announced she had shed 100 pounds a couple months ago, going form 365 to 263. Seriously impressive, right? Now the redneck reality star has shed even more weight. There's just one problem. She has now dropped a whopping 115 pounds but pretty much looks exactly the same as she did the day Here Comes Honey Boo Boo debuted. Take a look.
Spotted in New York City recently, Britain's Daily Mail compared her new look to Britney Spears. Now, I wouldn't exactly go that far. She credits the miraculous drop in weight with the fact she is more active than she has ever been. Instead of just parking on the couch every night, she is traveling the country with Honey Boo Boo, visiting TV shows, and making public appearances.
While I am proud of the fact she's getting healthier, I have to admit, I can't really tell she has shed a single pound. It's totally perplexing. When someone drops 115-pounds, you expect them to look like they've lost 115-pounds, don't you? Of course, there are cases where someone is so large that it's difficult to tell when they start losing weight. But June wasn't so enormous where losing all that weight wouldn't be noticeable. She lost nearly one-third of her body weight. She should look entirely different.
Perhaps to get to the point where she actually sees a difference, she'll have to change her notoriously unhealthy eating habits. She has long been criticized for her family's diet of fried foods, ribs, and cheese balls. Swapping those those fatty treats with more low-fat, grilled, and baked dishes will make a huge difference in her weight and her waistline.
Are you surprised that June has lost so much weight but doesn't actually look much slimmer?
