Mama June’s Amazing 115-Pound Weight Loss Is Surprisingly Almost Invisible (PHOTOS)

OMG 19

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.

honey boo boo and mamaSpotted 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?

I'm confused...I can definitely tell she's lost weight...??? She may be exaggerating a bit, but she HAS slimmed down...

I would think we could be able to see that. I mean, I am a large woman myself (highest was 315 last July, down to 285 as of today) and while losing 10% of one's body weight wouldn't be that visible on someone as large as me, 33% sure as hell would.

I think she might be exaggerating just a bit. I do see some loss, just not a third of her weight.

She's lost a bit but not 115lbs unless she's 20' tall.

Having several friends with weight loss surgery, I can honestly say from experience, that no matter how much weight she loses, the empty skin doesn't just "go away". Which makes for a round of plastic surgeries before you can truly see the difference!

I can see it now, I've never done a gastric bypass, nor have I had a plastic surgery. But I sat through a friends nightmare with her and handled her care. It's extensive, difficult and more work that the gym, but she's happier than ever and is doing well. 

On the darker side, I invite all of you to look into "addictions" brought on by bariactric surgery. If food is your addiction, why not replace your joy with gambling? Sex? Shopping? and a number of other odd addictions that pop up to fill the empty place in the patients life. 

Good for June, i hope she lives a long and healthy life, but it wll not be an easy life.

I personally have never watched an episode, but what a rude, back handed article this is. Smh. Good for her for losing weight. Why don't you try not to be such a nozzle about it.

I can see some weight loss. She's shoved so much toxic crap down her gob that her face is like a big, boiled ham, though, and I think most obese folks tend to lose in their faces when they start taking off the weight, but she didn't. Maybe that's why some people can't see June's weight loss...?
