Honey Boo Boo Star June Shannon Lost 102 Pounds in 2 Years!
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon's makeover didn't end with a newly blonde hairstyle. The 33-year-old TLC reality star dropped 102 pounds in the past two years -- without exercising or modifying her diet.
Shannon, a mother of four girls, tells TMZ she weighed 365 pounds when she began taping the Toddlers & Tiaras spinoff in January 2011. She has since slimmed down to 263 pounds.
"I haven't done any surgeries. No diet pills. Never went to the gym," says Shannon, who buys her food in bulk with coupons. "But with the show I've been more active. They have my running around and going different places. I guess it's paying off."
The family's health has often been in question, as cameras capture 7-year-old Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson drinking go-go juice (a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew) and eating "sketti," pasta served with a generous helping of microwaved ketchup and butter.
Shannon, who describes herself as "beautimos," defended the young beauty queen's diet during a February 2012 appearance on Good Morning America. "She's not skinny but, whether skinny or fat, I am still going to love my children regardless," she said. "I could care less if they get up to 1,000 pounds; I am still going to love them."
