"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is possibly the biggest show to come out of TLC's production studios in a long time.
Stemming from the hit "Toddlers and Tiaras," the show followed contestant Honey Boo and her family through the child beauty pageant life, as well as life in the south.
The show was met with a ton of criticism, mainly accusing the family of "dumbing down" the image of Americans globally. But that didn't mean people stopped watching.
The matriarch of the family, Mama June, often faced the most criticism for how she was raising her children. But unfortunately, she also got a lot of rude comments about her weight.
For the most part, Mama June didn't let peoples' opinions affect her. But then she found out her husband was cheating on her, and Mama June decided it was time to make a change.
The reality star began a regiment of diet and exercise, but it got too extreme when she ended up collapsing at her home. Doctors believe it was due to her diet which led to her 90lb weight-loss.
But once she was released, Mama June made sure to do it the healthy way.
"Honestly, when I first started losing weight, it was just being more active, being busy with the show and doing more things with Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," she said. "I met with this trainer through my manager… 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."
But all of her hard work paid off! The reality star dropped 7 pant sizes, about 150lbs!
Here's her before picture:
And here she is now!
"I went from like a [size] 28 to a 16 — and these pants are a little too big!" gushed the TLC star.
It's a lot of work, but her perseverance definitely paid off. You go, Mama June!
