'Honey Boo Boo': Mama June's 100-pound weight loss
By Andrea Reiher
TLC star Mama June Shannon has apparently been shedding the pounds while filming her reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." She tells TMZ that she has dropped more than 100 pounds in the last two years.
The mom of children's pageant competitor Honey Boo Boo says she weighed 365 pounds when she first started filming the show in January 2011, but now has slimmed down to 263 pounds. She credits her active production schedule.
"No diet pills ... never went to the gym. But with the show I've been more active," says Shannon.
It certainly isn't her diet. She is shown on the show making things like ketchup-butter sauce and tweets pictures of things like Oreo cookies, potato chips and some kind of yellow batter that she calls her "after nap pre diner snack."
