Mama June Shannon heard your criticisms about her daughters being overweight like she once was. The 37-year-old reality TV star once tipped the scales at a whopping 460 pounds. But she shed the excess weight after paying $75,000 on weight loss surgery.

“I do worry about their health, but I’m not going to say, ‘You got to eat salads all the time,'” says Mama June of daughters Lauryn “Pumkn” Shannon, 17, and Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo.

June also has grown daughters Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon, 20, and Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, 22.

June documented her weight loss journey on her new reality TV show From Not To Hot on WEtv, where she underwent gastric sleeve surgery, breast augmentation, and 9 lbs of skin removal surgery.

She told PEOPLE magazine she wants her children to learn from her mistakes but she doesn’t want to limit them to calorie counting and eating like birds.

“I don’t want them to go through what I went through in school or with surgery,” she says. “I’ve seen them lose and gain weight, but I don’t want them to end up like I did at 460 lbs. Who would want that?”

She said she would support her daughters emotionally if they did decide to go under the knife like she did.

“If they do have to have that done, they’ve got to realize it’s not just a surgery thing, you have to change body, your frame of mind, what you eat. Everything.”

  • Tea??

    You’re worried about their weight but were you worried when you brought that man that molested your daughter BACK into your life and around your kids. ?.what are you going to do to help them not get that big June?

  • Guess Who

    She looks like she smells like cat piss, stagnant swamp water and earwax.

    There is no way she is a size 4, but how are you gonna lose all that weight and still dressing like a slouch?

  • Valerie D. Henderson

    Cat piss!!!!!!! LMAO

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She probably still sees herself as a big girl…

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    And did Auntie report on the cutie that applied too and was accepted all the Ivy League colleges ?!?!?!!!!!

  • stav

    Yeah I guess it would take time to get used to being so much smaller.

    Coming from a former member of Team Chunk for kids, now is the time to integrate fruit ,veggies, and lots of activity into their day. Otherwise, they’re looking at painful periods or hormonal imbalance, more scrutiny, and a chronically sedentary lifestyle.

    Narcissistic in my Sandra Rose voice!

    Auntie trying to cross the blog over? Shole is alotta yt ppl posts today.

    She is already looking fat and her daughter is really overweight, the nerve to have a McDonald’s bag.

  • 2brefrank

    Well…good for her!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    No. Some other dude. It’s the reason her original show was cancelled. The dude went to prison for molesting her oldest daughter and when he got out she got back with him.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Mama June just doesn’t get it. You don’t have to eat salads all the time or count calories — just eat a balanced diet and limit your soda and sweets intake… The Mama will be back up to walrus size in six months to a year and the whole family will stay looking like the Klumps…

  • MistaO

    Y’all a mess…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Maybe all that hanging skin has her looking bigger???

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Exactly. The show had to babysit her every step of the way because after the surgery she wasn’t losing the weight at the rate that she should.

    What has American celebrity come to? Famous for being a slob and raising other slobs?! Really?! No thanks!

  • Disqus_year4016

    Honey boo boo got taller. Usually when u get taller u get thinner, guess that’s not the case. She still fat. All of them is fat.

  • Disqus_year4016

    Yeh, what do they do again besides looking like a whale?

  • Disqus_year4016

    If he was black they will b dragging him to the ground. He’ll be doing life behind bars.

  • MercifulLove

    Mama June looks like she needs counseling….

  • DroneRivers

    She needed to be concerned 100 lbs ago! That girl was overweight before she even hit the scene on that pageant show.

  • JanusMaximus

    Alana loves being fat and she has so much confidence(!) but she’s going to get diabetes if she doesn’t tone it down a bit

  • Missy

    But I like this family tho. They act the exact same way no matter who’s around, always themselves. & they always give me some good damn laughs too. Idc idc idc.??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That’s nice. Did you hear about the non-black teen who got accepted to Stanford just by typing “Black Lives Matter” 100 times on his application? Apparently getting into Ivy League schools is not as tough as it once was.

  • Allihave2say

    You live and you learn. When you know better, you do better.

  • Allihave2say

    Why so? You think she’s depressed?

  • Prettybrowneyes

    Congrats but that is not a size 4 …the media is a trip

  • MercifulLove

    I know theres just one pic on here, but she looked overwhelmed in the last few pics that I’ve seen of her. The new body, new diet, new workouts, new clothes, new attention may be slightly getting to her……

  • kase.

    no her ass isn’t walking with a mcdonalds bag.. i’m getting mcdonalds tomorrow. lol!!

  • Jussjess25

    Who?!?

  • NeverSurprised

    Not a 14. The camera adds about 10 lbs., so I think she’s around a 10. I’m a 2/4 so I know exactly what that looks like, and there’s no way in hell she’s a 4.

  • Malcom Flex

    Disgusting white trash azz pervert nasty bih. Train wreck watch her gain the weight back and Honey Doo Doo is a slob, that’s neglect to let a kid get sow sized.

  • Malcom Flex

    Mama Trash is high on pain pills they all are with all the plastic surgery and implant pain. Including the K klan, all high as hell thats why they look do drowsy.

  • Reina1718

  • GuestSTAR

    That lil girl is too fat, mom’s need to get a handle on that NOW, otherwise, she’ll be tipping the scales 250 in no time. Leave that fast food alone.

  • Tee Tee

  • MercifulLove

    maybe so

  • Ariesjerk

    Thats because she gained some bk. On her reality show the end she was really small

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    So mama June lost weight. Congrats, she’s looking better.. She’s carrying a bottle of water while her daughter that she’s “concerned” about being overweight is carrying a Mickey D’s bag. Oh, ok…

  • Allihave2say

    Mama June knows the pressure is on and people are watching and judging to see what happens next, does she regain the weight, do the kids get fit and so on. I hope she holds it together. She was a very young mother and she’s come a long way.

  • EMILY POST

    After Hollywood exploited the fat kid … ohh now She needs to lose weight…
