It's been a little over a year since Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her mother Mama June took the world by storm with their TLC spin-off Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — and what a difference a year makes! The reality TV matriarch dropped a total of 115 pounds since the show premiered in August 2012, going from a size 26 to an 18. And not only that, Mama June got herself a whole new look complete with blonde highlights and an updated wardrobe!

Check out the side-by-side pictures below of Mama June before on September 18, 2012 (at left) and after on September 9, 2013 (at right). Pretty impressive, right?

"I feel really good." Mama June said in an interview with KTLA a few months ago. “At my heaviest it was like 400 pounds, but now I’m like 285.”

While Mama June doesn't have any plans to shed more weight right now, she welcomes whatever changes the future may hold.

“If I lose more weight, that’s fine. If I don’t, that’s fine also," she continued. "I’m happy with myself. If you don’t like me, you don’t like me, and you don’t have to look at me.”

Couldn't have said it better ourselves!

Fortunately, we'll be seeing a lot more of Mama June and her new physique after the new year when Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returns to TLC on January 16 for Season 3. Check out the epic sneak peek clip here.
