Mama June Reveals Exactly How Much She Weighs After Transformation
Now that we’ve seen how different Mama June looks after her From Not to Hot makeover, the WE tv star is opening up about her life after the transformation.
More specifically, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo alum is revealing how much she weighs after going from over 400 pounds to a size 4 — and how she’s keeping the weight off.
This week, the matriarch opens up to ETOnline.com, detailing her life as a much smaller woman.
But where exactly does that leave her when it comes to the scale?
As she tells it, almost 300 pounds less than her 460-pound starting weight.
“I’m in the 160s,” the 37-year-old spills. “I’m probably four or five pounds off from being there.”
Pretty impressive — and it doesn’t seem like she’s in a rush to go much smaller.
“I'm happy that I went through with it and got what I wanted. I've been wanting it a long time,” the mother of four reasons.
She continues, "I'm always doing stuff for everybody else and never myself, so this is pretty much myself.”
Though her WE tv show continuously pegged her as a size 4, the Southern gal is blissfully unaware of what the actual number is these days.
“These are a size 5 and they're too big,” she says of her jeans, before adding, “In a dress size, a size 4, [but] I don't honestly know. I haven't been shopping at all.”
Whatever the specific size, it’s a very different June than we once knew — and that didn’t come cheap.
She says she spent “well over $50K” on her extensive set of surgeries, including a gastric sleeve, breast augmentation, skin removal, and pricey veneers.
On the other hand, People broke down the specific procedures and estimates the cost is closer to $75K!
A hefty sum for the reality star to cover, so of course she’s not planning to gain any weight back. But how?
“I will do whatever it takes,” she states. “You have to exercise, you have to maintain … I will never go back to what I looked like.”
Part of that is with a very different daily diet than her days of “sketti” yore.
The newly-thin star tells People she’s on a low-carb, low-sugar diet — with the occasional indulgence.
“Mexican, barbecue and Little Debbie jelly-filled pies,” she admits. “They are heaven in a box.”
Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on WE tv.
