Mama June Shows Off Her Remarkable Transformation After Shedding Nearly 300 Pounds
Her diet has undergone a complete overhaul.
Reality TV matriarch Mama June showed off her stunning transformation as she visited Inside Edition in New York City.
She said that she has lost nearly 300 pounds after the weight loss surgeries. She said that she "didn't believe it" when she looked at the scale and saw her new weight.
Mama June had gastric sleeve surgery and then two more major procedures, including a breast lift and removal of many pounds of excess skin.
"The only [surgery] I was scared to get was the gastric sleeve," she said. "The other ones I was excited to get."
She added: "Most people in my own town don't even recognize me."
Fans have followed Honey Boo Boo's mom on the WE tv series From Not To Hot, which has its finale Friday night.
And to keep the weight off, Mama June will have to watch what she eats, and make drastic changes in her diet. She can only eat a few ounces at a time.
She said her cravings are still there and recently told photographers that she's found herself craving fried chicken.
"You want to eat, eat, eat, and eat, but you just can't do that," she told Inside Edition, adding she will feel sick or "throw up" if she eats too much.
Studies have shown that nearly 50 percent of people who undergo weight loss surgery gain a significant amount of the weight back within the first five years.
She said she is not afraid that she will gain the weight back, telling Inside Edition, "I have no inkling to do it. I will never gain that weight back, I promise you."
