Being June Shannon must be tough. Not only does she face daily ridicule in the press, and countless internet memes, but the mother of Honey Boo Boo also says that being on reality TV is a workout! She recently lost 100 lbs without changing a thing!
June Shannon first graced us with her presence after Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premiered on TLC. After the Toddler & Tiaras star managed to get her own show, fans and haters both tuned in. June, the mother of Honey Boo Boo, has always been large and in charge. Now, however, June is packing a little less weight around-to the tune of 100 lbs!
June says that she hasn’t done anything crazy to lose the weight. No crazy diet pills, workout regimens, or going under the knife. “I haven’t done any surgeries … no diet pills … never went to the gym.” While going to the gym probably wouldn’t hurt, June says that filming keeps her busy enough. “But with the show I’ve been more active. They have me running around and going different places … I guess it’s paying off.”
The Thompson family is frequently shown eating sketti,(A dish with noodles, ketchup and butter) cheese puffs and other junk food, but Mama says she’s not concerned about the weight of her or her children-especially Honey Boo Boo. In an interview last year, she said, “She’s not skinny but, whether skinny or fat, I am still going to love my children regardless. I could care less if they get up to 1,000 pounds; I am still going to love them.”
While we have respect for Mama’s weight loss, her lack of concern over her children’s weight is frightening. Childhood obesity is an epidemic. Do you think that Mama should put her family on a diet? Let us know in the comments!
