June “Mama June” Shannon, who went from 460 pounds to a size 4 just two years ago, says she didn’t like herself so skinny.
“I’ve gained 25 pounds, I told people that in the first season I felt like, even going through it, I felt like I was too small,” the 38-year-old star recently told Page Six. “Now that I’m 185, 190 due depending on what time of the month is, I feel confident.”
Mama June’s dramatic transformation in 2016, with the help of gastric sleeve and several skin-removal surgeries, was captured for her reality TV show “Mama June: From Not to Hot.”
“I know I don’t want to go over 200 pounds, that’s been my goal from the very beginning when I had surgery two years ago,” the mother of four explained. “And I feel good right now. If I lose more weight, that’s fine. I don’t want to be super skinny.”
Mama June, who was accompanied by her daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, also said her vision has been failing her.
“It’s been a struggle. Emotionally and physically,” she said. “Kind of going through my vision going and coming. It’s been tough.”
“Mama June: From Not to Hot” Season 2 premieres June 15.
