Honey Boo Boo and Mama June are weight loss winners. The stars of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” revealed their slim-down success on social media, reported HNGN on May 22.
“Cause everyone wants to know how Alana doing. She has lost almost 8 pds from 125.5 to 118 so Far in a [month] im so proud of her,” posted June Shannon proudly about Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana.
And the nine-year-old isn’t the only weight loss winner in the family, added June. The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” matriarch revealed that she lost 45 pounds herself, while her daughter Pumpkin lost 26 pounds after the family got help from a celebrity personal trainer, Natasha Fett.
So exactly what did they do? Mama June explained that they cut their portion sizes when it came to their diet. In addition, they supported each other on a walking program. June also thanked Natasha for her guidance and encouragement.
“Believe us or not but [Fett] is awesome supportive encouraged us when we felt like we couldn’t or didn’t [want] to do it she was always a call or text away encouraging telling us we r doing awesome and this is what has helped us not just the support of us as a family unit but the support from someone who genuinely cares about us successful getting healthier and changing your minds.”
The weight loss success comes at a time when Mama June and Honey Boo Boo are back in the news despite the cancellation of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” reported Entertainment Tonight on May 22.
Showing off her newly slim body, June explained that she is upset that her family’s show was cancelled. In addition to earning money for reality TV shows, the publicity increases the opportunity to earn money for endorsements ranging from weight loss plans to bottled water.
But “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was cancelled after June appeared with a convicted child molester in public. Now, with TLC not yet cancelling “19 Kids And Counting” despite molestation reports about the oldest son, Josh Duggar, Mama June is making it clear that she is still upset.
“I feel cheated still,” said June. “I was honest with [TLC]. I told them about everything from the get go. They knew the story. They sealed Anna’s records because she was under 18.”
Will Mama June and Honey Boo Boo be given the chance to show off their weight loss success on a new reality TV show? TLC has not yet confirmed or denied such reports. However, they did recently appear on “The Doctors” to discuss their weight loss battles.
