June “Mama” Shannon, the matriarch of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has lost over 100 pounds.
She started filming the reality show in 2011 at 365 pounds, and she now weighs 263 pounds. She admits, however, that she never worked out and never dieted to achieve the 102-pound weight loss.
Shannon told TMZ, "I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym, but with the show I've been more active."
She added, "They have me running around and going different places ... I guess it's paying off."
Shannon is seen on the wildly popular reality show making an unhealthy meal called “sketti,” which consists of spaghetti mixed with ketchup and butter, as well as snacking on unhealthy foods.
According to People, Shannon has set up a trust fund for her children, who make between $15,000 to $20,000 per episode. They won’t be able to access the money until they turn 21.
