Queen June Drops 100 lbs

You better redneckognize Mama June's weight loss

Th Here Comes Honey Boo Boo atriarch says she has shed more than 100 lbs. – without dieting or ever setting foot in a gym, TMZ reports

"I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym," June says. "But with the show I've been more active."

Mama June – whose real name is June Shannon – says that when she first started taping the TLC reality show in January 2011, she weighed 365 lbs. But now she says she weighs 263 lbs. – a 102-lb. weight loss

"They have me running around and going different places ... I guess it's paying off," she says.

Recently, Mama June revealed that she set up a trust fund or her daughter, Alanna "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson – who makes anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 an episode – and for her other daughters, and it won't be available to them until they each turn 21.


Don't really mind that she lost weight because I think she's great either way.  But I need more Honey Boo Boo gifs, so let's go.

One time I did Weight Watchers and I lost 60lbs in about 8 months (which, honestly wasn't really noticeable, or at least I didn't notice and I was still wearing the same clothes as always) but then I had to have some major surgery and I couldn't work out, had to increase calories, etc. I did think Weight Watchers was pretty easy, but I felt like they gave me *way* too many points. Like I was leaving 10-15 points unused every day, never using any of the activity or flex points. Maybe that's why it worked, IDK. I'm thinking about rejoining, but they changed the plan so I'm wondering how this new 360 plan compares to the old Points Plus/Flex Points plans.

I don't think I have PCOS, everything as far as my cycle and stuff is pretty normal. But it was really frustrating to work out and really really watch what I eat and see barely anything happen. I'd think I wasn't working out hard enough, and yet other people would say things like they just took walks or started with a few minutes of activity and lost weight and I'd be like "I'm eating 1000 calories a day and working out to the point of feeling like shit and I'm not losing half that." It became so exhausting to maintain.

http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf is a good guideline to follow if you want to try something else

you don't need to go insane counting calories and whatnot. just whole fat, healthy foods. grassfed meats, pasture butter, raw cheese, etc. no low fat processed stuff. strength training is more important than mindless cardio that can increase stress and inflammation in the body


this totally goes against anything i've ever heard but it's really helped me. it's worth a try

it's INSANELY frustrating bb, i feel you. maybe try a higher protein/lower carb diet, something along the same lines as atkins but without the frankenfood bars and shakes.. haha.

I'm doing it again now, but I've had to come clean as a food addict to a few people and I have to kind of treat myself like an alcoholic in that I take it day by day. The 360 thing is that they aren't just focusing on food, but how to create spaces and routines to help you be successful. Still doesn't address some one like me who basically has an all out addiction, but showing up for meetings and now posting my weekly weight loss/gain to facebook where my friends are commenting is keeping me a lil better on my toes.

As far as WW goes, they've changed it from a few years ago in that you actually have MORE points to eat, but they've also changed the value of most foods so that they skew a lil higher, especially carby foods. This doesn't count that they want you to eat fruit and/or veggies with every meal. I do leave a few points sometimes, like I left over 2 yesterday, but I do try to eat them all.

I really think, just from what is here, that your bigger issue might be the "less is more" thing. You have to eat to loose. Seems counter productive, but it is the truth. It's more of what you eat than quantity. IE, you can eat a whole head of lettuce with dressing or a candy bar. Size wise, the candy bar is less food, but the lettuce is more filling and better for you.

Sorry if I am coming off as preachy or something. I've just been struggling with this for most of my life and I know exactly what I need to do to loose weight. I also know that what works for me doesn't always work for everyone, but I still want to share if it might help one person with what they are going through. Good luck to you though. I don't think most people realize what it's like to be fat, not wanting to be fat, but struggling with an actual addiction that you can't ever stop because humans need to eat in order to just live. (not saying you have an addiction)
