In a matter of one short reality TV show season, Mama June went from over 400 pounds to close to 160. During the finale of “From Not to Hot,” Mama June revealed that she originally started the weight loss to make her ex-husband jealous.
“My goal when I first started this weight loss journey was to make Sugar Bear kind of jealous. But it’s no longer about revenge. Doing all the surgeries really took a toll on me—not just physically, but emotionally,” she said.
Mama June also shared that she hopes her journey will encourage her children to eat healthier and make better choices, “I do worry about their health, but I’m not going to say, ‘You got to eat salads all the time.”
