Mama June Shares Weight Loss Success

June Shannon told Page Six that she was initially against drugs like Mounjaro and Ozempic because she had a gastric sleeve. Her daughters, Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, joined her for the discussion with the publication.

Turning to her daughters, Mama June said, “But now, I’m in week nine and you can ask the girls — I am so super strict.”

In addition to using Mounjaro to help her drop the pounds, Mama June revealed that she’s sticking to a high-protein diet. She has also been hitting the gym “three or four times a week.” She shared that she’d lost about 30 pounds in the span of eight and a half weeks.

The rapid weight loss has been amazing for fans to see, but not everyone is thrilled about her using Mounjaro to make it happen. Pumpkin piped up during the conversation, expressing that the quick weight loss made her nervous.

Pumpkin Isn’t Confident June Will Change

“I just feel like every other time mom has lost weight so quickly, she’s gained it back, plus more each time. You know?” she shared. Then Pumpkin continued, “She didn’t eat right, she didn’t go to the gym. She just was like, ‘f*** it, I’ll get another surgery.’”

While that is true, many people think that this time might be different for Mama June. She has been more transparent about her journey this time around.

“I literally shared that experience with TikTok and I told people like, ‘I gained a pound and I was so mad at myself,’ because I work hard in the gym, eating only protein. I don’t really like bread, carbs and all that, so I’m okay with not even eating that,” Mama June said.

“I’m trying to get the 80 grams and 100 grams of protein, but when I did that last week, I gained a pound. So, now I gotta go back down to like 40 or 50 grams of protein versus what they say: 100 grams. I can’t do it. I’m like, I put on weight,” she told Page Six.
