Now, she has shared what her “goal number” is and how much more weight she’ll have to lose to meet that goal.

Mama June Shares Her Weight Loss Goals

Prior to the premiere of the June 14 episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot, June Shannon opened up to Us Weekly about her use of weight-loss drugs to help her reach her goal weight. June shared that she is taking tirzepatide, better known by the brand name Mounjaro. In addition to taking the weight-loss drug, she has also made significant changes in her diet and exercise routine.

She shared that she has been focusing on a high-protein diet and has been hitting the gym three to four times each week. Mama June’s efforts have helped her lose between three and four pounds per week.

In the eight weeks since she started taking Mounjaro, she has lost 30 pounds. “I’m going [into] my ninth week this week and I’ve lost 30 pounds, and I really have kept myself strict,” she told the publication. However, she doesn’t plan to stop there.

The mother of four shared that she still has 72.6 pounds to lose before she meets her goal weight. This would put her between 170 and 180 pounds, which she says is the ideal weight for her.

“I don’t ever want to go down to 130 pounds, [which] I was when in season 1 [of From Not to Hot]. I went from a 24 to a size zero,” Mama June said.

Justin Stroud Is Worried About June’s Sobriety

June plans on continuing to use the weight-loss drug to help her reach her goal. She shared that she is not experiencing any of the typical side effects of the medication, so she is comfortable continuing to use it.

Much of her latest transformation has been dependent on her desire to change her lifestyle as well. Mama June shared that her daughters had been in and out of bakeries all week, but she has stayed strict about adhering to her diet. She has also opened herself up to trying new, healthier foods.

“I’ve tried new food like cottage cheese and stuff like that, and [have] been trying new foods to incorporate [into my diet] to get protein,” she said.

Although Mama June has been successful in changing her lifestyle to be healthier, her husband said that she is struggling behind the scenes. In March 2024, Justin Stroud revealed that June is actually having a hard time remaining sober. He said that a huge part of sobriety is being honest and he feels June is putting her sobriety at risk by lying.

Fans are likely to see more of this play out in the newest season of From Not To Hot. The next episode will air on Friday, June 21 at 9 p.m. on WEtv.
