Honey Boo Boo's Mama June 'Very, Very Shocked' By Her Weight Loss

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star Mama June has dropped some pounds in the last few months – something that has floored her.

The 34-year-old reality TV star spoke with Access Hollywood just days before the new season of her hit TLC series premiere about her recent weight loss.

Mama June explained that she hasn’t drastically changed her diet, but credits “being more active with the show” for shedding the weight.

“I don’t really get on the scale, I don’t pay attention to how much I weigh,” the “How to Honey Boo Boo” author (available on July 16) told Access.

One noticeable change has been her wardrobe. June said her favorite pants are now, “falling off of me.”

“When I got on the scale, I was very, very shocked!” she said of her new weight, which she did not reveal. “I used to weigh close to 400 pounds.”

“Do I feel better? Yes, in a way I [do]. I’m more happy with myself,” she continued. “I try to tell people, be happy with you [no] matter what people say.”

In fact, according to Mama June, big is in this season.

“Lately, you see a lot of men who like thick girls,” she said with a smile.
