I lost 100lbs without dieting or hitting the gym: Honey Boo Boo's Mama June claims weight loss is down to hectic TV schedule
Honey Boo Boo's Mama June has revealed that she's lost more than 100lbs in the past two years without
dieting or hitting the gym.
The larger-than-life reality TV star said that she tipped the scales at 365lbs back in January 2011 and now she weighs a lighter 263lbs.
Revealing her weight-loss secrets the 33-year-old, mother-of-four, told TMZ: 'With the show I've been more active. They have me running around and going different places... I guess it's paying off.'

'I haven't done any surgeries... no
diet pills... never went to the gym,' she insisted.
Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, certainly hasn't changed her eating habits.
On her show she is regularly seen tucking into
giant plates of food, with her favorite family dish being Sketti - a saucy combination of spaghetti, ketchup and butter.
A recent episode also showed how her Thanksgiving menu featured 15 cans of vegetables, 12 cans of cranberry sauce and a large turkey coated with a gallon of butter.

'Just like all my other recipes, butter and sugar makes everything taste better,' she exclaimed as she prepared the gut-busting feast.
However recently she has been trying to shake up her appearance.
While she had greying curls pulled back off her face in previous episodes, she appeared on screen last month with a new shoulder-length blonde hairdo.
She also sported a tanned complexion, completing the transformation.
Festive spirit: Ms Shannon and her brood return to screens this Sunday in a Christmas special
One imagines that the makeover was inspired by the family's newfound fame - as Ms Shannon is photographed wherever she goes.
She returns to screens on Sunday at 8pm with another holiday special titled A Very Boo Christmas.
During the installment the penny-pinching matriarch takes her family to the flea market to find Christmas deals and also teaches them the joy of re-gifting.
