Mama June's 30-Pound Weight Loss With Drug Gets Daughter Concerned

The 'Mama June: From Not to Hot' star, who has been documenting her weight loss journey on her social media page, claims that she dropped 30 pounds in two months since taking tirzepatide.

AceShowbiz - Mama June a.k.a. June Shannon has always been open about her personal life as documented on her family reality series. Now, the reality TV star is getting candid about her latest weight loss journey after revealing her plan to start using semaglutide to help get her weight back under control.

Stopping by Page Six's studio with her daughters Jessica Shannon a.k.a. Chubbs, Lauryn Efird a.k.a. Pumpkin as well as Alana Thompson a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo, the mother of four revealed that she has dropped 30 pounds in the two months since she began taking tirzepatide.

June, who lost her eldest daughter Anna to cancer in December 2023, admitted, "I was against it because I had a gastric sleeve." She added, "But now, I'm in week nine and you can ask the girls - I am so super strict."

"I probably lost 30 pounds in like eight and a half weeks," the 44-year-old boasted, before noting that she also sticks to a protein packed diet and makes sure she's going to the gym "three or four times a week" to maintain her weight.

June's quick drop, however, has got her daughter Lauryn concerned. "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.

Unlike June's claims, the elder sister of Alana explained that she's worried because her mother often went for an instant way to lose weight instead of living a healthy lifestyle. "She didn't eat right, she didn't go to the gym. She just was like, 'f**k it, I'll get another surgery,' " she claimed.

June, meanwhile, insisted that this time is different. She said she has been transparent about monitoring her routines and eating habits. She has also been strict with herself, recalling an instance when she gained one pound.

"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," June said.

She continued, "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."

June previously underwent bariatric surgery in 2016 and reportedly lost more than 300 pounds. She additionally underwent cosmetic surgery, spending a reported $75,000 to further improve her appearance.

June and her daughters are currently starring on "Mama June: Family Crisis" which will return with a new season on June 14 on WEtv.
