Honey Boo Boo and "Mama June" Shannon have peeled off the pounds since embracing healthy new choices, the family matriarch says.
During an intervention on “The Doctors,” earlier this year, physician Travis Stork criticized Mama June for enabling the weight gain of 9-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
Happily, there is a positive update to report.
"Oh k cause everyone wants to know how alana doing she has lost almost 8 pds from 125.5 to 118 so Far in a mth im so proud of her... just by eating smaller portions and walking and with the encouraging support even 3000 miles away from our personal trainer @natashafett," Mama June posted recently.
She indicated that "The Doctors" intervention felt like an ambush: "They wanted her to fail."
But the whole family is now paring down. She said she's lost 45 pounds and daughter Lauryn (known as Pumpkin) has shed 26.
"I'm proud of the changes Alana, Pumpkin and myself have made and continue to make," Mama June said.
