"I do worry about their health, but I'm going to say, 'You got to eat salads all the time.' I've seen Pumpkin and Alana lose and gain weight, but I don't want them to end up like I did at 460 lbs. I'm not saying I'm the most flawless person because trust me I do eat", she added.

Whether you followed the series or not, Honey Boo Boo and matriarch "Mama" June Shannon gained quite a pop culture status after appearing on reality show sensation 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'.

"Great! I've been wondering why she did all of this for herself but hasn't helped her children!"

Despite all the excess baggage she's carrying in other areas of her life, Mama June is literally half the woman she used to be in terms of her weight. "I mean, I'm able to get around more, I'm able to do more and stuff like that, so for me, it's got its advantages and its disadvantages". She reportedly weighed 460 pounds but has completely turned her life around. "They took nine pounds, almost, off my stomach as skin", she said, letting AJ feel her tight tummy after her 300-lb. weight loss.

Mama June admitted that she does miss snacking from time to time, but the benefits of healthy eating are worth it. "So it's more like grapes, cheese - at nights, chicken - and maybe sometimes also rice and then a bean, or a potato or something".

She is crediting better food choices and smaller portions with keeping her weight down. The skin removal surgery left her bandaged and bruised, but overall, she's pleased with the results.
