It’s safe to say Mama June is having a pretty good week. Her WEtv show, “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” just got picked up for a second season, her 38th birthday is on Thursday, and people are paying attention to the stunning photo she shared last Thursday of herself in Little Black Dress.
Fans have been following June Shannon’s weight loss for years, ever since her first gastric sleeve procedure in 2015. Over the next two years she lost 300 pounds, and seems to have kept it off since debuting her size-four body in March.
As you may remember, Mama June went through several surgeries to start losing weight and then remove extra skin from her subsequent weight loss. She even went through a scary hospitalization due to complications from a surgery.
Now, June seems to be in a better place physically, and is proudly showing off her transformation. She previously told People she was determined to keep the weight off. “I can promise you I’m never going back to that size,” she said. “I’m happy where I’m at.”
Fans can continue to follow along with Mama June’s attempts to live a healthy lifestyle and family drama next year. WEtv hasn’t announced an official date for the second season, but it is slated for early 2018.
In a statement, WEtv President Marc Juris said that “After witnessing her epic transformation, it was absolutely clear that the story has just begun, and we are pleased to be continuing together on this journey.”
