mama june weigiht loss honey boo boo 'Honey Boo Boo': Mama June's 100 pound weight lossTLC star Mama June Shannon has apparently been shedding the pounds while filming her reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” She tells TMZ that she has dropped more than 100 pounds in the last two years.

The mom of children’s pageant competitor Honey Boo Boo says she weighed 365 pounds when she first started filming the show in January 2011, but now has slimmed down to 263 pounds. She credits her active production schedule.

“No diet pills … never went to the gym. But with the show I’ve been more active,” says Shannon.

It certainly isn’t her diet. She is shown on the show making things like ketchup-butter sauce to go with “sketti” for the family.
