Honey Boo Boo's mum drops 50kg

Child pageant star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson’s mum June Shannon has slimmed down, losing 46kg without a diet or exercise!

So what’s the secret to her weight loss success? June says that since her daughter’s TV show Here comes Honey Boo Boo aired she has been so busy the weight has just fallen off.

"I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym," June told TMZ. "But with the show I've been more active."

June, who is referred to as mama June on the show, said when taping first started in 2011 she weighed 165kg. She has revealed she now weighs 119kg thanks to her new busy schedule.

“They have me running around and going different places ... I guess it's paying off," she said.

June has been quizzed about her family’s usually unhealthy lifestyle before, explaining to American talk show host Dr Drew how she feels about being accused of causing her daughters to be obese.

“The childhood obesity, you know, I'm not saying that Alana's not a little chunky herself, but I love Alana. I love all my kids, ya know what I mean? Not everyone fits in a size zero," she said on the show in December 2012.
