Mama June Shannon became a household name as the overweight mom of former beauty pageant star, Alanna "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson. After their run on "Toddlers and Tiaras," the Georgia family starred in their own spinoff, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

While on the former TLC hit, Mama June became famous for some pretty unhealthy habits. The show was canceled back in 2014 after an unrelated scandal surfaced.For a while, it looked like June and her reality star daughters were done filming forever until June decided to take back her life and lose a shocking amount of weight.

A history

According to People, June Shannon weighed in at 460-pounds at her highest weight. With no reality show and no man, Mama June decided she wanted to get revenge on her ex Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson. June's weight loss journey initially started out as a way of getting back at Sugar Bear. June admitted that she wanted to show him that she could do anything she wanted if she just put her mind to it.

Mama June began her weight loss journey all the way back in July 2015. She hired a trainer and started working out. June also started learning how to make healthier meals for herself and her family. This was a huge shock to those who watched her serve "Sketti" to her family, a meal that literally consisted of spaghetti noodles, butter, and ketchup.

'From Not to Hot'

As Mama June started shrinking, her fan base and pretty much everyone else started to take notice. A buzz started to build around the much-smaller reality star and a new show was born. WEtv decided to pick up Mama June's weight loss story on "Mama June: From Not To Hot" which debuted in February 2017.

Just like "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," "From Not To Hot" chronicled the lives of June Shannon, her daughters and her relationship with Sugar Bear.

By this time, June's ex-had moved on to another woman, making June's revenge an even bigger deal. She revealed that her ultimate goal during the filming of the WEtv series that she wanted to fit into a sizzling hot red dress to the wedding.

Even though "Mama June: From Not To Hot" debuted in February, WEtv didn't air June's amazing weight loss transformation until March 31.

The first glimpse at a much slimmer June Shannon was shocking. She was literally unrecognizable.

One year later

It's been a full year since June Shannon's transformation and it's safe to say that she's still putting the work in. "From Not To Hot" is in the middle of Season 2 and will return with more new episodes in June.

June recently shared a new photo of herself to promote the WEtv show. In it, she looks even slimmer than before. At this point, the reality star claims to have lost more than 300-pounds since the beginning of her weight loss journey. What started out as revenge on Sugar Bear has turned into so much more. June admits that she's changed the reason for getting slim and healthy over the last few years.

Now, rather than getting revenge on her ex, she says that she's staying in shape for herself.

While Mama June has said she'd rather not have more plastic surgery, she did make one thing clear,"I will never go back to what I look like… I will do whatever it takes."
