Mama June: From Not to Hot — and still hot!
Mama June Shannon vowed to “never going back” to being overweight and she appears to have kept her word. The reality star, 38, was spotted in Atlanta, Georgia, on Monday, showing off her trim figure seven months after revealing she dropped 300 lbs. in a drastic body transformation.
For her outing, Shannon was all smiles, dressed in athletic wear with a gray long-sleeve shirt and patterned form-fitting leggings.
Shannon appears to be maintaining her weight — something she previously told PEOPLE she planned on doing with better food decisions, exercise and portion control after going from 460 lbs. to a size 4 following gastric sleeve surgery in 2015.
“I can promise you I’m never going back to that size. I’m happy where I’m at,” she said.
Then in February, viewers watched Shannon’s stunning transformation on WE tv’s Mama June: From Not to Hot as the mother of four spent upwards of $75,000 to have gastric sleeve surgery, breast augmentation and 9 lbs. of skin removal surgery on her “turkey neck,” “bat wings” and stomach.
“It’s kind of crazy. A lot of people don’t recognize who I am until I talk,” Shannon told PEOPLE Now in April. “It’s kind of like I’m in my own disguise. Normally when I walk through the streets, everybody notices me, and now it’s like nobody [does].”
Instead, she’s been flaunting her body with her new wardrobe.
Shannon has shown off her new size 4 figure multiple times, stepping into a red-hot revenge dress, which served as motivation for her to attend ex Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson’s wedding, and even sporting a fitted one-piece red bathing suit for a Baywatch-inspired photo shoot.
“I don’t consider a tummy tuck or face skin removal ‘plastic surgery.’ I believe it’s something that makes you feel better than you did with the skin hanging,” she previously told PEOPLE. “It’s not like I’m Miss Plastic.”
