It’s a rare occasion the Honey Boo Boo and family are in the media for something positive.
On a regular basis, they clog the interwebs with cringe worthy stories.
You know, like the time Pumpkin used the N-word on Facebook.
However, we are happy to report some good news from Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) and family. The child reality star has lost eight pounds!!
Normally, we wouldn’t have much to say about a child’s weight. But doctors consider Honey Boo Boo to be morbidly obese. Of course, that could lead to a lifetime of problems, so her weight loss is great news!
June Shannon aka Mama June made the announcement on Instagram: "Cause everyone wants to know how alana [is] doing she has lost almost 8 pds from 125.5 to 118 so Far in a [month] im so proud of her.”
Mama June shared that her 9-year-old daughter is approaching her weight loss in a healthy way.
On her Instagram post she wrote, “Just by eating smaller portions and walking and with the encouraging support even 3000 miles away from our personal trainer @natashafett.”
It can’t all be positive with Mama June though. She ripped the show The Doctors for having no impact on her daughters weight loss.
”I want the truth out there I'm sorry but in the [month] the show 'THE DOCTORS' was in our lives she lost nothing,” Shannon stated. “They wanted her to fail I feel from the beginning.”
She added, “[T]hey air the rest of the show tomorrow we wasn't on a 10 wk program like they want y'all to believe they flew us back in almost a [month] after the first appearance and they separate this show that will air tomorrow but in real life it was filmed back on April so I know they r going to make it looks like we don't care but we do.”
Mama June was booed when she walked onto the stage, appearing to have little concern about the family’s lifestyle and eating habits. Indeed, The Doctors slammed June Shannon for her daughter's weight.
But her the family's weight loss might tell a different story.
Honey Boo Boo’s mom claimed that she has lost 45 pounds, while Pumpkin has lost 26 pounds. Both report this weight loss occurred in a little over month.
"All cause the awesome support of one person that came into our lives @natashafett," June wrote. "Believe us or not but she is awesome supportive encouraged us when we felt like we couldn't or didn't what to do it she was always a call or text away encouraging telling us we r doing awesome.”
“[T]his is what has helped us not just the support of us as a family unit but the support from someone who genuinely cares about us successful getting healthier and changing your minds and this is truth my side of things,” she continued.
June wrote that she was “proud of the changes” they have made.
"It's a mind over matter," she wrote. "Yes im not going to lie it was hard at first but with the right support team in your corner and I want to thank u @GRMediaFirm for introducing natasha into our lives she has really made a HUGE difference in us and we thank u from the bottom of our hearts.”
I just wrote this article while crushing a whole frozen pizza because I’m in a bad mood, and I eat my feelings. So you go on with yo’ bad selves, Honey Boo Boo and family!!!
I’ll eat the extra slice for you.
