One proud Mama June. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch “Mama” June Shannon praised her daughter Alana‘s weight loss via Instagram on Wednesday, May 20, saying she was “so proud” of the little pageant princess (aka Honey Boo Boo) for her recent transformation.
“Cause everyone wants to know how alana [is] doing,” the former TLC star, 35, wrote, “she has lost almost 8 pds from 125.5 to 118 so Far in a [month] im so proud of her.”
Shannon shared that Honey Boo Boo, 9, is achieving her weight loss in a healthy way. “Just by eating smaller portions and walking and with the encouraging support even 3000 miles away from our personal trainer @natashafett,” she continued, while ripping the show, The Doctors, for having no impact on her daughter’s 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 sniped. “They wanted her to fail I feel from the beginning they 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.”
Indeed, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo mom was booed when she walked out onto the stage and appeared to be doing very little to help her daughter lead a healthier lifestyle. By contrast, Mama June credited and extolled her family’s trainer Natasha Fett for drastically changing their lifestyles.
Shannon claimed that she’s lost 45 pounds while another daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has dropped 26 pounds in a little over a 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 and this 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.”
Overall, Shannon wrote that she was “proud of the changes” their family has made for themselves. “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.”
