"Just 11 months ago, I weighed 352 pounds and I never thought this weight loss would be possible," she continued. "It's been a long road through all these three surgeries, struggling with my emotional eating, these intense workouts, a dress I thought I would never be able to fit into, dealing with my ex's fiancée/soon-to-be Alana's stepmom, and all the while I'm trying to stay healthy and good for my kids."
Mama June did come a long way. After her ex Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson announced that he was getting married, the mom-of-four decided that she wanted to work on getting a revenge body so that she could show up to his wedding and look smoking hot — just to show him what he's missing.

She went under the knife three times — first for gastric sleeve surgery to help her with her weight loss goals. After that, she worked out with personal trainer Kenya Crooks to help her shed the pounds. After she hit her target weight of about 190 pounds, she underwent two more procedures which included a tummy tuck, a breast lift, and skin removal surgery.
