So much for showing off her revenge body!
Mama June’s recent transformation has been nothing short of incredible — but that doesn’t mean she didn’t hit a few bumps along the way!
In a new clip of her series Mama June: From Not to Hot — obtained exclusively by In Touch — the 37-year-old struggles after learning that her weight loss won’t be what she expected for her ex-husband Sugar Bear’s wedding; she was planning on having her skin removal surgery before the big day, but it was ultimately canceled before the wedding because she didn’t lose enough weight in time.

“The dreams of me completely transforming my body before Sugar’s wedding and the photoshoot are gone,” she laments in the clip. “I f--ked up big time.”
Fortunately, she has her daughters Lauryn (aka Pumpkin), 20, and Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo), 11, there to cheer her up!
“We know how bad that Mama has wanted the skin removal surgery, and even though she’s being a total bitch to us, there’s no way that I’m gonna let her give up this easy,” Pumpkin says.
Since going under the knife for a gastric sleeve and dropping more than 200 pounds, Mama June has pledged that she’ll never go back to the way she was.

“I just decided it was time for a change, to be more healthy, and to do something for myself because I do so much for everybody else,” she explained. “At first, people were saying’ You’re losing weight, you look great,’ and I just ran with it.”
She also said that by sharing her journey, she hopes she inspires others.
“I hope that somebody will realize that’s going through the same weight loss struggles that they’re not alone and realize it’s not all peaches and cream,” she gushed. “I hope one person gets something out of it, that they realize the struggles are real. I’d tell people who are struggling with weight, just take it one day at a time. You can’t just give up because it seems like the easy way to go. Trust me, I wanted to give up several times through this journey.”
