“It’s a daily struggle. I’ve had the gastric sleeve. I’ve had the skin removal surgery. But who would think, ‘Oh, that’s just a fix,’ you know what I’m saying?” she explained. “Trust me, it’s work. You have to put the work into it because if you don’t, there’s no sense in spending the money and having the stuff done.”

One of the huge benefits Mama June said she received from this journey is that she no longer experiences back pain. She previously opened up about wanting to undergo this experience because her ex Sugar Bear was getting married to Jennifer Lamb — and she wanted to look good at their wedding.

When it comes to her own dating life, she previously told In Touch that she has “been doing a little bit dating. I do not want any more kids in the future, I already have four and that is enough. I would like to get married maybe one day with the right one.”
