Slimmer, blonder and hitting the red carpet: Honey Boo Boo's Mama June shows off 100lb weight-loss at GLAAD Awards
” class=”blkBorder” />
Unhealthy lifestyle: The TV star said that she weighed 365lbs when she started filming her TLC series – here she is pictured in the first season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in early 2012
Last month, the mother-of-four revealed that she had lost more than 100lbs over the past
two years as a result of her hectic TV schedule.
The reality star from Georgia said that she tipped the scales at 365lbs before she started filming her TLC series and at the beginning of this year she weighed a lighter 263lbs.
Detailing her weight-loss secrets she told TMZ: 'With the show
I've been more active. They have me running around and going different places… I guess it's paying off.'
'I haven't done any surgeries… no
diet pills… never went to the gym,' she insisted.

Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, certainly hasn't changed her eating habits.
On her show she is regularly seen tucking into giant plates of food, with her favorite family dish being Sketti – a saucy combination of spaghetti, ketchup and butter.
A recent episode also showed how her Thanksgiving menu featured 15 cans of vegetables, 12 cans of cranberry sauce and a large turkey coated with a gallon of butter.

new shoulder-length blonde hairdo, which she still has today (right)
'Just like all my other recipes, butter and sugar makes everything taste better,' she exclaimed as she prepared the gut-busting feast.
However recently she has been trying to shake up her appearance.
While she had greying curls pulled
back off her face in previous episodes, she appeared on screen in January with a new shoulder-length blonde hairdo.
She complimented the sunny tones with a tanned complexion.

The makeover was most likely inspired by the family's new-found fame, as Ms Shannon is now photographed wherever she goes.
At this year's GLAAD event, TV stars Snooki and JWoww tweeted a picture of themselves with her.
They captioned their snaps with the words ‘YES. We love Mama June’ and ‘Honey boo boo b****es!!! #obsessed #loveher.’
