Her daughter Pumpkin told Entertainment Weekly, “She had a gastric sleeve back in May of 2015, and then she slowly started losing weight, and the reason she got the gastric sleeve was because she was at a plateau — she couldn’t lose any weight. And then it came to a point where [the trainer] had to step in because she got to another plateau with the gastric sleeve and wasn’t losing any more weight.”
And now she’s doing whatever it takes to keep the weight off while also living a healthier lifestyle. As most of us know, it’s very easy to gain the weight you worked so hard to get rid of. And for Mama June, it’s no different. That’s why she’s not only hitting the gym a few times a week, but she’s also watching what she eats. In other words, more fruits and vegetables and less Sketti.
