Honey Boo Boo mum June Shannon "shocked" by weight loss

By
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star June Shannon has admitted that she is "shocked" by her drastic weight loss.

Shannon claimed earlier in the year that she lost over 100lbs by becoming more active, rather than with the aid of surgery or diet pills.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, the reality star quipped that excess weight has practically been "falling off" in recent months.

"When I got on the scale, I was very, very shocked. I used to weigh close to 400lbs," Shannon recalled.

She went on to say: "Do I feel better? Yes, in a way I [do]. I'm more happy with myself. I try to tell people, be happy with you [no] matter what people say."

Shannon also joked that she has been surprised by how much attention she has received from men since slimming down.
