Mama June shows off dramatic weight loss in 'Baywatch' swimsuit shoot

In July 2015, she staged a Baywatch-inspired shoot in Panama City, Florida, after reportedly dropping 60 pounds.

However, it wasn't an easy journey for June as she was overcome with heartache and pain in the midst of weight loss surgical procedures. To celebrate her new look, complete with boob job, veneers on her teeth, a "neck job" and surgeries to remover her excess skin, the Mama June: From Not to Hot star donned a red swimsuit and channeled her inner lifeguard.

Mama June to the rescue! I'd tell people who are struggling with weight, just take it one day at a time. "I wanted to show him, like, I am actually worth it".

The mum to Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 11, also worked with a nutritionist and personal trainer to get in shape for her ex Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson's wedding.

"Mama June: from Not To Hot" focused on her fitness journey towards her goal.

"I've worked my ass off, working out, getting healthy", June has said.

"Now I feel like becoming the person on the outside that I always felt like on the inside".

Now the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star is showing off her new summer body with a red-hot pop culture inspiration. But she's dropped a lot of weight since then. "I'm happy where I'm at". "You have to exercise and you have to maintain [this lifestyle]".
