Honey Boo Boo has lost nearly 8 lbs in the past month, dropping from 125.5 lbs to 118, her mother, June Shannon, revealed via Instagram.
Mama June credited Alana’s weight loss to “eating smaller portions and walking” as well as support from the family’s personal trainer, Natasha Fett.
The 35-year-old also said that she has lost 45 lbs and her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has lost 26 lbs. She went on to say that it all happened because Natasha Fett was “someone who genuinely cares about us … getting healthier and changing [our] minds”.

In February, 9-year-old Honey Boo Boo was on The Doctors pledging to lose 12-25 pounds from her 4ft6in, 125-pound frame.
The Doctors had provided Alana Thompson with a brand new bicycle and chef-prepared meals for a six-week period as well as new kitchen appliances for Mama June.
Honey Boo Boo and her mother returned to The Doctors on May 20, for the third and final check up.
Dr. Travis Stork confronted Mama June and said: “We sent you all these kitchen tools to help you cook and they’re still in the boxes, haven’t even been opened.”
He also accused Honey Boo Boo of saying one thing for the cameras, “but doing another”.
Meanwhile, mother-of-four June Shannon is planning to undergo lap-band surgery this summer, TMZ reported.
