“I haven’t done any surgeries, no diet pills, never went to the gym,” June reveals to TMZ. “But with the show I’ve been more active.”
Mama June says she weighed 365 lbs when the show first starting taping in January 2011, but has since slimmed down to 263 lbs.
“They have me running around and going different places,” the reality star continued to TMZ. “I guess it’s paying off.”

The Thompson family currently earn between $15K – $20K per episode. The show is currently filming a second season.
