Honey Boo Boo Starts Shaping Up!
If you know anything about Honey Boo Boo, you’ll know that she loves her food. However, she also likes to look good, and just lately she was tipping the scales at a weight a little unhealthy for her age. If you’re a Honey Boo Boo fan, you’ll be pleased to know that she’s started shaping up!
Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, has always been slightly bigger than your average 9 year old. However, her mom said she was happy and that’s all that mattered. While a happy little girl is essential, you do need to make sure that you aren’t encouraging bad eating habits for her which will affect her later on in life. ‘Mama June’ has realised this finally after she came under fire for allowing her daughter to pile on the weight.
It’s already been a bit of a roller coaster for Honey Boo Boo. She lost a little weight, but then piled it back on. She only stands at 4ft 6 inches and weighs a big 9 stone! Mama June appeared on TV declaring that she would help her little girl get the weight off, and the show even gave them advice, new kitchen appliances, and chef prepared meals to help. When Mama June appeared on the show again, her little girl hadn’t lost any weight at all. She was confronted by the shows producers for having sugary snacks in the house, and for not even having taken her appliances out of the boxes.
It isn’t just about getting Honey Boo Boo, or Alana, to look and feel like other children. It’s about her health. She already has asthma, and if she doesn’t lose between 12 and 25 pounds, she could be in for a lot of trouble when she’s older. The way it’s going, she’s going to continue piling the weight on until she is beyond help. The only way to help in future may be a NYBG lap-band procedure. If Mama June sorts herself out, she might actually give her little girl a chance of a healthy life. She herself lost some weight a few years back; she lost a whopping 100 pounds! This makes it even stranger that she’s struggling to help Honey Boo Boo. By taking a look at pictures online, you can see what a massive difference this made to her appearance. At the time, she said she thought that Honey Boo Boo was losing her baby fat. However, it appears to have been more than just ‘baby fat’ – it isn’t a valid excuse when you’re allowing your little girl to gorge on sugary snacks!
All Mama June needs to do is control what her daughter puts in her mouth and encourage her to get a little exercise. In this last month, she has lost a total of 8 pounds, which mama June revealed on Instagram. They are both thrilled, but she needs to keep it up if she wants to live a healthy life for good!
Lots of luck to them!
