You better redneckognize Mama June’s weight loss!

The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch says she has shed more than 100 lbs. – without dieting or ever setting foot in a gym, TMZ reports.

“I haven’t done any surgeries … no diet pills … never went to the gym,” June says. “But with the show I’ve been more active.”

Mama June – whose real name is June Shannon – says that when she first started taping the TLC reality show in January 2011, she weighed 365 lbs. But now she says she weighs 263 lbs. – a 102-lb. weight loss!

“They have me running around and going different places … I guess it’s paying off,” she says.

Recently, Mama June revealed that she set up a trust fund for her daughter, Alanna “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson – who makes anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 an episode – and for her other daughters, and it won’t be available to them until they each turn 21.
