Forget fad diets or hours spent sweating in the gym … June Shannon – aka: Mama June of TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” -- lost a whopping 102 pounds doing absolutely nothing.

The 33-year-old mother of Honey Boo Boo dropped from 365 pounds to 263 pounds over the past two years, thanks to the busy life that comes with being a TLC reality star (before “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the family appeared often on the network’s “Toddlers and Tiaras”).

"I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym," Shannon told TMZ, "but with the show I've been more active. They have me running around and going different places ... I guess it's paying off."

Honey Boo Boo and her family – who are often shown indulging in junk food, like “sketti” (butter and ketchup-covered noodles), on their hit show – have been widely criticized for their weight, especially 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo herself (real name: Alana Thompson).

Although Shannon has dropped a ton of weight, she is not concerned with her famous child’s size. “She’s not skinny but, whether skinny or fat, I am still going to love my children regardless,” she told “Good Morning America” last year. “I could care less if they get up to 1,000 pounds; I am still going to love them.”
