And, she believes it is something people will understand. Just what has caused her to pack on the pounds? Keep reading for the scoop on Mama June’s weight gain.
Mama June Shannon blames the pandemic on her weight gain
Speaking exclusively to InTouch Weekly, Mama June Shannon reveals the pandemic is the real reason for her massive weight gain. In fact, the TV personality fessed up to gaining around 70 pounds during quarantine.
Now, the From Not to Hot star admitted she expected to gain some weight during the lock down. But, she was caught off guard by the massive weight gain. The 41-year-old certainly didn’t expect to gain as much weight as she did.
I mean, I feel I gained 70 pounds after I got out of rehab, but I also blame not doing drugs and coronavirus on it, too. I call it corona fat.”
Fans of the Toddlers and Tiaras alum know she and her boyfriend Geno Doak recently spent time in rehab for their drug addition. And, now, Mama June and her boyfriend are feeling much better. They are working on self-love. And, they want to continue to make positive changes.
So, gaining a bunch of weight during quarantine was a real bummer.
She dreams of weighing 200 pounds
The reality TV star admits she would love nothing more than to slim back down to weighing 140 pounds again. But, she’s not interested in setting unrealistic goals for herself. Instead, she thinks 200 pounds is a nice goal. And, a much healthier target weight than her current weight.
She continued to explain: “With this quarantine, it is kind of hard, but I’m just trying to maintain where I’m at now. It is kind of work. I mean, I’ll never be back down to like 140 [pounds] and that’s OK with me. Probably my goal now is to be like 200.”

The captions of her recent Instagram posts say she’s also working on self-love and really feeling herself these days.
