Mama June revealed how she dropped 20 pounds in two months.

Mama June, 44, admitted that at first, she "was against" using the meds since she had gastric sleeve surgery in 2015, but she's glad she pulled the trigger, revealing she's "probably lost 30 pounds in like eight-and-a-half weeks."

"I’m in week nine and you can ask the girls — I am so super strict," the matriarch added of her diet.

Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson's mom also exercises "three or four times a week."

"I told people like, ‘I gained a pound and I was so mad at myself,’ because I work hard in the gym, eating only protein," June said of documenting her progress via TikTok videos. "I don’t really like bread, carbs and all that, so I’m okay with not even eating that."

June slightly adjusted her food goals recently, as instead of aiming for 80 to 100 grams of protein each day, she wants to "go back down to like 40 or 50 grams of protein," as she feels she was eating too much.

Her daughter Lauren "Pumpkin" Efrid, 24, had concerns at first, as she felt taking the injections might only be a quick fix.

"I just feel like every other time mom has lost weight so quickly, she’s gained it back, plus more each time," she explained. "She didn’t eat right, she didn’t go to the gym. She just was like, ‘f--- it, I’ll get another surgery.'"
