June “Mama June” Shannon is not slowing down in her weight-loss journey. Before a new season of Mama June: Family Crisis kicks off, the reality star is sharing an update on her health.

“Even though I’m losing weight, I’m only about three to four pounds [down] a week,” Mama June told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published Wednesday, June 12. “It isn’t as fast as a gastric sleeve or a gastric bypass, but it is doing it, like, more safer.”

In 2015, Mama June underwent a gastric sleeve surgery to lose weight. In the past year, however, she admitted to gaining between 120 and 130 pounds.

Between working out three or four times a week, changing her eating habits and using weight-loss medications, Mama June said she is getting healthier and hoping to lose 74 more pounds.

“Mama’s thing is like, when she’s really strict on herself, she’s really strict on herself,” Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird said before commenting that her mom has gone “a little overboard with it.”

While losing weight is important to Mama June, maintaining her sobriety is also a big priority. As she continues to grieve the death of her daughter Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, the reality star is inching closer to her 5-year sobriety milestone.

“Dealing with that, it kinda sucks for me in a way because everybody is waiting for me to jump off the edge,” she said when reflecting on the loss of Chickadee in December. “I have her daughters to think about. I don’t even know who that person was five years ago.”
