"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" matriarch and star "Mama" June Shannon claims to have lost more than 100 pounds just in time for the TLC reality series' Sunday return. Mama June, who was criticized for her family's unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits documented on the show (and parodied by "South Park"), said she not only lost the weight but did so without diet or exercise.

"I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym," June told TMZ. "But with the show I've been more active." The celeb gossip site reports that June has gone from 365 pounds in 2011 to a present day 263. But despite her weight loss, June assured The Huffington Post, "We love fried food."

On top of the weight drop, June has also gone blonde, also telling The Huffington Post, "No, I have not felt no pressure to change. I was blond about six years ago and I wanted to go back blond, so I went back blond and I loved it."

What do you think of Mama June's dramatic weight loss? Will you watch this weekend's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" clip show?
