Here Comes Honey Boo Boo‘s Mama June (June Shannon) is happy to report that her daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson has lost nearly 8 lbs. in the past month, dropping from 125.5 lbs to 118.

Shannon, 35, who said she’s proud of her 9-year-old daughter’s progress, credited the weight loss to “eating smaller portions and walking” as well as support from the family’s personal trainer, Natasha Fett.

Shannon also reported that she has lost 45 lbs. and her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has lost 26 lbs. She went on to say that it all happened because Fett was “someone who genuinely cares about us … getting healthier and changing [our] minds.”
