The 38-year-old reality star took to Instagram on Wednesday to celebrate the Fourth of July and share an update on her weight loss journey, revealing that she’s “gained a few pounds back.”
“Happy 4th of July America‼️??? I remember when I took this picture I had just lost 60lbs and felt great about myself,” she wrote alongside a snap of her grinning in a red one-piece suit on the beach. “I’m still proud of this pic and myself for coming so far. Regardless if I gained a few pounds back I’m still beautimess! #LoveYourself #LoveYourSize #WereAllBeautiful #MamaJune #fromnottohot?”
"It's understandable why she would gain the weight back. She's had so many surgeries in the last six months, it's totally understandable,” June’s daughter, Alana Thompson -- who’s known as Honey Boo Boo -- told ET of her mom’s ever-present health issues. “I would gain weight if I had six surgeries in the last six months [too]."
One of those health issues is vision loss -- June is completely blind in her right eye and may eventually lose sight in her left eye too -- a disability that makes it difficult for her to enjoy big family milestones.
"When [my daughter] Jessica graduated college back in May, I wasn't able to see that," she told ET’s Lauren Zima last month. "It's emotional for me just thinking about it."
