Honey Boo Boo first became famous when she appeared as a young beauty queen in Toddlers & Tiaras. She and her mother, Mama June, took the nation by storm with their unusual lifestyle as self-proclaimed “rednecks.”

It wasn’t just that the family was crass and over the top, it was also that their love and respect for one another always came first. Mama June was known for her accepting attitude, but also for some unhealthy eating habits.

It’s been five years since Here Comes Honey Boo Boo debuted on TLC, and now Mama June is nearly unrecognizable. On her new series, From Not to Hot, Mama June and the family adopt a new healthy lifestyle.

Mama June already looks totally different, and this isn’t even after her full transformation, which we’ll be watching and waiting to see.

Honey Boo Boo is convinced that no one will believe it’s really Mama June at the end of the series.

“Some people are going to say, ‘This is not the real her and this is a woman standing in for her,'” Honey Boo Boo said.

Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin both say their mom is already happier, although they aren’t too excited about swapping fried chicken for baked.

See how different Mama June already looks in the video below and let us know what you think about the family getting healthy together.
