Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

"Mama June" Shannon's daughters are giving away new secrets about the reality star's new weight loss and highly anticipated show, Mama June: From Not to Hot.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 11, and Lauryn "Pumpkin" Thompson, 17 sat down to discuss their mother's biggest transformation yet and how she got there.

"She had gastric sleeve back in May of 2015, and then she slowly started losing weight, and the reason she got the gastric sleeve was because she hit a plateau — she couldn't lose any weight," Pumpkin told ET's Jennifer Peros. "And then it came to a point where the trainer had to step in because she hit another plateau with the gastric sleeve, and wasn't losing any more weight."

"Her stomach started looking gross," Pumpkin continued. "It was hanging from where she lost so much weight, and her arms and her chin, so she got the skin on her stomach removed."

According to her daughters, Mama June also underwent breast surgery.

"She got her boobies done," Pumpkin added. "She got them from a 44 long to 36 up."

As fans know, the reality star mother of four weighed 365 pounds when she started filming TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in 2012. The following year, in 2013, Shannon claimed to have lost 100 pounds. However, shortly after this photo was taken at the 24th Annual GLAAD Awards, she gained most of the weight back!

And now that she's finally shed the extra pounds, Pumpkin revealed that Mama June still sees herself as vastly overweight.

"I think that her biggest thing she has to overcome is that fact that she still thinks of herself as a bigger person, because, even to this day, like, a couple of days ago we had a conversation, and. . .she looked in the mirror and was like, 'I'm still fat,'" Pumpkin said. "And I guess because she's seen herself as a bigger person all these years, she doesn't realize how small she is."

"That's what she's used to doing, and when you're a bigger person, that's how you disguise all of that — through wearing bigger clothes," Crooks weighs in. "So, now, we're having to transform her mind even more so. . .because she has curves now, she looks awesome."

Earlier this week, Mama June dished to Radar: "I’ve lost at least half of my body! People said yeah that I look good, so I took it to the extreme like everything else."
