According to her, she has never had a slim waste or a fit body. Even in childhood, she was chubby and mocked by her classmates. Her family’s financial situation and unhealthy diet only helped her gain weight. June ate cheap and fattening food, and her parents simply didn’t have money to send her to a gym. It all led to her weighing more than 440 pounds (200 kilos) when she reached 30.
Her husband’s betrayal was the last straw. It is rumored that her spouse left her because of her excess weight. In addition to that, he was constantly abusing her, offending and ridiculing for this. Her husband’s behavior didn’t break June’s spirit but only strengthened it, and pushed her to change herself. To get back at him, June risked a daring adventure – rapid weight loss covered by media.

Naturally, the surgery wasn’t the end of it. The star had to keep a strict diet and severely limit her carbohydrate intake. The woman admitted that one simple thought kept her going – a thought of how gorgeous she is going to look at her ex’s wedding.
June shares her secrets with everybody who wants do lose weight. She had to cut her usual portion to a half or even a third. Moreover, she changed her food habits. Though, she indulged herself a bit anyway – she can’t resist grapes and fine cheeses, even though nutritionists insist on limiting them as well.
One more secret is a nap before lunch and no breakfast at all. Fortunately, her schedule allowed it.
Her efforts were not in vain, and now the woman looks fabulous. Now, all she has to do is to attend her ex-husband’s wedding, as she planned, and make him regret. It’s a perfect way to get even with your ex, don’t you think?
