“Mama June” Shannon isn’t even debating using Ozempic to lose weight because she wants to stay sober.

The “From Not to Hot” star, who once lost 300 pounds but has gained 100 back, said she also is not interested in the drug meant to treat diabetes because it has “bad side effects.”

“I don’t want to try Ozempic because, honestly, I’ve heard about so many bad side effects,” she told Thursday.

“It is using a drug that isn’t really prescribed to do that. They’re using a diabetic drug to take care of weight loss.”

Celebrities who have admitted to using Ozempic, or the generic semaglutide, to shed pounds include Sharon Osbourne and “Real Housewives of New Jersey” co-stars Dolores Catania and Jennifer Fessler, but Shannon does not want to risk her sobriety.

“No offense to people out there that are doing it, but it’s just not for me. I want to stay clean,” she explained. “I’m not judging anyone, but it’s not for me.”

The reality star, 43, also shot down claims that a bad diet is to blame for her weight gain, saying that she is not even close to her biggest size.

“I’ve only put on back on 100 pounds, and I was actually putting back on that weight before I got sober,” she shared. “I’ve literally been at 241 pounds for almost two years. God pretty much wants me where I’m at right now.”

Shannon has been promoting her her WE tv series “Mama June: Family Crisis” and also opened up to Page Six exclusively about her “extravagant” Florida wedding to Justin “Smallz” Stroud.

“I’ll tell you like this: We paid $13,000. No lie,” she told us last week.

Shannon said that the total sum paid for her Panama City venue, hotel rooms, wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, the fee for her wedding planner plus the cost of multiple events throughout their 2022 weekend celebration.

The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” alum also maintained “nothing was comped,” while Stroud raved that any “stress” associated with footing the bill for their own nuptials was well worth it.

“The stress was OK, though because of the meaning it had behind it and who all was there spoke a lot of volumes,” he said of their nuptials, which included under 40 guests.

“We had only 38 people at our wedding, and it was his family and my family only,” Shannon added, “and we had an amazing wedding designer, and she put together an extravagant wedding that looked like I paid $50,000.”
