Kandi Burruss couldn’t be prouder!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared the story of her daughter Riley‘s nine-month weight loss journey on Instagram Thursday, and couldn’t stop gushing — and rightfully so! It is all kinds of impressive!
Kandi says the 15-year-old (who is totally Kandi’s mini-me btw) went from 220 lbs to 168! Wow!
See the before-and-after pics and read all about her fitness journey (below)!
Iâ€™m so proud of my baby @rileyburruss! Last year (around September I think) Riley decided to get serious about being fit. With the help of her trainer @iamthekingoffitness sheâ€™s lost 52lbs!!!! & she did it the right way by working out 5 days a week & watching her calorie intake. Shout out to her friends @olivervett & @jake.vett who worked out with her & helped her to stick to it. They also lost between 40-50lbs. Yâ€™all just donâ€™t understand how hard it is to grow up in front of the public eye & in front of social media trolls who make negative comments about kids weight. Luckily Riley has tough skin & doesnâ€™t let it bother her but as her mom it used to piss me off when trolls would make negative comments about her size. Nobody knew she was over 200lbs because my daughter is tall. Sheâ€™s 5â€™9. & to be honest she wouldnâ€™t tell anybody how much she weighed but now she proudly shares it because she wants to motivate other people who are going thru the Weightloss struggle. Riley is still working out 5 days a week. Iâ€™m so proud of her dedication. Now she doesnâ€™t need help to stick to it because sheâ€™s got that self discipline that I donâ€™t even have… Riley wants to help other young people get fit & help them thru the challenges she faced. Stay tuned to what my young boss has coming next! #ProudMom â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸A post shared by Kandi Burruss (@kandi) on Jun 28, 2018 at 6:21am PDT
