Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss Proudly Shows Off Daughter Riley’s 52lbs Weight Loss
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss took to Instagram Thursday morning to show off her daughter’s amazing 52-pound weight loss.
The reality star shared the before-and-after shot of her 15-year-old, with the caption:
“I’m so proud of my baby @rileyburruss! Last year (around September I think) Riley decided to get serious about being fit.”
Riley went from 220 pounds to 168 pounds by doing it “the right way by working out 5 days a week & watching her calorie intake,” Burruss explained. As a proud of a mother she is, Kandi also shared how difficult it was to see her daughter go through the negative comments on social media due to her size.
“Y’all just don’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,” she wrote. “Luckily Riley has tough skin & doesn’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.”
Kandi also said that Riley wouldn’t share her initial weight, but she’s is now more confident and happy to reveal her starting point in order to help others get motivated.
“Stay tuned to what my young boss has coming next!” Burruss said.
