Kandi Burruss is on camera constantly and open to all types of scrutiny which has apparently now extended to her 15 year old daughter Riley. The shy and often quiet baby Kandi as we like to call her because they look just alike is just that, a baby and getting on social media to pick on someone’s child is wrong, period. The good part about this is that she was able to use the bullying as motivation to get in better shape and her mother congratulated her for her whopping weight loss going from 220 lbs. to 168 lbs.

“I’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 she’s lost 52lbs!!!! & she did it the right way by working out 5 days a week & watching her calorie intake,” Kandi wrote showing side by side pictures of her daughter.

But it wasn’t just Riley who lost weight, her friends got a shoutout for helping. They “worked out with her & helped her to stick to it. They also lost between 40-50lbs.”

“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,” said Kandi. “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. She’s 5’9. & to be honest she wouldn’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. I’m so proud of her dedication. Now she doesn’t need help to stick to it because she’s got that self discipline that I don’t even have… Riley wants to help other young people get fit & help them thru the challenges she faced,” said Kandi. “Stay tuned to what my young boss has coming next! #ProudMom ❤❤❤”

Her daughter’s size has been in the back of my head but like any sane individual, I said she’ll come into her own soon enough. I’m happy to see taking control of her weight and trimming down nonetheless. She has however admitted that the “journey is not over.” And as a blogger, those words are music to my ears.

“I have larger goals I am trying to reach and I hope everybody follows me throughout my journey. I’ve been seeing peoples comments about them struggling with weight loss,” Riley captioned the same Instagram picture.

She added, “I know the struggle & its real. But it can be done. Roll with me and lets do it together! & i just want to thank every one for your supportive comments!”

Doesn’t she look great? I had no idea Riley was 220 lbs whatsoever but I’m happy for her to be excited about getting fit. More people need to have this attitude.
