Talk about a transformation!
Kandi Burruss‘ fifteen-year-old daughter Riley Burruss has dropped 52-pounds through diet and exercise.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and proud mommy gushed about Riley’s amazing accomplishment on Instagram telling fans “I’m so proud of my baby @rileyburruss!”
In the post, Kandi explained Riley’s decision to get healthy, “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. 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.”

Kandi also opened up about some of Riley’s struggles; explaining that it’s not easy to grow up on reality TV.
” 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. 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,” Kandi explained.
However, now Riley is proud of her weight and is hoping to help other people who are struggling to lose weight.
“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. Stay tuned to what my young boss has coming next! #ProudMom,” Kandi wrapped.
Riley also showed off her weight loss pictures and thanked everyone for their support.
