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. 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. 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. & 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 ❤️❤️❤️

After a stunning weight loss, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” kid Riley Burruss is winning much-deserved praise from her mother, Kandi Burruss.

On Thursday, the singer posted a lengthy congratulatory message to her teenage daughter marking her 52-pound weight loss.

“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.

“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,” Burruss added before shouting out the 15-year-old’s two friends who also lost 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 200 lbs 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 weight loss struggle.”

Kandi noted her daughter continues to hit the gym 5 days out of the week and that she’s “so proud” of Riley’s dedication to fitness.

“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,” she concluded.

The post attracted hundreds of supportive comments backing up Riley, including some from some RHOA stars.

“Yayyyy Riley!! You look great!! Keep up the good work 💕😍😍.”

“Congratulations @rileyburruss! You’re amazing. @kandi, I know how you wanted to kick some of these people’s asses about your beautiful baby girl! God’s blessings on your girl and family! She’s a beauty.”

“My journey is not over,” she said. “I have larger goals I am trying to reach and I hope everybody follows me throughout my journey. I’ve been seeing people’s comments about them struggling with weight loss. I know the struggle & its real. But it can be done. Roll with me and let’s do it together! & I just want to thank everyone for your supportive comments!”
