Kim Zolciak-Biermann‘s daughter Ariana Biermann is setting the record straight.

Over the weekend, Ariana, 19, shared a series of social media posts addressing some “ridiculous and awful” comments about her body, explaining that her weight loss journey hasn’t happened overnight.

“I’m so over everyone acting like I lost 50 lbs. overnight,” she wrote. “I was 167 my sophomore year. 145ish the end of my junior. Started really working out, eating healthy, etc. January of 2020. I am now 118 over a year and half later. I was 125 last summer.”

“Please stop. I do not have an eating disorder. I worked my ass off to get to where I am today. I am not sick. This is ridiculous and awful to say to someone. Stop commenting on people’s bodies and worry about yourself,” she added.

Ariana said that she didn’t have any “insane secret” on how to get in shape, explaining that she lost weight by running every day, intermittent fasting and cutting out soda.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star previously opened up about how her daughter had struggled with her body image as a result of growing up in the spotlight.

“People on Instagram, especially, are so f—— rude about it that I have to monitor her page constantly because of the nasty comments,” Zolciak-Biermann, 43, told Entertainment Tonight in 2019, after her daughter had lost 30 lbs.

“Now, they’re saying all she does is photoshop her pictures, ’cause she’s not that small,” she added. “It’s a constant battle, and I always want my girls to love themselves, no matter what size they are.”
