We've seen Ariana Biermann grow up right before our eyes over seven seasons on Don't Be Tardy, and her latest snap shows just how much she's matured since the show's premiere in 2012. Kim Zolciak-Biermann's daughter took to Instagram to show off her impressive 30-pound weight loss, and the 17-year-old is exuding confidence.
To recap, Kim recently opened up to ET about her daughter's struggle with body image and the online backlash she receives, saying that Instagram users leave "nasty comments" like "‘You’re fat, you’ve always been fat....’ just horrible, mean, mean things."
But despite what the critics have to say, Ariana has taken her health into her own hands, and the result is downright inspiring. "[Ariana] works out at the gym every day," Kim shared. "She’s itty-bitty tiny. She’s really kind of come into her own."
Ariana's latest snap from a beach trip proves just that. Her sly smile and sassy hair flip are radiating happiness.
In addition to her hard work ethic, Ariana has a solid support system behind her, too. Her sister, Brielle, commented, "Y’all r just f---ing pressed bc my sis lost 30 pounds and you’ve never seen her naked okurrr." Her boyfriend (and prom date) also left her a sweet message: "Holy s--t I can't believe your [sic] mine."
And although Ariana's accomplishment is worth celebrating, Kim strives to teach her children that it's what's on the inside that matters most: "I do believe that beauty shines from, truly, within," Kim said. "We focus on that kind of thing...I always want my girls to love themselves, no matter what size they are.”
