In 2019, Ariana Biermann tweaked her diet and upped her workout regimen. Over time, the Don't Be Tardy daughter lost about 30 pounds from the lifestyle changes. What hasn't changed, unfortunately, are the body-shaming comments that plague her social media feed.

Back in 2019, Ariana's mama Kim Zolciak-Biermann told ET that her teenage daughter was battling "nasty comments" about her weight on Instagram. And just this month, Ariana hinted that she was still dealing with hurtful messages. 

"I'm so over everyone like I lost 50 pounds overnight," the fashion-lover wrote in a July Instagram Story. "I was 167 my sophomore year [of high school]. 145ish the end of my junior. Started really working out, eating healthy, etc. January of 2020. I am now 118 over a year and a half later. I was 125 last summer. Please stop. I do not have an eating disorder. I worked my ass off to get where I am today. I am not sick. This is ridiculous and awful to say to someone. Please stop commenting on [people's] bodies and worry about yourself." 

In posts that followed, Ariana shared more about her slow-but-steady approach to losing weight. "I wish I could give [y'all] some insane secret to get skinny overnight but I [can't,]" she wrote. "[That's] not what I did. I ran 3-5 miles a day with a waist trainer in 90 degree weather. It was hell. I went to the gym, and worked out. I went into caloric deficit. I did intermittent fasting. I counted my calories. I ate healthy. I stopped snacking. I didn't drink soda anymore ... So [it's] a process. It takes time. But believe in yourself. Do it for you."

Later, she wrote: "It was not easy. But it was the best thing I ever did for myself and my body." Sharing photos of herself in workout gear and a bikini, Ariana concluded her story with an empowering statement. "[I'm] so happy with myself. I've never felt so beautiful."
