Mama Joyce has been steadily shedding some extra pounds for at least several months now, and Kandi Burruss is one proud daughter who is in awe of all her mother has accomplished. Kandi’s road to the altar and eventual wedding to Todd Tucker took its toll on the mother-daughter pair (Joyce isn’t a fan of Todd’s, though we hear they’re getting along better now) but they seem to be in a good place now, so Kandi was quick to share Mama Joyce’s latest weight loss update.


The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Instagram to issue an update, posting two side-by-side pictures of her mom and writing, “The left is #tbt of my mom from when we went to @monicabrown's wedding & the right pic was last year. My mom is smaller than that now. Shouts out to @dwlatlanta! It really works. I'm starting on the program now. Dramaticweightloss.com.”

Where do we start? There are so many things we love about this photo/caption combo! First off, Mama Joyce is looking downright fierce and she knows it. She’s always been a confident lady, but now that she’s dropped some unwanted pounds she seems even more comfortable in her own skin.

The second thing we love about this is that Kandi mentions that Mama Joyce is even slimmer now. Whenever you start a diet it can be easy to lose weight initially, but the hard part is keeping it off. Thankfully, Mama Joyce seems to have that under control.

Lastly, we appreciate that Mama Joyce’s weight loss has inspired Kandi to drop some weight of her own. To us, Kandi (and Mama Joyce for that matter) are wonderful at any size, but we know Kandi has struggled with her weight in the past, so if shedding a couple of pounds makes her feel better about herself than we’re all for it!

What do you think of Mama Joyce’s weight loss? Should Kandi be joining her on this diet? Weigh in below!
