"I Knew My Life Wasn't Going To Be As Long"

Brandy’s daughter, Sy’Rai Smith, is ready to talk about her weight loss journey. The young adult recently stopped by The Real where she made her TV debut sharing her story.


“I had a lot of health issues when I was at the size that I was,” Sy’Rai told the show’s hosts. “My mom was with me through everything. She saw me go through a lot. And I just decided to really take my health seriously. So I changed my mindset, changed my mentality, and I knew that being in the body that I was in … I knew my life wasn’t going to be as long.”

Sy’Rai went viral a few months back after revealing her weight loss transformation on Instagram. Many took the young adult’s commitment to healthy living as an inspiration to start their own weight loss journeys. Sy’Rai told The Real hosts that her transformation came with a few mental battles that she had to overcome to remain on the right path.

“I wanted to change because of my health at first. But then, obviously, with health and changing your lifestyle weight loss kind of comes. [And] it did come,” the young adult explained. “I started becoming a little bit more obsessed with the scale, with how I looked, how my body was transforming. And it wasn’t easy to look at myself,” Sy’Rai admitted.

“I did feel pressure to kind of quickly do it, or try and maneuver how I would, you know, ‘Let me not eat this for a week.’ Or, ‘Let me kind of change up everything just to kind of form a little Instagram body,'” Sy’Rai revealed during her interview on The Real.

“I know my body has been through a lot,” the young adult further explained. “I always have to remind myself of that. The scars that I have, the stretch marks that I have, everything that my body has been through is for a purpose [and] it’s for a reason.”
