"Positive And Confident"

Sy’Rai Smith continues to inspire fans with her weight loss journey. Brandy’s daughter recently took to TikTok with a video that delved into her decision to shed pounds.


Sy’Rai began the story of her journey in the clip with her “unhealthy relationship with food.” The young adult equated her tendency to eat junk food in excess to her feelings of depression that led her on a rollercoaster ride of losing weight and gaining it back within a matter of months.

Although she “tried to stay positive and confident,” Sy’Rai appeared unable to shake the habits that led to her poor nutritional decisions. She “gained over 160 pounds” before losing 30 pounds and thinking she would be “happier.” The happiness that came from losing weight did not last long as Sy’rai “gained it right back because I became depressed.”

No one in her family rejected her because of the weight she gained. Still, Sy’Rai “felt like the outsider” and identified food as her “only friend.”

It wasn’t until she “had the scariest health scare” that Sy’Rai decided to make changes. She “stayed in the hospital for weeks” before deciding to change her life and “heal.”

Healing took on many forms, which included Sy’Rai fueling her body “the right way.” She moved away from using food as comfort and towards a lifestyle that appreciated the value of healthy eating. Smith also began to appreciate herself “and cut people who were toxic off.”

Traveling and a desire to model came with Sy’Rai’s weight loss as she began to care about what she wore. The young adult also found the love of her life and healed her relationship with her mom.

Many found Sy’Rai’s weight loss story on TikTok to be nothing short of inspirational. “Congratulations,” one social media fan shared after watching the video collage. “Health is wealth and you are truly blessed and beautiful!” Another of Sy’Rai’s supporters wrote, “That’s what I’m talking about. It’s a journey but so worth taking it.”
