"My mom was with me through everything. She saw me go through a lot. And I just decided to really take my health seriously,” she explained. “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. I had so many issues with my health."

With good mental health at the forefront of her mind—along with being there for her little siblings and family—she began to notice a change in her body. "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.”

While she admits that she experienced pressure by social media to look a certain way, she didn’t let it change her overall goals.

"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, and then I grow up in an era where a lot of young women compare themselves to other girls on social media,” she explained. "I know my body has been through a lot. 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. But I do feel a little pressure. You know people have eyes on me all the time, people have eyes on my mom all the time.”

As you may remember, Sy’Rai went viral a few months back after revealing her weight loss transformation on Instagram. Since then, the budding social media influencer has continuously wows us with her dance moves, singing abilities, and overall beauty.

She concluded, "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.' But that’s not normal."

Speak out, sis! We are so proud of Sy’Rai for being so vocal and transparent about her transformation and using her platform to inspire others to dive into self-care and positive well-being.

Clearly feeling the same, proud mom Brandy took to Instagram, writing: "What an amazing human being. I love your spirit and your smile. So brave to walk in your purpose and shine in your truth all up on @therealdaytime."

So sweet. Speaking of good news, Sy'Rai is currently embarking on her music industry with her mom by her side. We look forward to it!
