Kim always prefers social media to update her fans about her personal and professional ongoing.
And like always, she made timely posts regarding her struggle with weight loss. The 5’3” star said to gain almost 60 pounds during her pregnancy as her pre-pregnancy weight was 135 pounds.

She once told E! News that she’s trying to lose weight quickly after the birth of Saint, as she has now learned to eat better.

Kim did not stay in her nest cooing and cuddling her baby but stepped out from her comfort zone to make a difference.
Immediately after giving birth, the reality star did not take a break and started to shed her extra pounds, gained during the pregnancy.
Let us say Kim’s biggest motivator was her summer GQ cover, in which she posed almost nude.
She once told WWD that if you commit for a shoot, you have to be there by any means.
It made her feel really good to see how far she has reached. For this, she had to lose 60 pounds and it sounds crazy to her!
Kim preferred to take professional help:
Besides her daily workout routine, which Kim used to post regularly on Snapchat, she used to visit gym at 6am with her trainer Don Brooks.
She also started Atkins 40 diet that restricts your calorie intake up to 40 grams a day.
She followed the diet strictly and this time, she did not leave any stone unturned to get in shape.
For her, losing weight was a bit difficult after North’s birth, but after her second pregnancy, she feels more confident and determined.
It’s not only about the workout:
Kim loves to workout but you need to exercise a lot to tone your body, she added.
But, it is not always about hitting gyms and running, it is paying a special attention towards the diet too, as you really need to cut your daily caloric intake.
Kim confessed of having a sweet tooth and how she had to control her cravings to shed weight. You have no other option but to curb it as much as possible.
She loves her after-baby body and takes it as a challenge.
She is amazed by the power of a women’s body, as how incredibly it goes through so many changes and possesses such admiring capabilities.
Kim’s crazy weight loss – at a glance:

Yes, Kim was aggressive and eager but not reckless.Despite of the weight loss, she wanted to produce breast milk. Kim’s nutritionist Colette Heimowitz wanted her to have a slow and steady weight loss and so she designed a diet plan that has the nutritional value for lactating mothers.

Well, her journey is truly inspiring but that’s not the end for Kim.
