Kim Kardasian Speaks out about Her Post-Baby Weight Loss

October 23, 2013

Kim Kardashian is opening up about her post-baby weight loss in a new interview. The newly engaged mother reveals that she has lost 43 pounds since giving birth even as she talks about her past and current struggles.

This time, Kim Kardashian spoke with “People” magazine in an exclusive interview right after her 33rd birthday and Kanye West’s gloriously extravagant marriage proposal to her at AT&T Park stadium in San Francisco. Even before this latest interview, her weight loss had been a more intensified topic of discussion than usual as she had Tweeted a revealing selfie of herself in a skimpy white one-piece thong-style swimsuit that exposed her famous rear. Yes, there was a backlash on Twitter.

But as the 33-year-old KUWTK star reveals, she has suffered for a long time with such abusive comments. She told the publication that the “scrutiny” was “painful” and she wanted to “tune out media.”

“People” reports that she has now lost 43 of the 50 pounds she gained while pregnant with North West, her now four month old daughter with Kanye West. We do not have a clue as to her starting weight before pregnancy nor her interim weight or her goal weight. But the numerous paparazzi photos show she has slimmed down remarkably. She said, “Pregnancy for me was a lot tougher than people saw on my show or from magazines. So to get back to feeling like myself just makes me feel good again.”

As for the weight loss secrets, we have had tidbits thus far. She has said via Twitter that she used the Atkins diet. Later an official spokesperson for Atkins chimed in affirming and approving of her approach. She had also spoken out in a widely quoted interview with the London, UK newspaper The Sunday Times both on the diet she had chosen as well as on how devastated she felt by criticism over her weight which she said let her to feel “completely destroyed.”

Such fat shaming is deplorable and can be devastating for anyone. Sadly Twitter and other social media — to say nothing of tabloids, blogs and mainstream media — have too often become a chorus of disapproval and scorn, as if a celebrity has no feelings. Hopefully her candor over the pain she has endured might jolt some into realizing how insensitive and cruel such abusiveness can be.

Always a lightning rod for comment — both positive and negative — the newly engaged Kim Kardasian does have a bit of much-welcomed weight in the form of a 15-caret diamond engagement ring even as she continues on her weight loss journey.
