Mrs. Kimye has always seemed to be comfortable in her skin, wearing form fitting, hip hugging and bootylicious types of clothing that puts emphasis on her figure in all the right places! However, Kim Kardashian got real open and honest with her followers recently on her twitter page. It seems that even tho she exudes confidence, she may not be as comfortable in her skin as she portrays.
I guess having a baby, and getting married has added a couple more pounds than Kim would have liked. She tweeted;
“Off to an intense workout. Can’t seem to shake this last 15-20 lbs. of baby weight. No more excuses. my baby is 1 years old! UGH, I’m not gonna call it baby weight bc that’s an excuse. I just gained weight & that’s it. Why is it so much harder to lose after baby though?!!”
Kim gained 50 pounds during her pregnancy with baby North, and reportedly lost about 43 pounds just a couple of months after giving birth, and if our calculations are right, she must have packed on another 13 or more pounds since.
So what happened? She responds with some more tweeting;
“I think after having a baby u get so excited u lost a lot of weight then u get comfortable and eat how you used and it creeps back up….Do any of u moms see their bodies just not the same? a different shape?” “Ughhhh my hips and butt are huge now! They were big to begin with!”
So, is it really harder to lose the weight after having a baby? Is there a difference between getting rid of the extra pounds before compared to after having children? Kathleen Zelman, a Nutritionist explains
that losing weight after giving birth is indeed different from before having a baby, especially if the mom is breastfeeding her child.
In Kim Kardashian’s case she gained more than the average pregnant woman (which is anywhere between 25-35lbs) making it even more difficult to get it off, because there is more to lose. Zelman also explains that studies show that if a mother doesn’t get the “baby weight” off within a year of giving birth, those extra pounds are more likely to become permanent.
It may also be harder to fit back into those skinny jeans, because new moms are mostly likely sleep deprived, and are tired, lacking the energy to exercise. Zelman advises a healthy diet is the best way to start the weight loss process.
Good luck Kim, with getting to your goal weight any to any other new mommies out there! Just because it maybe harder, doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
