Kardashian, 33, said her pregnancy was extremely difficult. The situation was exacerbated by the constant media fat-shaming she was subjected to whenever she gained a few pounds.
Every day I would hear people criticize me, and it would affect me. Little by little it would chip away at my soul. I wanted to tune out the media and my public life and ignore it all.
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."
Kim is now enjoying motherhood and her engagement to baby-daddy Kanye West, 36.
Losing this weight has not been easy. But I did it, and that's so rewarding. I was dedicated and motivated and that paid off. This makes me feel like I have the strength to take on other challenges."
Kardashian said her eating plan has enabled her to slim down without working out obsessively. When she does hit the gym, Kim does Pilates, boot-camp workouts, cardio sessions on the treadmill, and strength-training.
