Kim Kardashian is known for breaking the internet with her butt, enviable curves, and promoting weight loss products on Instagram. However, this past week she revealed she has gained 18 pounds and is not ashamed.
The Kardashian sisters speak frequently about their exercise and diet regimes, and don’t keep it a secret when their weight fluctuates. After 18 seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it’s no surprise that the 3 famous sisters would struggle with their body confidence while in the spotlight for such a long time.
Last week, Kim wrote on her Instagram stories of her 18-pound weight gain, saying, “OK, so we’re doing a night workout before my dinner, which I never do with this one, but I figured we have to get into it at some point. And yeah, I mean, sometimes we fall off and sometimes you really gotta get it together and this is one of my fallen off times where I am, I think, 18 pounds up from what I was about a year ago, a year and a half ago. To feel good, I just want to get it like, a really good goal weight and so that means working out at all costs. It’s my eating. I work out but it’s like, my eating. But Melissa and I have a major goal for by the time I’m 40.”
Though Kim has expressed her desire to lose weight and get back into better shape before she turns 40, this hasn’t stopped her from showing off her body.
She recently shared an Elle Woods inspired Halloween costume to her 151 million Instagram followers in which she wore a tight pink dress that left little to the imagination. She also shared a video full of Elle Woods outfits, including that famous pink, glittery bikini. If she really has gained any weight, it definitely doesn’t show!
Actress Jameela Jamil has criticized the Kardashian sisters in the past for their promotion of weight loss products and body makeup.
She has called out Kim for her KKW body range, which features body makeup to cover up things like veins, bruises, or psoriasis, something Kim struggles with.
Jameela tweeted, “God damn the work to take it all off before bed so it doesn’t destroy your sheets… I’d rather just make peace with my million stretch marks and eczema.”
She continued, “Taking off my mascara is enough of a pain in the ae. Save money and time and give yourself a damn break. I have such severe eczema all over that my legs are covered in huge patches of pigment loss from scratching. I have a tonne of stretch marks, and because I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, every time I cut, I scar. I refuse to have these normal human marks weaponized against me.”
She later apologized for being preachy.
Kim showed off her figure at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards on Sunday night. If she has gained weight, then it hasn’t damaged her figure at all. The mom of 4, who just welcomed son Psalm into the world this year, showed she was still confident with her body, in a snakeskin dress.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians won The Reality Show of 2019 award, so basically Kim and Co. are having a great year!
A source recently told People, “She gained weight this year because she has been too busy to keep up with that insane schedule.” Which is completely understandable!
The source also said, “Kanye loves her the way she is. He doesn’t like it when she basically kills herself to be skinnier.” Well said.
Enjoy your life Kim, and maybe the occasional burger as well. We’re not judging!
