Kourtney Kardashian's Post-Baby Body: Reality Star Shows Off Slim Figure In Bikini (PHOTO)

Last week, Life & Style ran a cover with a photo of a slim Kourtney Kardashian that was actually three years old. Sneaky. But those who felt mislead by the headline can now relax. The reality star graces the new cover of Us Weekly in a real, untouched photo that shows off the stunning 44-pound weight loss Kardashian has undergone since giving birth to baby Penelope in July.

In the issue, the 106-pound, 5-foot Kardashian dons a gold string bikini and tells the magazine that celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson's dance workouts and small portions helped her return to her pre-baby weight.

"It's harder to lose weight the second time around. I gained 45 pounds with Penelope," Kardashian told the publication. "This time, the focus is really on being a mom and being present, knowing my priorities."
