Dear Kim Kardashian, stop being so hard on yourself.
In recent weeks, the 33-year-old reality star has taken to posting old photos of herself and reminiscing about her "#skinnydays," for her diet and workout motivation. "#FBF ughhh I am 20 lbs lighter here! This was just 5 years ago! Ok I'm going back on my grind. I gotta get back here," she wrote along with a photo of herself from February 2010.
On Aug. 5, Kardashian's obsession again reared its head when she took to Twitter to announce her weight loss plan with her 22.6 million followers:
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 thats an excuse. i just gained weight & that's it. why is it so much harder to lose after baby though!!
do any of u moms see their bodies just not the same? a different shape? ughhhh my hips & butt are huge now! they were big to begin with!
Kardashian continued her thoughts on the subject, writing in a series of tweets:
"Just need to get down to my weight a few years ago. Not gonna complain anymore. Starting diet TODAY! No carbs. crazy workouts. Whos with me? i think after having a baby u get so excited u lost a lot of weight then u get comfortable & eat how you used & it creeps back up. ok no more tweeting and procrastinating! LOL Glad some of u moms can relate. I'm reading the comments! For real....of to the gym! wish me luck on the dieting...its soooo hard for me!"
It's unclear why Kardashian is suddenly so hung up on her weight, and why she's making it a public battle. As a new mother, she's being entirely too hard on herself, but what makes it more confusing is that on a recent episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," she revealed to her sister Khloe that she's actually lighter than she was before she gave birth to daughter North West.
