Kim Kardashian West is determined to get back to her pre-baby weight after welcoming her second child Saint.

In a recent livestream on her app and website Monday night, the new mom opened up about her pregnancy — specifically about her weight — while chatting with Caitlyn Jenner, who came over to ex Kris Jenner‘s house where the Wests have been temporarily staying.

Kardashian West, 35, did not make an on-camera appearance during the broadcast, but did divulge details about her difficulties to shed the 60 lbs. she gained.

“This feels like a really hard recovery but we will get through it. Everyone does it,” the mother of two told Jenner, who was dressed in a black jacket, LBD and knee-high boots.

Kanye West‘s wife revealed that she was 130 lbs. when she got pregnant with Saint and was 190 lbs. at the end. With the help of breastfeeding and a healthier diet, she’s down 17 lbs. so far.

Jenner complimented her weight loss adding, “You are looking much better,” as Kardasian West responded, “I am feeling much better.”

The mother of two has set her sights on losing 70 lbs. to reach her ideal weight of 120 lbs, sharing that she was 124 lbs. when she got married in May.


Fans have noticed that Kardashian West’s lack of posting selfies and photos of herself post-baby, and the reality star is well aware of it. She assured her viewers that she will “reveal” herself very soon, but noted how she has been focusing on herself these days.

“It’s not even about how I look… no makeup and sweats. I know I have been on social media a little bit, but I wanted this time to not have to care or post something about myself,” she said.

In addition, Kardashian West has been feeling “really healthy and good” since consuming her placenta.

“I’m having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form,” she wrote in a blog post, explaining how she’s avoiding postpartum depression. “I had great results and felt so energized. Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy.”
