Kim Kardashian Reveals She’s Dropped 50 Pounds; Says Negative Press Affected Her

She’s baaaaaaack!

Kim Kardashian hit The Tonight Show With Jay Leno for her first big late-night TV interview since she became mommy to North West. She hit on a few things in the interview — wedding planning, her daughter and of course her recent engagement to Kanye West — but it was her chat about her weight loss that stood out most. She said posting that bathing suit selfie was her big look-at-me-now moment to all of the negative press she got while pregnant. (And she’s dropped 50 pounds due to exercise and the Atkins diet.)

“It really hurt my soul,” she said. “It changed how I am in the public a little bit…There were these stories where I was, like, 200 pounds. I was gaining weight because I was pregnant and it was really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things. And I think people sometimes question, they think I’m out ‘in hiding’ now. No, I just wanted to kinda adjust my life a little bit because why would I subject myself to so much negativity, especially now that I have a daughter? I just didn’t need that energy, I’d rather be in a happy place at home…I’ve definitely tried to live more of a private life because of that, because they were so nasty. Why even go out as much just to put yourself in that position?”
