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.”

Why do people say they lost weight when they have the baby. No the baby came out along with the placenta and fluid etc. you were heavier because you were pregnant

Is it just me or should Kim Kardashian be able to take time for herself to recover and spend time with her baby before she’s obligated to post or reveal herself for some dumb reason. I understand she likes to over post but we all need a break even her to enjoy life’s great blessings. Motherhood affects even the rich and famous for no real reason, come on give her some space! It sounds like pregnancy has been rough for her and truly when it is it sucks.

Baby = 8+ lbs. Placenta & junk =2lbs. SO… she lost 7 lbs in2 weeks. More like the truth. As for gaining 60 lbs? BS. Closer to 90. Thinks we’re blind? Such a liar.

What does this woman, and People for that matter, think we care about every single detail of her life?

There may be comments on all her shit, but it’s all from people who are sick of her. You don’t need to post 5 stories a day about her, People, we know she’s not going anywhere soon, unfortunately.

130 pounds when she got pregnant. BS on that….let’s add 20-30 more. Right before birth she was past two bills. Stop the lies. But folks like them make up crap to make them seem so useful and important to society when in fact they are leeches feeding on mold.
