Kourtney Kardashian shows off her incredible post-baby body
Thursday 03 January 2013
Kourtney Kardashian shows off her post-baby body after losing 44lbs in just five months, admitting ‘it was harder to lose weight the second time around.’
The reality TV star confessed that she put on 45 pounds during her pregnancy with Penelope, who she gave birth to on July 8, but showed off her bikini ready body on the cover of US Weekly, after dropping 44lbs.
However the star, who also has a son Mason, 3, with partner Scott Disick, admits that getting back into shape wasn't easy.
‘It was harder to lose weight the second time around,' she says. 'I gained 45 pounds with Penelope.'
Kourtney, 33, apparently puts her weight loss down to Tracy Anderson’s 90-minute dance-focused workouts and small portion sizes.
After the birth of her first child Mason, Kourtney Kardashian admitted to trying to lose her baby weight in an extreme way in a bid to slim down quickly for an impending photo shoot.
She explained: ‘I was just running down the beach like I always have been lately. And then I just woke up.
‘I've been obsessing about this weight thing a little too much. I'm so embarrassed that I punished my body for a photo shoot.’
This time however, Kourtney Kardashian admitted that she was focusing on what was most important.

‘This time, the focus is really on being a mom and being present, knowing my priorities’ she said.
Meanwhile, her sister Kim Kardashian confirmed that she is expecting a child with rapper boyfriend Kanye West earlier this week.
Kanye shocked fans as he performed on Monday when mid-performance he asked for the music to stop and told the crowd ‘Make noise for my baby mama right here.’
Although sources say that Kanye went against his girlfriend’s wishes to keep their news private, it is reported that Kim burst into tears of happiness whilst sitting with her best friend and mum in the audience.
Kourtney tweeted this week: 'Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!'
The full interview with Kourtney Kardashian is in the new issue of Us Weekly on newsstands Friday.
