I don’t like reporting on anything Kim Kardashian but I couldn’t resist when I read this morning about Kim fretting over her 20 pound weight gain. Apparently Kimmy has been tweeting in her own shallow/narcissistic way about the extra poundage. Here are some of her tweets:
“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,” the 33-year-old wrote. “I’m not gonna call it baby weight bc that’s 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?” the tweets continued. “Ughhhh my hips and butt are huge now! They were big to begin with!”
I don’t think Kim realizes that when you age it gets harder to lose weight. She also doesn’t understand that women have children and their bodies change. We’re kinda designed for baby making!
I do feel bad for Kim, I have some empathy for her. Why? Because here is a woman whose life is built on her looks and youth and unfortunately those things fade. She makes money by “modeling” or whatever it is she does, and keeping her body fit. Unfortunately for her in Hollywood, there will always be another younger and prettier woman coming up behind you. Hollywood is fickle and has a short attention span. Which is why you have to have something else besides looks in order to have longevity.
What doesn’t fade is talent, intelligence and the soul. These are things that are absent or Kim is in short supply of. The Dalai Lama says that if you base your happiness on material things then you will never be happy. Once you get that car, that job, that house, then what? You will need something more and more cars, jobs and houses to make you happy.
It feels to me that Kim is struggling to be truly content and feels that if she can get down to a certain weight and look a certain way then she will be happy. No amount of plastic surgery, money or weight loss will bring her fulfillment. She has to turn inwards and I’m just not sure she step away from her own image in the mirror long enough to see that she has beauty inside.
Good luck, Kim. Talk to you after your second child when you will be obsessing about your weight and your hips times ten.
