Seeing a bad picture of yourself is never a good feeling. We battle our own insecurities and deal with body image and Kim Kardashian is no different. At the time the picture was taken, Kim had been recovering from two surgeries on her uterus and had not been to the gym in roughly 12 weeks due to that.
Since her pregnancy difficulties, Kim has had multiple medical complications. When the paparazzi snapped the picture, they began tearing her apart. Kim expressed her frustration over the pictures, saying, "People body shame you and criticize you" when a picture is less than perfect.
The pictures, however, then motivated Kim to get into the best shape of her life. Her new diet and workout regime seem to be influencing trends and setting standards for "body goals." It gives her sisters' revenge bodies a run for their money!
Being under the watchful eye can lead to a lot of pressure for a celebrity's image. Many celebrities turn to plastic surgery in order to keep their youthful and desirable look. It has often been rumored that Kim Kardashian had quite a few plastic surgeries to maintain her curvy figure and beauty features, but Kim has her own methods.
For instance, after having previously mentioned one of her biggest insecurities was her nose, many believe Kim had a nose job done to make it appear smaller. Kim squashed rumors, claiming she embraces her "ethnic nose" and uses contour to help it appear smaller. Which isn't false, she is a makeup icon and her contouring is often flawless.

Giving birth proved to be a difficult and serious situation as well. After suffering from these medical complications, and gaining about 50 pounds from the pregnancy, Kim swore off going out in public until she got her post-baby body back.

Despite the debate of getting work done or not, Kim Kardashian has a disciplined workout routine and strict diet she follows to look the way she does.
