Kim Kardashian couldn't help but share her progress as she works towards losing her baby weight. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who welcomed baby boy Saint West in December, had planned on losing 70 lbs following his birth – and it seems that Kim is well on her way.

The 35-year-old posted a throwback photo on her eponymous website of herself at a clothes fitting, and revealed she has already lost over half of the weight she wants to shed. "Wanting more things to start fitting – 42lbs and 28 to go!" she wrote alongside the snap.

The reality TV queen, who gave birth to Saint in December, has previously explained why she wants to lose 70lbs specifically, taking to Twitter to share her decision with her 42.1 million followers. "I gained 60lbs during my pregnancy but have been an extra 10lbs up for the last few years," she wrote. "So it's time to really get to my goal."

It's not the first time that Kim has opened up about her weight loss goals. The American beauty, who is married to rapper Kanye West, spoke candidly about body image during a livestream with her fans, explaining she wanted to feel "a little bit more like myself".

"I feel like it's still a process of me losing weight and feeling really comfortable," she said. "But I've shown kind of everything until practically my delivery so why not show the whole process of me losing weight and getting back into feeling a little bit more like myself."

Although Kim has kept an active presence on social media, she's kept a relatively low profile when it comes to official appearances and events. However this week the star made an exception as she joined Kanye for the Fashion Los Angeles Awards after show party, looking as sensational as ever.

The mother-of-two turned heads in a black sequinned dress, adding a pop of colour to her eye-catching ensemble with a pair of red heels. The star also showed off her new ombré hairstyle by leaving her tresses down in tousled waves, paired with flawless make-up.
