Now Kim Kardashian Is Apparently So Depressed About Her Baby Weight She Isn’t Leaving the House

Eye Roll 10

Kim KardashainSigh. You really aren't going to believe this nasty little rumor. Apparently Kim Kardashian is ashamed of her post-baby body and refuses to leave the house because she's still carrying around a few extra pounds -- two weeks after welcoming baby North West.

You know, because if she hasn't been spotted out shopping in L.A., going to lunch with Kourtney and the kids, or strolling with the baby near her mom's home (where she's currently shacking up), then she must be upset over the fact that she's not quite back in her skinny jeans yet.

(Is this the biggest bunch of nonsense you've ever heard or what?)

OMG. Again -- it's only been two weeks since Kim gave birth. Should we honestly expect her to go right back to her regular routine like a major life change hasn't just occurred? Because that's just not realistic for any new mom -- celebrity or not.

After I had my son, it was closer to three weeks postpartum before I mustered up the courage to venture out of the house. Want to know where I went? To the drive-thru mailbox at the post office to send out a few bills. Didn't even get out of the car -- and the baby cried the entire way there and back. (And so did I.)

It was at least another week or two after that first outing before I actually took the baby out of the car and entered a store. I was terrified that he might start fussing, need a diaper change, or that he'd catch some God-awful disease since his immune system wasn't built up yet. On top of that, my daily routine was so chaotic, I usually didn't make it downstairs until 1 p.m. -- which made getting out of the house almost impossible.

And even though she likely has a ton of people (family and hired staff) helping her out, Kim is still probably having a tough time adjusting to life with a newborn, and she just isn't ready to stray too far from home yet.

It doesn't mean she's embarrassed or ashamed of the way she looks -- it simply means she's a mom who is devoted to her child and getting used to the whole parenting thing.

That being said, can we please give her a break already?

How long did it take you to leave the house after having a baby?

aww poor thing, she just realized she's just like the rest of us and her body doesn't pop back into shape as soon as baby comes out. 

I was out and about right away, I didn't care how my body looked to others, I knew I just had a baby.

Unfortunately I had no choice..when my son was 3 weeks old we not only had to travel to my husband's Basic/AIT graduation but we also moved halfway across the country (yikes).

I had a c-section, and we went out to eat on the way home from the hospital. Is it a thing to not leave the house for weeks and weeks? How can people stand that?!!!
I'm not a Kardashian fan, but I feel bad for her. She is under enormous pressure right now. People are basically laughing, because they think she will stay "fat." It's terrible.

I didn't leave the house except to take my little one to the drs. It wasn't about my weight though. I was just scared to bring the baby out. First of all it was in the dead of winter when he was born, and secondly he was premature and only 4 pounds 6 ounces when he came home. The first time I brought him in public was his baptism. He was 2 months old and still only 7 pounds and I was terrified. I will admit though I thought I was going to bounce right back into shape after I had him. I was super young and dumb lol. It took about 5-6 months to lose most of it. But I also wasn't really worried about it to the point where I was working out all the time, so I'm sure she will lose it much faster.

At least this site has common sense. Another week of bullcrap lies made up by the blogs to keep people clicking and making negative, nasty comments, no one has heard one formal word from Kim or Kanye since the birth of their child, all these made up stories and supposed sources are all bogus, but they know they have an audience of crazies that will believe everything thy hear. SAD

I was out and about within 2 weeks of having my son. I was tired of being cooped up in the damn house. My mother told me that in order to have everything go back to normal I needed to wear a tummy control girdle and breastfeed. It worked like a fucking charm!

Not a fan of the Kardashian family, but I feel for Kim. I'm sure she's overwhelmed and just realizing those pounds aren't just going to dissapear after childbirth, but something you need to work at. It took her 9 months to get there, she needs to take her time getting back to her pre-pregnancy body. I hope the rumors about her having extensive body sculpting surgery are untrue. She'll be back in shape in no time. I know it's work....I lost 130 pounds over a 5 year period. Best wishes Kim! And go ahead and take that sweet little Nori out for a stroll! The fresh ari would do you both good!

Actually, I hear she is really motivated to lose weight. Best of luck to her. When I was trying to lose fat I had to control my carb intake. If you cleanse your body of carbs then it will start to burn its own stored fat. To do this I completed the '21-Day Sugar Detox' cleanse. I have lost my sugar cravings and am getting leaner everyday. If you’re interested read this review I found.

Kim needs to cease wearing tent dresses and tops. She ought to wear fitted dresses with jackets or tank tops with jacket and jeans or slacks. Tunic suits, etc.
