Kim Kardashian uses slim throwback snap for fitness inspiration

Most women have to work hard to get back to their pre-baby weight after giving birth, and Kim Kardashian is no different.

The reality TV queen, who had her daughter North just over a year ago, shared a throwback photo of herself in a figure-hugging white dress that showed off her slender waist and voluptuous curves.

And she revealed that she was using the old snap of herself from a few years ago as inspiration to keep fit. "Throwback to a few years ago #SkinnyDays #OnTheTreadmillRightNOW" wrote the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.

Kim, 33, has been open about her weight loss struggles after giving birth to her daughter with husband Kanye West in June last year.

"I can honestly say it was the greatest challenge of my life," Kim told Lucky magazine of getting back into shape. The brunette faced that challenge with the Atkins diet, which helped her lose 50 pounds.

At the time, she tweeted: "I've actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it."
