Tasking to Instagram on Saturday, the reality TV star posted a daring picture of her waistline with a shout-out to fitness guru, Melissa Alcantara..
She raised eyebrows with unfiltered beach pictures, last summer.
Now, one year on from all the drama, Kim Kardashian is celebrating her bikini body – and crediting a famed personal trainer with its transformation.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the reality TV star posted a daring picture of her waistline with a reference to fitness guru Melissa Alcantara, who’s been coaching the 37-year-old for more than 12 months.
“Shout out to my trainer @fitgurlmel who really changed my body,” she wrote alongside a snap of her thong-clad thighs.
She told her 110 million followers that the spotter’s guidance has helped shift the dreaded cellulite which made headlines in 2017.
“When I wasn’t happy with what I saw back in the mirror I spent a whole year training so hard 5 or 6 days a week putting in a lot of work and changed the way that I eat,” Kim added.
“There’s such a noticeable difference. I am firm and less cellulite and so much more confident.
“SO THANK YOU for waking up at 5am to do crazy body building workouts & sprints that I hate & putting me on to this lifestyle.”
Naturally, the post was ‘liked’ more than 1,780,000 times in just a few hours and sparked supportive comments from fans.
Kim then capped the post with a photo of herself with sister Kourtney as they soaked up the sun in Turks And Caicos.
Carefully posing for the camera, the image is a far cry from the paparazzi shots which caught Kim off guard on holiday in Mexico last summer.
Showing her with stretch marks and dimpled skin, she was subsequently scolded by body-shamers – yet simultaneously praised by the likes of Susanna Reid, who defended her natural appearance.
Kim has previously spoken openly about her body, telling Shape magazine: “I have cellulite, just like almost every other woman on the planet. And just because I feel secure with my body doesn’t mean I think cellulite is cute!
“It will always be an issue for me. So let’s just say it’s a work in progress.”
