Kim Kardashian may have just turned 39, but she’s got the big 4-0 on the mind. The reality star revealed she’s gained 18 pounds in the last year but has a plan to get back into shape before her milestone birthday! “OK, so we’re doing a night workout before my dinner, which I never do with this one, but I figured we have to get into it at some point,” Kim explained on her Instagram story as she hit the gym with her trainer Melissa Alcantara. “And yeah, I mean, sometimes we all off and sometimes you really gotta get it together and this is one of my fallen off times where I am, I think, 18 pounds up from what I was about a year ago, a year and a half ago.”

While Kim has been looking sexier than ever lately — flaunting her body in numerous Halloween costumes and rocking a super slinky black skirt at an Ulta appearance — she admitted that she’s ready to shed some pounds. “To feel good, I just want to get like a really good goal weight and so that means working out at all costs,” she continued. The mom-of-four revealed that she gained the extra weight due to eating, which is something almost everyone can related to! “It’s my eating. I work out but it’s like my eating. But [my trainer] Melissa and I have a major goal for by the time I’m 40.” Given Kim’s hectic lifestyle balancing family, work, and tons of travel, it’s totally understandable that eating healthy 24/7 isn’t easy — but we guess this means she’ll be skipping the Christmas dessert table?

Kim also confirmed she weighed 119 pounds prior to her 18 pounds weight gain, leading her family — including mom Kris Jenner — to have concerns that perhaps she slimmed down a little too much. At the time, she dropped 20 pounds to get to that number by working out six days a week for an entire year. Now, that’s dedication!

Regardless of how she feels about her weight, the KUWTK star looked absolutely incredible in a barely-there bikini top in her Legally Blonde inspired Halloween video that showed off her toned arms and tummy on Oct. 31. She’s often credited shape wear — including her own line Skims — for her perfect figure, but either way, we think she looks amazing!
