Kim Kardashian isn’t just hard at work on her figure—she’s also hard at work on a book.
The reality TV star is planning to release a diary all about her post-baby weight-loss that’ll include intimate, never-before-seen images following her from her daughter North West’s delivery to her current state.
Kim, like her boyfriend Kanye West, has been wary of the paparazzi and media lately, so the idea of her taking some kind of creative control of how her image is spun in the press appeals to her.
“[Kim and Kanye] are always thinking about the brand and how to make it bigger and better, so Kim is loving the idea of a post-baby body visual diary showing her weight-loss,” a source told Yahoo! omg. “She knows there are plenty of pap photos of her out there, but only she has the really personal ones that no one can get close enough to take of her.”
The project doesn’t have a publisher yet, but Kim’s confident that because of the public’s interest, it’ll get picked up.
News of this book sheds some light into why Kim hasn’t been posting as many—nearly any—photos of herself on Instagram or Twitter since the summer.
“Kim has taken daily photos of herself as she slims down,” the source added, “and they’re on her phone and printed out in her private dressing room in order of weight loss.”
This self-chronicling of her figure, along with a mood board of celebrity beach bods fuels the project.
“She also has a full size photo of a few Hollywood bikini bodies which she aspires to and is using them as a margin of how much weight she wants to lose.”
“Kim looks at photos of herself from a few weeks ago and is beyond excited that she’s slimming down all the time,” continued the source. “The visual spur of her photos arranged on her wall have been a huge inspiration.”
