Kim Zolciak Weight Loss in Life & Style

Hey there, hot mama! Kim Zolciak is nearly at her pre-baby weight since giving birth to Kash Kade back in August, and the star is showing off her slim-again figure in this week's Life & Style magazine.

Kim Zolciak Weight Loss in Life & Style"I’ve lost 30 pounds ... I’m only 5 to 8 pounds above my weight before I got pregnant," the ex-Real Housewives of Atlanta star says about her figure. Her secret? Aside from eating in moderation (with not much red meat, pork or dairy), Kim says "breast-feeding helped me lose some weight, and I was really busy as soon as I got home with Kash. I went straight into filming my spin-off show, Don’t Be Tardy… [which returns to Bravo in the spring], and I’m sure that helped. I just never sat still!"

She's hoping to drop one more dress size from a four to a size two, and knows that those last pounds will likely be the hardest and that trips to the gym will likely be in her future.
