After weighing "almost 140 forever," Kim Kardashian West says she's dropped down to 116 lbs. - and now she's sharing more about how she got there.

The reality star, 37, posted a glimpse of her workout to her Instagram story on Saturday. She focused on her legs, and shared part of the rigorous routine: four sets of 15 front squats, four sets of 20 kettlebell swings (she uses a 30-lb. weight) and four sets of 30 hip thrusts.

In another video, the mom of three-North, 5, Saint, 2, and Chicago, 7 months-said her own mom, Kris Jenner, was asking for tips. "@krisjenner over here trying to steal my food plan & trainer" Kardashian West captioned the video with the crying-laughing emoji. She also shared that her "abs these days … look good" in a selfie style video. (Related: Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Planning On Baby Number Four?)

To tone up, the Kimoji creator has been working with personal trainer and former bodybuilder Melissa Alcantara.

"I work out about an hour-and-a-half every single day, heavyweights," she told E! News. I don't do a lot of cardio. But honestly, like even my mom pulled me aside maybe a week ago and pulls me in a closet and is like, 'What are you doing?' She says, 'I don't care what, I just need to know.' I've been working out really hardcore with a bodybuilder for one year. September is our one-year anniversary." (Related: Kim Kardashian Is Back to Her Pre-Baby Weight, Here's How)

She added, "I didn't see results right away, but when you stick with something and you're consistent, you will. So, I love it."

Dropping the weight has also required changes to Kardashian West's diet. The main change? Cutting back on sugar and trying to eat healthier in general.

"I don't really eat sugar the way that I used to. It doesn't really do it for me," she said. "I've kind of been trained to just eat a lot healthier than I used to. I used to just eat anything and everything and I loved it…So I really do control that now…I don't want to ruin it by just stuffing my face." (Related: The 10 Best Diet Programs For Every Goal)

According to Alcantara, they train together six days a week at 6 a.m., rotating through specific body parts: shoulders, biceps/triceps, and chest/back, as well as three days devoted to legs. They also do some cardio - either short bursts of high intensity or longer, low-intensity walks.

"She loves and hates leg days," Alcantara said in an exclusive interview with People. "But she's committed! She knows what it takes, but it's also really grueling. It's heavy, it's killer, but she'll be like, 'Alright, let's do it!' She's a workhorse."

It's been a year since my husband practically threw me away like GARBAGE for being too fat and disgusting, as he called me.And that’s when I decided I’d had enough… No matter what it took I was going to look great! The first thing I wanted to do was to get rid of cellulite. After much trial and error, I finally found a program that taught me the correct body movements to stimulate all 90 muscles of my lower body and the right way to optimize my hormones through nutrient balance. The end result is astonishing. Cellulite is gone.The firmness and tightness of my body is something I've never felt before.I feel proud of myself. And so can you...

I have always been what most would consider a “big girl”. In January 2018, I weighed 180 lbs, which is quite overweight for a woman my height. I wasn’t always this weight though. In my teenage years, I weighed only 140 pounds and I felt much healthier and happier. I strived desperately over the years to get back to this weight. But with a stressful and busy work life, I struggled... continue here https://bit.ly/mydietplantoday

Hi! Once you understand how your body works then it becomes a lot easier to lose weight. The problem is many people go around trying a million different things that all conflict with each other and when they don’t see the results that they want they think that it is impossible to lose weight. This famous program has been studied over the years by third parties and proven to be the real deal. The program is all about losing weight by correctly practicing intermittent fasting, a proven method of weight loss. I have tried it myself and the results were just what I needed.
