Kailyn gave fans a glimpse at her progress while posing for a snap on her Instagram Stories.
The young mom wore a mustard yellow crop top sweater with black drawstring sweatpants exposing part of her bare belly.
Her blonde hair was styled in loose waves as she held her phone up to block her face.
She included the text: “Looking for hair & MU in ATL Dec 6-9th. This is paid NOT promo.,” along with a pop-up box for replies.
Kailyn has been open about her insecurites surrounding her body, detailing her struggles to manage her weight.
Back in September, the reality star updated fans on her weight loss journey in a video she shared to her Instagram Stories.
“So for those of you guys who have been following my PCOS journey, I want to give you guys a little update,” she began.
“Yesterday, I had my annual visit with my GYN, which is obviously TMI for Instagram, but here we are.
“But I did check my weight compared to my last annual, and I was down 12 lbs.
“And I was kind of excited about it because I feel like that was such a small win. But it was a win nonetheless.”
Kail went on that she didn’t agree with her doctor’s recommendation to use a birth control pill to help with her PCOS.
She went on: “I did start Ovasitoul, which I think is the reason I started losing weight. I don’t know for sure, but that’s my opinion…
“But I kind of just feel like at a loss cause I don’t think that people understand. I already have an unhealthy relationship with food and then not being able to lose weight on top of it.”
Kailyn previously talked about her desire to lose weight on her Baby Mamas, No Drama podcast: “Weight loss surgery or not… I feel like when I don’t feel my best, I don’t even try to look good… There were multiple seasons of the show where I literally rolled out of bed… When you just don’t feel your best you just don’t want to get ready.”
She went on: “I need to drop some serious weight. I stopped doing all my appointments for the weight loss surgery…”
The mom shared she stopped the surgery plans and continued: “But I’ve also just not shown up to appointments. So I don’t think they would even consider me back if I wanted to.
“I need to lose the weight, but I feel like you when you backed out the first time where you were like, I’ve got to do this on my own… I have a little double chin right here, but I’m going to work on it.”
Kailyn previously underwent a full mommy makeover that consisted of liposuction in the neck, a tummy tuck, and a Brazilian butt lift.
But since her surgeries, Kailyn has admitted that her increased weight has been triggered by her polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
The mom-of-four has since brought up her body frustrations several times, admitting that she’s had trouble finding clothing to fit her body.
“I just need someone who is familiar with curvy bodies. I just don’t know how to dress at this point,” she told fans prior to a work trip last month.
“I’m like in the weird stages of losing weight but still curvy. I just want cute outfits that are flattering to me.
“I’m not having any luck. So if you know anybody, send them my way,” Kailyn requested.
Just days ago, the Teen Mom star communicated with her followers how uncomfortable she feels with her breast size, explaining her hopes to get a breast reduction.
“It’s hard to find clothes that are flattering because my boobs make me look bigger than I am,” she told a fan curious about her decision.
The 29-year-old first revealed her breast reduction plans back in February after one person decided to ask the TV star about her “bra size.”
Kailyn responded: “36DDD but planning a breast reduction,” as she also added a fingers crossed emoji.
‘NOT HAPPY WITH MYSELF’
The Teen Mom 2 star had discussed her image issues with body positivity advocate, Married At First Sight star Jamie Otis, on an earlier episode of her Coffee Convos podcast.
Kailyn explained: “I’m in a place right now where I don’t want to go see people because I’m not happy with myself.
“Right now I’m at the highest weight I’ve ever been and I’m not happy with myself. My clothes fit differently. I hate it.
“Half of my brain is like, ‘Go get fit’ – I’m going to the gym every day – and the other half of me is like, ‘I’m almost 30, just embrace your body, just be OK with it.'”
She continued: “I am [happy with her body] on some days. On other days I’m like, ‘Holy s**t, I hate my body.’
“In 2016 I was at the healthiest I’ve ever been, I worked out, I had cosmetic surgery… I maintained it [her weight] for the entire year until I got pregnant.
“I was so happy. But now I can’t get the weight off to save my life. I don’t know what’s going on.”
