99.9% of the time, breakups suck. Even if you are the one that ends it, it can be torture. Tears, sleepless nights and comfort eating all spell misery for your waistline. But it is totally possible to turn pain and tragedy around into something entirely positive.
If there is someone who knows all about this struggle, it is Khloe Kardashian. After breaking up with her husband Lamar Odom, Kardashian turned her pain into a very serious gain. Her philosophy is simple: show them what they are missing. "It's a little silly but true," she says. "There is literally no downfall to working out your blues in the gym! You'll feel better, and the by-product will be a fierce bod that's bound to make your ex do a double-take."
And a fierce bod is exactly what she got!

But Khloe knows that you can't just pretty up the outside, you need to heal the inside too. "The most important thing is to be honest with yourself. You need to find a way to genuinely be OK with the fact that things didn't work out, and know that time heals all," she said. "Nothing lasts forever - that's the good news and the bad news! Focus on the positive and don't fake it."
This is advice she has attempted to impart to her younger brother, Rob. Since breaking up with singer, Rita Ora, 3 years ago, Rob has gained over 100 pounds and been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. While Rob has the full support of his family, it is clear to see that he is still struggling. But hopefully he will be able to learn a thing or two out of Khloe's playbook.

Revenge bodies are very real. If you feel slighted by your ex, transforming yourself and showing them how foxy you are can be all you need to get going. Even if you aren't someone who is motivated by revenge and you already know that your ex knows what s/he is missing, you can use your breakup to your advantage. If you don't want to do it to show
them, do it for
you. Do it because it will make you feel better. When your body is healthy, your mind and spirit can be healthy too. The reality is painful and it is difficult, but like Khloe says, you have to be okay with it. Sweat out your sadness. Build your strength physically and emotionally. After that, whatever happens is a bonus. If you invite positive change into your life, you will attract positive experiences.
