Khloe is ready to speak out after years of hardship. She has struggled with her physical appearance being criticized, mocked and constantly torn down by the media. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has always played the part of the strong, supportive sister despite being the younger of her two famous sibs – Kim and Kourtney. Khloe speaks her mind and doesn’t show that body image issues get her down, but now she is revealing all.
“Growing up, I was always chubby.” Khloe tells People. “My girlfriends were always running around in two-pieces and I never felt comfortable to do that.”
Overshadowed by her friends and her notoriously curvaceous sisters, Khloe had a challenging childhood. Still, she found encouragement through her supportive parents and loving family. It wasn’t until tabloids took over her life that she noticed the difference between her weight and that of her sisters.
“I didn’t realize I was the ‘fat’ sister until I went on TV and the media started saying that about me. Being compared to my sisters was something I was used to. But being compared in such a harsh way … I just thought, ‘Okay, that’s my role. Okay, I’m the fat, funny sister. Who cares?’ I almost let that take ownership of me. I wasn’t fat; I wasn’t obese. But I would let society make me believe that I was.” the 31-year-old explains.
Khloe broke out of this depressing state after years of struggling with her self image, and decided to make a significant change. Sure she has shed pounds, but that is not why she feels so stunning. Going dairy-free and hitting the gym 5 times a week has changed Khloe’s life for the better. For the first time, she feels amazing in her own skin and can feel the impact of her new routine inside and out!
