Sitting down for season two of Revenge Body, the 33-year-old reflected on past comments urging her to slim down from the Kar-Jenner clan in order to help better their public image. “[They said] ‘Khloé, you got to lose weight 'cause you’re really hurting the brand,’” she remembered. The mom-to-be continued, “I’m a huge believer of it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. I understand that was coming from my management side of my family, but it does hurt.” Kardashian has noticeably dropped weight since her 2013 split from ex-husband, Lamar Odom—a transformation she credits to the emotional “outlet” of working out. Pregnant Khloé Kardashian Says She Won't Wear Maternity Clothes—at Least for Now “My whole fitness transformation stemmed from my divorce. I really needed an outlet for my emotions,” the pregnant star —who has kept up her grueling workouts during her journey to motherhood—explained in a teaser trailer for her show. “I started working out and the clarity that I received from that was so needed and so therapeutic, and as I by-product I started losing weight," she added. "I saw a bit of definition there and thought, ‘Okay, I'll try and keep this up.’” No matter her size, Khloé's confidence is contagious!
