Khloe Kardashian is Giving Us a Reason to Head to the Gym

We’ve all watched the Kardashian family transform throughout the years, but Khloe just took it to a whole new level. No, we’re not talking about yet another new hair color‚ but instead, an entire lifestyle change. Having been ridiculed in the past for her weight, she decided to commit to a healthier life. Khloe shared this before and after selfie on her Instagram showing off her hot new bod with an incredibly inspiring caption that we can totally get behind. We think she looks beautiful in both pictures—and we’re glad that her message isn’t about losing weight for vanity’s sake, but rather, about staying strong and healthy. She also gave us a reminder that “fitness is a long journey,” something we tend to forget when we get discouraged and give up.


Looking back at pictures of myself I didn’t realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don’t think I would consider myself fat back then. Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever. I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week. We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all. Start small so you don’t get discouraged and give up. Remember it is all about consistency. There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results. Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul. We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone. Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. dedication and tenacity.
