The 30-year-old covers Cosmopolitan UK's Body issue and opens up about why she started frequenting the gym so much. "When me and Lamar were having issues, I decided to channel my energy into working out," she explains. "If I went out with my girlfriends I would be hounded by paparazzi and made to feel more humiliated. The gym was my only refuge. I could put music on and dance around with my girlfriends and be silly."
Khloe says now that she's lost weight, she still gets body criticism. "Now on my Instagram page people comment saying, 'I liked you better when you were bigger' and I think, 'Thank God I don't live my life for other people because I'd be in a constant tug of war,'" she reveals.
The E! reality star says she's proud she's slimmed down the old-fashioned way: by working out regularly. "I'm not against plastic surgery -- if you want to do a tweak, I'm all for it, but you have to love yourself first because no surgery is going to change your heart," she shares. "It would have been such an easy solution to get liposuction or whatever, but you have to be healthy to maintain that. I've always felt like, 'Wouldn't it be great to accomplish that on your own?'"
Preach, Khloe! We're glad she found a healthy way to deal with her relationship drama and think she always looks amazing whatever size she is.
