Khloé Kardashian is opening up about the relationship she had with her weight after splitting from Lamar Odom.
As you know, the socialite and former basketball player were married from 2009-2016, and throughout their relationship (and after) the 38-year-old went through a lot of changes and has been candid about her weight loss journey. While speaking with InStyle Friday, The Kardashians star recalled her “unhealthy” habits:
“When I first started [working out], I cared so much. Maybe [it’s] just being younger. I think you care about the scale. The scale Fs with you. I don’t even look at a scale anymore. I think it’s really unhealthy. I haven’t in years. They’re just numbers.”
Continuing, she concluded she doesn’t look at the scale because her happiness doesn’t have anything to do with a number:
“I go off of how confident I feel in myself. I’m all about [doing] what’s best for me, mind, body, soul. There is no one size fits all.”
While thinking back to her divorce from Lamar, the mother of two said the breakup is what pushed her to working out at the gym:
“The reason why I turned to the gym was actually through my divorce. I didn’t really know what to do. Of course, in the beginning, you [have to] get over that hump of it being really hard and something so new for you. But I felt so accomplished. I’m sort of a control freak, but in life we can’t control everything. But the gym, what I put in it, I know I’m going to get out of it. And being a control freak — I’m proud of it — I love that I have that control.”
Khloé continued on to tell the outlet that going to the gym has become a form of therapy for her:
“If I’m having a really bad day, I go to the gym. I might not want to go to the gym, but I go and right when I’m done, I feel so much lighter. I think you have to listen to your body for sure, but no one’s going to push you. So you do have to listen to yourself and know when you’re really tired versus making excuses. The beginning is the hardest — I think the first three weeks are the biggest challenge. And then, once you get over that, I do feel like everyone finds a rhythm.”
A lot of people find solace with hobbies and working out, it’s great to hear she found her thing! Have U ever made big changes after a breakup like Khloé, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below).
