Khloe Kardashian might be loving her recent body transformation, but that doesn’t mean she’s still immune to body confidence issues.
Revealing that even with her gym-honed physique, she still has her off days, Khloe wrote on her website: ‘Honestly, sometimes I feel a lot of pressure to keep the body I’ve worked so hard to achieve.
‘Despite all my hard work in the gym, even now I have days where I might be feeling fat or frumpy (I think all women have these feelings).’
She added: ‘I think people will immediately compare me to my Complex cover and start judging me again.’
The 31-year-old star also admitted that she actually thought she was beautiful ‘bigger’, and that her body insecurities only stemmed from the public’s opinion.
‘I work out to look a certain way and feel a certain way but I do it for myself’, she added. ‘I did it on MY terms. It’s for my self esteem and I feel so confident and proud of my achievements right now.’
Revealing just how many pounds she’s shed thanks to her gruelling Gunnar Peterson regime, the Kardashian sister said: ‘When I’m in L.A., I go hard and I’ve lost like, 35 pounds. I don’t really weigh myself.’
Speaking to Nova 96.9 FM, Khloe admitted that her gym workouts have now become a bit of an obsession.
‘It’s like, I know how I want to feel in clothes,’ she said. ‘And it does become addicting – once you start losing weight and seeing results, you’re like, ‘I wanna see more!'”

There’s no denying Khloe is looking totally fabulous right now, after her steamy shoot for Complex magazine hit the headlines for its pure, unadulterated hotness.
The reality TV star has been stepping up her fitness game in recent months, and the results are clear to see.
Khloe poses on the cover of Complex magazine working a sheer panelled Minimal Animale bodysuit as she sticks her world famous derriere out to the camera. A cover line underneath reads: ‘Let’s get physical.’
All wet, swept-back locks, statement gold jewellery and dewy, tanned skin, Khloe looks at her sassiest (and sexiest) best, and she’s not afraid to talk about it.
Sharing an untouched photo from the shoot on her Instagram account, that shows the reality TV star squatting with a dumbbell in a high-leg Adidas bodysuit, Khloe wrote: ‘This one is for all the troll haters out there that cannot seem to give me an ounce of credit for my daily workouts!’
‘The image on the left is an unretouched photo from the actual camera on the day of the shoot. The image on the right is the retouched photo. Yes skin is smooth and shadows are removed but I still think I look good on the left image. Flaws and all.’ Amen, honey. You look BANGING.
And there’s one woman to thank for contributing to Khloe’s sexy makeover. Because supportive sister Kim took it upon herself to be creative director of the shoot.
According to the mag, Kim visited the set to lend her styling tips and, er, help to sex-up Khloe a little more…
Complex writes of Kim’s visit: ‘Kim’s style is very hands-on. She halts a shot, and positions the KUWTK camera crew in front of Khloé, who’s spread-eagle in a white Moschino bra and high-waisted black spanx shorts. “Can we wet the nipples more? Can I do this?” Kim shuffles over, grabs a bottle of water, and douses Khloé’s already wet body, soaking her white bra.’ Well, she is a pro at this whole thing…
Khloe also gave a shout-out to her sister after the shoot surfaced. ‘I have been procrastinating it because I was too scared to do the shoot! But Kimberly made me and had more confidence in me then I had myself!! I love you Keeks!’ she wrote.
Amongst the high-waisted Lycra shorts and teeny bra tops selected by stylist Monica Rosehad, the interview Khloe gave was actually SO honest, in which she discussed Kylie and Tyga, Kim and Kanye and ex-husband Lamar.
On the criticisms over Kylie and Tyga’s relationship, Khloe defended the age-gap couple in her VERY blunt way. ‘I think at 16 I was probably f***ing someone that was in their 20s, for sure’, she said.
‘I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, “Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?” and have her say, “Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s,” or “Going to prom.” That’s not what Kylie does.’
‘Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.’
And Khloe also said some seriously sweet things about Kim and hubby Kanye (it’s clear she’s a big fan).
‘Kim being married to Kanye is a completely different Kim’, Khloe said. ‘Kim is so at peace with herself. At my own wedding, I was so calm. At the Humps’ [Kris Humphries] wedding Kim was crazy. Then I saw her at her wedding to who I always said should be her husband, and she was so calm. No one else in the world could have the conversations that those two have.’
We can only imagine..
And when it comes to her ex-husband Lamar Odom, Khloe admits that she’s not sure those feelings will ever go away. ‘I talk to Lamar as often as I can, which is inconsistent, but not on my terms’, she admitted. ‘I miss him every day.’
Khloe, please never stop being you. Most. Honest. Interview. Ever.
