Talk about body goals! Since
Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered in 2007, Khloé Kardashian has managed to change her body time and time again, inspiring fans and helping to spread a healthy message.
Thanks to a growing dedication to fitness and eating well, the younger sister of
Kim and Kourtney managed to kick her habit of yo-yo dieting — and the cycle of weight loss and weight gain that went with it. And Khloe’s dedication to an active lifestyle has helped her not just slim down, but become physically strong, mentally balanced and all-around healthier too — even as she feared infertility, struggled to conceive a baby and went through a difficult divorce from Lamar Odom.
But by the time the
Strong Looks Better Naked author welcomed her daughter, True, in April 2018 (with ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson), her workout sessions and healthy diet had become such a part of her mindset and daily habits, that she was able to slim down at the rate she wanted — and keep off her post-baby weight.
“I’m still active, I still work out, but I’m not like ‘I have to lose 50 pounds in two months’ or whatever those expectations are,” the
Revenge Body host told Us Weekly in September 2018. “It’s very normal to lose weight at a slow process. For me, that’s how I lost all my weight before and how it stayed off. I used to fluctuate weight because I would try all these diet fads and then I would gain the weight right back. I would always yo-yo. When I lost my weight and kept it off, it’s when I lost it slowly. I know that expression ‘the turtle wins the race’, ’cause now I know, OK, let me lose it in a healthy way’ so I keep it off, ’cause the last thing I want to do is yo-yo again in my life.”
After all of her ups and downs with Thompson, it seems her new “revenge” may be to continue feeling her best. Scroll through to see Khloé’s amazing transformation!
New to the Scene
When Khloé Kardashian and her family let viewers into their household for a new E! reality show in 2007, the “tough skinned” Kardashian had no idea how mean some viewers and online critics would be—instantly billing her as “the fat sister.” “It’s like being brain-washed: You think, ‘Do I have a distorted body image and think I’m not as big as I am?'” she has said.

Khloé showed off her curves in an emerald green dress in 2008, but admits that her weight was always a battle. “As a girl, you have baby fat,” she explained. During her parents’ divorce in 1991, she said, “My brother [Rob] and I were always heavy. They gave us food to keep us company. All we did was eat crap.”
Instant life in the spotlight was hard for the
Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who says that constantly being compared to her older (and petite) sisters, Kim and Kourtney, was difficult. “The fabulous Kardashian sisters were not an easy act to follow … I just didn’t look like them,” the star, here in March 2008, wrote in their book, Kardashian Konfidential.

Debuting a slimmer figure in a tight purple frock in 2009, Khloé revealed she did it by using the weight loss program QuickTrim (all three Kardashian sisters were spokeswomen for the product). “QuickTrim is seriously amazing and I swear it works!!!” she wrote in a blogpost.
In 2010, the reality star revealed a healthier frame, sporting a striped maxi dress at an event. The always-honest Kardashian was upfront about her yo-yo dieting with fans. “If I can make other people feel good about their ups and downs in weight, then I want to be that person,” she told
Taking a break from QuickTrim, Khloé stepped out in 2011 with a more toned bod, largely due to upping her exercise regimen—doing 30 minutes of cardio daily, boxing, hiking, and even using a sauna suit to work out. “It’s like a trash bag that makes you sweat,” she told
Us at the time. Her goal? To be bikini ready! “Most girls in their 20s get to be in bikinis around their friends,” she explained. “I was never that girl.”

Following their wedding in 2009, NBA basketball player Lamar Odom was always a constant support through her weight struggles. “Lamar tells me he loves my body and I’m beautiful multiple times a day,” Khloé, pictured with Odom IN L.A. in 2012, has shared. “I’ve never had that before: Someone saying, ‘Without makeup, without clothes, you’re stunning.’ He loves my body and loves that womanly shape.”
She Has the X Factor
Khloé noticeably shed pounds while she was hosting
The X Factor in fall 2012 alongside Mario Lopez, thanks to boxing classes and changing her eating habits. “I could have done a lot of unhealthy things to lose weight, and I’m proud for all the criticism I’ve taken and haven’t done that,” she has said.
Sexy in Red
By mid-2012, Khloé was feeling sexy enough to flaunt her curves in a leg-bearing red dress—haters be damned. “I’m a size 6/8,” she told Us Weekly in the past. “If I weren’t in Hollywood world, no one would ever say I was fat.”
Keeping Her Booty
Despite working out more, Khloé revealed that she wasn’t looking to lose her infamous backside. “Girls tell me and my sisters all the time, ‘We love your booties,'” she told
Cosmopolitan in March 2013. “Just yesterday a really thin stylist said to me, ‘I wish I had your booty. I don’t have one.'” She was all smiles March 23 on the Kids’ Choice Awards’ carpet, wearing a curve-hugging white mini dress.
Skinny (Leather) Jeans
Showing off her fit frame March 28, 2013 in a pair of blue leather jeans and a black blazer, Khloé told
Us about her intense exercise sessions that she completes with a personal trainer. “I love to box!” she said. “I’m good at it! Boxing keeps me entertained—and you just shed weight.”
Stepping out on May 22, 2013 in a red-and-white stripped dress, the 5-foot-10 star was looking better than ever, showing off her 20-pound weight loss. When a few online commenters attacked her, suggesting she lost the weight via plastic surgery, Khloé fought back, tweeting, “People LOVE to hate. I have worked really hard to be healthy and I am proud of my body! It’s all ME! I did it the healthy LONG way. Please don’t discredit my hard, long work. Don’t hate because you couldn’t do it.”
How She Did It
Wearing a sexy LBD dress to an interview on
Watch What Happens Live on May 28, 2013 Khloé talked more about her new eating plan. “It is consistency,” she told Andy Cohen. “I have been working out at least four days a week. I eat better in moderation. I still have to eat, I love food. It’s just eating in moderation, it’s lifestyle changes.”

Finding Body Peace
It’s taken a bit of time, but Khloé says she’s finally at a place where she’s happy with her curvy-licious bod, showing it off in a colorful striped dress to a
TODAY appearance on May 29, 2013. “I’m proud of my body,” she wrote in a blogpost. “My body weight will always be something that I’ll struggle with for the rest of my life, but I’m finally in a good place and learning to love me for me, and not somebody else’s standards.”
Flaunting her toned legs in a tight white dress in June 9, 2013, the star shined on the red carpet.
Ready for Summer
Wearing turquoise-colored Giuseppe Zanotti heels, Intermix leather shorts, a sheer button-up Equipment blouse, Kardashian showed off her fit figure and toned legs at an event promoting Kardashian Sun Kissed self-tanner on June 19, 2013.
Khloé showed her rocking bod on June 25, 2013, wearing an all-black ensemble while attending an event. Wearing dark silver heels, black leather pants, a black tank and a black blazer, the star looked totally fierce—and is feeling more confident than ever. “Stop comparing ur life 2any1 else’s,” she tweeted the day before. “This will only hold u back from ur true potential and inner blissful joy. Be in love with u.”
Captain of Her Own Ship
At the end of 2013, Khloé ended her four-year marriage to Odom amidst rumors of drug use and cheating. By the year’s end, she had lost 30 pounds—telling
British Cosmopolitan, “I’m feeling good. I’ve worked very hard on my body so I think now I can sex it up a little!” Kardashian made good on her promise in March 2014, showing off her sexy curves in a one-piece bathing suit and a sailor cap on a yacht for an Instagram photo.

Upfront and Candid
Khloé, here, at the NBC Universal Upfronts in NYC in May 2013, is open about the hard work that goes into maintaining her healthy figure, regularly sharing photos of her workouts. “I hate not being consistent in the gym,” she captioned a pair of photos of herself lifting weights in May 2014. “Consistency is key when it comes to my body. Thank you Mr Gym for being my therapy… Mind, Body and Soul.”
On location shooting the upcoming spin-off
Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons at the beach on June 19, 2014, Khloé’s physique looked just right in ripped denim shorts, a black one-piece swimsuit and an unbuttoned denim shirt. “If I ate better, I would lose weight faster, but I don’t want to,” she told Cosmopolitan Australia. “I work out really hard so I can have my champagne and that part of life. I’d rather take longer to lose weight, but have fun doing it.”
Khloé showed off her fit physique in a tight white ensemble at the Opening Ceremony and Calvin Klein Jeans’ celebration launch of the #mycalvins collection in L.A. on April 23, 2015.

Getting Leggy With It
She works hard for those stems she showed off on May 16, 2016! Two months before this pic was snapped, Khloe told
Us a climbing machine was her favorite workout for legs and butt: “At the gym they have the rotating stairs, it’s a StairMaster, but instead of one up and down it’s the rotating stairs. It just does your ass and your legs and if you lean on the bar, it’s not doing the same as if you stand up it does your core,” she said. “It’s so great. At 15 minutes, I’m literally panting like a dog but you just try, you turn on a great TV show and you try to distract yourself.”

Sexy in Citrus
Khloe never looked slimmer than she did at the House of CB flagship store launch on June 14, 2016 in a fitted bright orange midi-dress. “I cut out dairy and when I did I lost 11 pounds instantly,” the reality star told Us in March. “I’m not a diet person, but I believe in taking dairy out completely. I won’t have real milk, I have almond milk, and I’ve never missed it. Cheese is the only thing that’s my struggle.”

Looking Good, Girl
Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wore lingerie to her Good American denim launch at Nordstrom in Los Angeles on October 18, 2016. She flashed her chiseled abs in a see-through one-piece teamed with a pair of her new jeans.
Vision of Health
Khloé stunned in a crimson one-piece on the January 2017 cover of
Health magazine. “I did baby steps,” she told the magazine of her weight-loss journey. “I cut out sodas, then I went dairy-free for two weeks, and I lost 11 pounds. Now I only drink almond milk. I love cheese, which is hard, but if I want to lose weight quickly, dairy-free is the way to go. It’s not even a diet anymore.”
Revenge Body host wowed in a nearly naked dress at the Angel Ball hosted by Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation For Cancer Research in NYC on November 21, 2016. Days earlier, Khloe said exercise helped her get through her split from Lamar Odom. “I was always overweight as a kid,” she said in a clip for her new show. “If I was sad or stressed out, I would eat. I had to learn how to then put all of my energy into something positive and healthy for me, which is how I fell in love with working out.”

Eating on Her Terms
“I absolutely encourage cheat meals,” Khloe (pictured here on May 15, 2017) recently told
Us. “I don’t deprive myself. I think everything in moderation. I love to work out, so I’m the type of girl, if I want to go have drinks with my girlfriends tonight, I’m like, ‘OK, I’m just gonna do an extra 30 minutes of cardio tomorrow.’ To me I would rather eat what I want, have the wine and work out a little harder. That’s my mentality.”

Amid widespread speculation that she was pregnant, Khloe walked through LAX airport in an oversized camouflage jacket on December 8, 2017. Just 12 days later, she announced she was expecting on Instagram with a photo of her bare stomach being held from behind by boyfriend Tristan Thompson. “My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!” she wrote, adding, “Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned!”

Khloe showed off her bump at around eight months pregnant on March 7, 2018. About a month earlier, she revealed that she’d continued exercising throughout her pregnancy, with altered sessions. “Of course, I can’t go as hard as I did before, and I really do miss my intense workouts,” she wrote on her app. “Honestly, though, I’m just happy I still have the energy! But there is another thing I miss: my pre-workout energy drinks! They made me wired in the best way possible, LOL. My workouts are definitely not the same without them, but I’m proud of myself for staying so mentally strong right now!”
White hot! At the November 11, 2018 People’s Choice Awards, Khloe showed off her body in a sleeveless gown with a high slit. In July, she revealed to fans that she’d lost 33 pounds in the three months after welcoming True on April 12, 2018. “After I had True, I didn’t put any pressure on myself to lose the baby weight. I just wanted to get back to my regular routine from before I got pregnant, which was working out five to six times a week,” she wrote on her app. As it had often been before, the gym was her happy place. “I never compare myself to other women as every woman has their own journey. We also all have different priorities in our day-to-day lives. One of mine is having that one hour where I can be selfish and alone in my place of refuge,” she added. “Exercise is something I’ve always used to maintain my sanity and relieve stress. And, now that I have a baby, I still want to keep something that’s my time, my space, something I’m doing for myself.”

Reclaiming Her Figure
On November 14, 2018, Khloe showed off her post-baby body once again in a cinched leather jacket, leggings and thigh-high boots. Trainer Gunnar Peterson, who had worked with the star for years told
Us, “She definitely gets it. She gets the blueprint. She gets the template… Khloé’s work ethic, that’s what doesn’t change. She understands that [working out], it’s a lifestyle.”
Stepping Into 2019 Like
On her January 14, 2019 appearance with her sisters Kim and Khloe on
Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Khloe wowed in a white pantsuit with no shirt underneath! Her trainer Don-A-Matrix told Us that same month that he trained Khloe with her NBA star beau post-baby! “I had her working out with Tristan, ‘cause her main thing was more weight loss,” he told Us. “So I was doing a lot of conditioning for him, to get him ready for the season, so that type of workout worked for her also. So when I had him running sprints uphill, that worked for her also. When I had him doing performance-enhancing exercises, the performance-enhancing exercises worked for her also because her main thing was just trying to get back to the weight and the size before the baby.”

Slaying After Another Cheating Scandal
She’s not letting Tristan Thompson hold her back! After it was revealed on February 19, 2019 that her love publicly cheated on her again — hooking up with her sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods — Khloé hit the town in a sexy outfit just one day later. Showing off her small waist and curves in fitted, high-waisted pants and a PrettyLittleThing crop top at the fashion line’s Melrose store opening, Khloe sent a strong message to the father of her daughter: I’m a confident and independent woman. Says an onlooker: “She looked amazing and kept a great smile. If you didn’t know anything going on, it would look as though nothing is affecting her. She had a special glow to her.”

‘Revenge’ Is All Hers
It’s no coincidence that the
Revenge Body With Khloé Kardashian host is looking better than ever at 35! In a new promo shot for season 3, premiering July 7, 2019, Koko’s denim jumpsuit shows off the slim waist and curves she worked hard to reclaim after welcoming her daughter, True, in April 2018. “It’s a challenge after a baby,” Khloé tells Us of staying fit. “Your body shifts and my hips are wider than before and that’s a big adjustment for me … but I’m very proud of where I am now, and I like to enjoy where I am now and not always harp on what I can do next.” In fact, post-baby, she has a different workout mind-set: “You take it day by day,” she adds. “But yes, I always want to stay in a healthy place where I feel good about myself. If you stay ready, you never have to get ready.”

Her Best Beach Bod!
“This summer I have been focused on ME,” the
KUWTK star gushed after showing off her toned bikini body and twinning with daughter True on Instagram in August 2019. “Me from within. Mind. Body. Soul.” An insider previously explained to Us that Khloé was focusing on “looking forward to the future, not the past” when it came to her relationship with Thompson and that she was “doing really well” despite the former couple’s past drama.
Two years after giving birth to her daughter, the fitness fanatic opened up about how her weight loss journey has changed since becoming a mom. “If you’re trying to lose a significant amount of weight, diet and exercise go hand in hand,” she explained during a May 2020 Poosh livestream. “Now I’m in my weight vicinity goal — I’m around 150 — it goes up a little. When it goes into the high 140s, I’m like, ‘Woo!’ It’s a dream.” While she admitted to being a fan of “anything True’s eating,” like snacks and quesadillas, the reality star tries to be mindful of her meals no matter what. “You never know if tomorrow’s happening, so I would rather put more effort into the gym than the kitchen,” she said.

Trolls went wild over a May 2020 photo of Khloé’s hairstyle, a light brown wavy trim that framed her face in a majorly different way. After causing a major stir on social media for her ever-changing look, an insider revealed that the
Revenge Body host “doesn’t care about the backlash she’s been getting from fans saying she doesn’t look like herself in her recent photos.” Despite criticism, Khloé “thinks she looks great” and “does not care what people think as long as she’s happy.”

Back to Brown
In honor of her 36th birthday, the
Strong Looks Better Naked author showed off her new dark brown hairstyle with a series of “glam” snapshots. “I’m loving my brown hair,” she wrote via Instagram in June 2020. “I never thought I would say that lol blonde still owns my heart but this brown is giving me a little something right now.” Soon after posting her sleek new look, Thompson showed her some love, reacting with a series of red hearts and flame emojis in the comments.
