It's hard to believe that anyone blessed with Kardashian genes could possibly feel insecure in the looks department—particularly Khloé:
But she recently talked to People about what it was like to come of age with a body type that was different from her sisters. "Growing up, I was always chubby," she told the magazine. "I knew I didn't look like my sisters and I didn't have those shapes, but I didn't think that was wrong. I had parents who were incredibly loving and nurturing and always made me feel beautiful so I never really questioned that."
Things changed when her family was thrust into the spotlight on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and viewers pegged Khloé as the fat, funny sister—even though she thought she was in good shape, and the characterization wasn't entirely accurate in IRL. "I almost let that take ownership of me. [In reality] I wasn't fat; I wasn't obese. But I would let society make me believe that I was," she told lb People.
Now that Khloé has grown up and carved a niche for herself as the family's fitness buff, losing an estimated 40 pounds in the process, she's much more at peace with her body.
"I don't believe in one size fits all. As long as I can lay my head down at night, that's all that matters. It's not about fitting someone else's standards," she told People.
