Khloé Kardashian has revealed that she was told to lose weight by her famous family. The reality TV star - who is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Tristan Thompson – has famously slimmed down over the past year, and she says it was after hearing that it was "really hurting the brand". While talking to a contestant on her TV show, Revenge Body season 2, the 33-year-old revealed that she could understand that it was coming from the "management side" but that it still "hurt".  

She said: "I'm a huge believer of it's not what you say, it's how you say it." She then recalled that her family members had said: "Khloé, you got to lose weight cause you're really hurting the brand." The mother-to-be then added: "I understand that was coming from my management side of my family, but it does hurt."

Khloé previously described herself as "the chubby one" of her family while reflecting on her body transformation. In an Instagram post from 2017, the reality TV star admitted that she never thought she would develop a love of fitness. Sharing before and after photographs of her transformation, Khloé wrote: "If you were to ask me five years ago if I ever saw myself being completely in love with fitness and health. That I would be an inspiration to many others, that I would be the push that others needed to find their way. I would've laughed in your face. Me? The chubby one? No way!"

The star continued: "But now I can't ever see myself stopping! I am completely honoured and taking my role seriously in helping motivate and teach people what I had to learn to better myself from the inside out. Becoming stronger mentally so I can't let the little things break me down. I see myself only getting better and better! I can't believe how far I have come! I almost can't believe that was me!" --
