Khloe Kardashian is finally coming clean about her journey to lose the post-baby weight after giving birth to her daughter True- and it wasn’t as easy as she made it seem.
During the season three premiere of her show Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian, the reality star sat down with her mom, Kris Jenner, to discuss her fitness journey from the past year. She got candid about just how much weight she put on while expecting daughter True, now one.

#ad Ok you guys… I’ve been putting in work, adding in @flattummyco meal replacement shakes and I’m seriously feeling so good. My energy is up, my cravings are controlled and I actually feel like I’m a total tummy knockout. You need to go check them out while their 30% OFF sale is on. Ps: how CUTE is this shaker bottle?!
"Well, I gained 40 pounds during my pregnancy. And I was 203 pounds when I delivered, which blows my mind," Khloe explained. The mom-of-one went on to admit that she thought shedding the pounds was going to be easier than it was, especially since she’d gotten into such good shape prior to getting pregnant. “You think, 'Oh you're gonna have a baby and all of it's gonna come out.' And then you leave the hospital and you're like, 'What is going on? Why do I still have all this weight?'" Khloe said to Kris.
Kris went on to admit that she felt similarly after having her children. "I put on my jeans thinking, 'I am a Rockstar' and they wouldn't go over my knees," the mom-of-six revealed. "So, it was back to the drawing board. I did not know what to do, I was so disappointed."
Khloe has spent a lot of time in the gym since giving birth to her daughter and now says she weighs even less than she did pre-pregnancy. However, it hasn’t been without its hardships. Most notably, the Good American founder has received backlash for spending so much time in the gym. Some fans have gone so far as to say Khloe’s focus on her body is anti-body positive.
The star addressed the backlash in a video posted to her Snapchat the May after she gave birth. “What I’m annoyed about is that I’ve read a couple of times on Twitter that, you know, they feel that I’m focusing too much on my body," Khloe explained. "But the truth is, I’ve worked out five or six days a week before I got pregnant and that’s my sanctuary and something I love to do.”
The celebrity went on to reveal that, while she did begin working out three weeks postpartum, she only did so with the approval of her doctor. She also maintains her gym time never interferes with the amount of time she spends with baby True. Given how much she posts about her daughter online, we’d say that’s definitely true.
