In the last episode of ‘The Kardashians’, on Thursday (6), Kourtney Kardashian, 43, talked about her relationship with her body. The businesswoman revealed that the weight gain was caused due to IVF attempts with husband Travis Barker, 46.
Kourtney was getting ready to start the Bustle magazine cover photos when she started to open up about her curvier body with her crew. “So obviously my body’s changed. But it was all of the hormones that the doctors put me on,” the Lemme founder said on the show. “Eight months of IVF treatment has definitely taken a toll on my body mentally and physically. I think it’s taken me a lot to get me to the place of feeling really comfortable and happy with the changes.”
Kourtney confesses that reading negative comments about her body on social media is difficult, but that Barker always tries to boost her self-esteem. “Every day, Travis is like, ‘You’re perfect,'” she said. “Having a partner who is so supportive of me and always complimenting me, no matter what, it’s just helped me to really embrace the changes and actually to the point where I love the changes now,” Kardashian added.
“I’m so into my thicker body. I also love being curvier. It’s just channeling that queen energy and embracing the woman that I am”, said the founder of Poosh the episode.
Kourtney goes on to reflect on her past weight. “When I was super skinny, it’s like a time when I was super anxious… Not about eating. Not about staying at a certain weight, but just in toxic relationships, I used to always say this: ‘When I’m super skinny, just know I’m not happy’”, she adds.
