Over the last year, Khloé Kardashian has not been shy about her physical and emotional transformation — taking her stress out at the gym and ultimately evolving into the strongest version of herself she never thought was possible. Now, she's on a mission to help others have the same kind of life-changing experience on her new show, Revenge Body, which premieres Thursday, Jan. 12.
Ahead of the show's debut, Khloé has opened up about her emotional journey, and it's a powerful message that so many people can be inspired by.
"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! But now I can't see myself ever stopping! I am completely honored and taking my role seriously in helping motivate and teach people what I had to learn to better myself from the inside out," she captioned the photo above. "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!"
On the show, Khloé gives 16 contestants access to the high-end Hollywood personal trainers, beauty professionals, and health experts to help guide them on a journey of confidence and overall positivity. But it's her own experience that inspired her to help these people, and her message can help anyone who needs a motivational reminder.
"If you've lost your motivation don't beat yourself up about it, negative thoughts only turn into negative realities. By keeping positive about your body, your inner health, your mental sanity, your fitness and what you're trying to achieve, you're way more likely to succeed. My fitness journey was for myself and myself alone. On my terms and on my timeline! Cheers to us becoming better than we were yesterday! #RevengeBody," she wrote.
While Khloé has received some criticism about the idea of the show and getting a "revenge body" for someone other than yourself, she is hoping the contestants will learn that the transformation is not exactly about getting back at someone but finding self-love and appreciating the journey it takes to get there.
