Khloe Kardashian's "Revenge Body" premiered on E! last month.
In the span of three weeks, the weight-loss show has already featured eight different contestants — with eight very different stories.
One woman wanted to shed pounds to get "revenge" on her mother, who applied so much pressure on her to be thin that she ultimately turned to drugs to maintain her weight. Another participant hoped to drop a few sizes to impress the ex-boyfriend who broke up with him after he had a substantial weight gain.
But no matter what heartbreaking story contestants bring to the show, Kardashian has proven that she will always try to "relate" to participants by stating that she was once the "chubby sister" in her family.
Although Kardashian has made major strides in her body transformation, her old label still weighs heavy.
As the family shot to fame, Kardashian's body was picked apart and judged in comparison to her smaller sisters. In an interview with Shape magazine, she revealed that her frame was once described as a "Honda," compared to her older sister Kim's body which was deemed a "Ferrari."
"I'm a woman with curves, and what I would say was average size at the time," the reality star recalled last year. "I felt so shamed."
The constant comparison has clearly caused major damage to her self-esteem, as Kardashian still can't seem to shed her "fat sister" identity.
"I always kind of remember the chubby girl in me," she revealed at Fortune‘s Most Powerful Women Next Gen conference in November.
But fans are frustrated that Kardashian keeps trying to classify herself as a "former fat girl" — even though the reality star has never been bigger than a size 12.
In December, Kardashian condemned her former size-12 body to Shape magazine, crying out "God forbid!" at the memory of being that "big."
When "Revenge Body" returns next week, hopefully Kardashian will have finally found a way to bring others up without bringing herself down.
Because there's so much more to Kardashian and her fitness journey. She shouldn't have to belittle her "old" body to prove a point.
It goes to show that just because someone loses weight, it doesn't mean they gain self-confidence.
