Khloé Kardashian worked hard for her fit physique. While speaking to a cast member on Revenge Body season 2, the 33-year-old reality star revealed that her famous family pressured her to slim down so she would more accurately reflect their public image.

“I’m a huge believer of it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it,” the show host, who is six months pregnant with her and Tristan Thompson’s first child together, a baby boy, told a contestant on the series. Kardashian then recalled her family members telling her, “‘Khloe, you got to lose weight cause you’re really hurting the brand.’”

Although the Strong Looks Better Naked author realized that her clan was coming from a good place, their words affected her all the same. “I understand that was coming from my management side of my family, but it does hurt,” she said.

The E! star, who has been vocal about her weightloss journey, has significantly toned down since first stepping into the spotlight in 2007. Kardashian told Complex magazine in August 2015 that she was down 35 pounds, but her fitness journey didn’t stop there. While speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2016, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who is now in the best shape of her life, revealed that she started slimming down accidentally — after her tumultuous split from ex-husband Lamar Odom, Kardashian would hit the gym to de-stress.

“I never thought about the number [on the scale],” she told the magazine at the time. “When I started seeing that I could lose weight — because I just thought my body would never change — I started taking it more seriously and eating better.”

Revenge Body season 2 premieres on E! Sunday, January 7, at 10 p.m. ET.
