Rob Kardashian is blaming milkshakes for his weight gain. The 28-year-old posted a Thursday throwback picture of himself drinking the sweet beverage on Instagram on Thursday, Aug. 27.

“Started right here with these milkshakes hahaha…#throwbackthursday,” Kris Jenner’s only son captioned the #TBT pic. The photo is from June 2011, when a slimmer-looking Kardashian dined at Sugar Factory American Brasserie in Las Vegas.

During a May episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner revealed that Rob had gained 100 pounds in over a year. “I cry myself to sleep literally every night worrying about [Rob],” the momager said of her reclusive son, who has refused the family’s pleas to seek help. “It’s breaking my heart.”

The Arthur George designer, who has been struggling with depression and his weight for years, has been vocal about working out recently. Earlier this week, he shared an Instagram photo after crossing paths with his half-sister Kylie Jenner and boyfriend Tyga while on a walk in their shared Calabasas, Calif. neighborhood. On Aug. 14 older sister Kim revealed she and her brother worked up a sweat hiking as well. 

“Just went on the hardest hike ever today with @robkardashian,” she tweeted. On Aug. 25 she also shared, “Rise & Grind! Workout time!!!!! With @robkardashian.”

“He’s always in and out. He makes it work with his schedule and he’s on his path,” his trainer Gunnar Peterson tells Us Weekly of Rob’s workout regimen. “In the scheme of life this is a chapter, it’s not The Book Of Rob. Watch him be better than ever! Watch! I’m taking all bets!”

As sister and roommate Khloe previously explained, Rob has his good days and his bad days.

“Rob definitely has his ups and downs, and he’s been struggling for the past year and a half, maybe two years, which I think we’ve all had those times in our life,” Khloe told E! News in April. “He’s been working out a little and trying to get his groove back. And he acknowledges it! He’s aware that he’s very introverted and of course not the way he used to be. I think being aware is probably the best thing.”
