It's gotta be hard to be Khloe Kardashian. OK, before you say "wah wah wah" -- hear me out: People are always questioning whether she's actually a Kardashian. She's a skyscraper compared to her sisters. The hardest thing of all, she's always called "the big one." All the while -- the girl is totally average weight. In fact, I'd bet she weighs less than the recommended weight for her height (she's 5'10'', people).
The youngest Dash doll spoke with Glamour magazine about her body confidence recently, and she's left me in awe. "A few years ago I lost 30 pounds, and people still wanted to criticize," said Khloe. "And honestly, I’m happy with myself if I’m a little heavier. I realized: Why am I trying to conform to someone else’s idea of beauty? I think I’m beautiful either way."
Yep, it's official. I have a new favorite Kardashian. Sorry, Kourt.
Khloe is real and that's why I like her. She knows she's not stick thin. She also knows, though, that the pressure to be stick thin is just unrealistic. If celebrities always caved into the pressure from the media, we'd have a bunch of personality-less phonies walking around wearing the same designer clothes. Man, that's no fun to think about.

What's important here is what Khloe's recognized: The best version of herself isn't necessarily what everyone else thinks it should be. Khloe feels comfortable in her skin being a little bigger, and I think that's absolutely beautiful and totally kickass. Her attitude is something I can respect, and one that I hope despite media pressure, she holds on to.
Do you think you're most beautiful at your skinniest, or otherwise?
