On how she started working out: u201cIt started around 2012. I was having a hard time with [husband at-the-time NBA star] Lamar [Odom]. It was toward the end of our union| and there was so much drama. I needed a release. At first it was so hard. It was baby steps| but I started feeling so much better. Iu2019ve known Gunnar [Peterson] since I was 15. My mom would take me to school| but I would have to go early for her training session| and Iu2019d see Puff Daddy| Jennifer Lopez| and Cameron Diaz. So when I was like| u2018Iu2019m going to [start] a fitness routine|u2019 thatu2019s who I called.u201d

On indulging: “”I love treating myself. Iu2019m a foodie. If I could control what I eat| I would have the best body ever. But because I have no self-control| and I donu2019t really care to have it| I have to work harder. I would rather work out harder and eat what I want| in moderation. Iu2019m not going to eat a whole cake| but last night I had pizza. If I want a pizza| Iu2019m gonna have it. So I had pizza last night and it made me very happy.””

On hating to exercise when she first started: u201cThe first 45 days youu2019re like| u2018F*ck this sh*t.u2019 Youu2019re exhausted| youu2019re sore| and I actually felt fatter because I was swollen. If you keep going| youu2019re eventually like| u2018Wow| is that an indentation on my arm? Yeah| itu2019s a revenge body. But itu2019s just as much for all my critics who called me u2018the fat oneu2019 for my entire existence.u201d

On the enviable genetics of younger sisters Kendall and Kylie: u201cIu2019m not going to put on a bikini| sit on the floor with my legs crossed| and eat a burger. When I see my little sisters do that| Iu2019m like| u2018Ugh| these bitches.u2019 I know theyu2019re not doing it on purpose. This is how they really eat and itu2019s so annoying.””
