Kourtney Kardashian called her 'super skinny' old photos 'cringey': 'When I'm super skinny, just know I'm not happy'
Kourtney Kardashian opened up about how IVF was changing her body on Thursday's "The Kardashians."
She said that "super skinny" old photos of her were "cringey."
She said she used to be focused on the number on the scale but said if she's too skinny she's "not happy."
Kourtney Kardashian Barker got honest about body image, self-esteem, and her mental health on Thursday's episode of Hulu's "The Kardashians." She admitted that she found "super skinny" old photos of herself to be "cringey."
While preparing for her Bustle cover photo shoot, she spoke about how her IVF journey was affecting her body. She said it's taken her time to feel "comfortable and happy" with the changes, presumably referring to gaining weight.
She said that in "every photo" she posts online, people think she's pregnant, and while she and now-husband Travis Barker "wish that," she confirmed she wasn't pregnant at the time the episode was filmed.
Kourtney said that Travis tells her "every day" that she's "perfect" exactly the way she is.
"Having a partner who's so supportive of me and always complimenting me no matter what, it's just helped me to really embrace the changes, and actually to the point where I love the changes now," she said in a confessional interview.
"My ass is amazing," Kourtney told the team helping her get ready for her photoshoot. "I'm so into my thicker body."
Kourtney said that looking at old pictures of herself has made her realize just how far she's come in life, emotionally. "I looked at photos of my body when I was so skinny it is cringey," she said while getting ready.
In her confessional interview, she elaborated on how she thought the way she looked in those photos was indicative of her state of mind at the time.
"When I was super skinny, it's a time that I was super anxious," she said. "Not about eating, not about staying at a certain weight. But just in toxic relationships."
Before marrying Travis in May, Kourtney was most notably in an on-and-off-again relationship with Scott Disick, with whom she shares three kids: Mason, 12, Penelope, 10, and Reign, 7.
"I used to always say this," she continued to the camera. "When I'm super skinny, just know I'm not happy."
She told everyone at the photo shoot that she used to be "stuck on the number" on the scale but now she tells herself, "you're perfect, you just need new pants."
Kourtney has been celebrating her body more on the show. In an earlier episode of "The Kardashians" season two, she shared an anecdote with her mom Kris Jenner and Jenner's boyfriend Corey Gamble that showed just how comfortable she is in her skin.
"Dude, this morning I did all the dishes completely butt naked," she confessed.
Season two of "The Kardashians" airs Thursdays on Hulu.
