The eldest Kardashian sibling is no stranger to promoting messages of body positivity. In 2016, the reality TV personality revealed that she won’t use the word “fat” in front of her now 7-year-old daughter Penelope.

“There are so many conversations that we have without thinking the kids are listening,” she told Cosmopolitan at the time. “I just don’t want to start getting anybody self-conscious. They say if a mother is confident about her body that the daughters are way more likely to not have eating disorders.”

After revealing that she weighed only 98 lbs. in 2018, Kardashian posted a message about self-love to her Snapchat. The inspirational poem was a “love note” to her body.

“First of all, I want to say thank you. For the heart you kept beating even when it was broken,” the post read. “For every answer you gave me in my gut. For loving me back even when I didn’t know how to love you. For every time you recovered when I pushed you past our limit. For today, for waking up.”
