For the past decade, Khloé Kardashian’s weight-loss ride has been just as public as it has been remarkable (she’s said to have shed an incredible 30 pounds in the past few years). But for the 33-year-old soon-to-be mother, the transformation goes much further than number on the scale.

In an Instagram photo posted today, Kardashian shared a side-by-side comparison of herself from 2010 and a more recent shot (before her pregnancy), reflecting both on her very personal journey and the one looking back at her in the mirror, and it’s about so much more than just her body.
“Sometimes it’s hard for me to post these transformation posts only because I can’t imagine my life being this unhealthy again. Never would I ever consider myself fat, but I would consider myself unhealthy mentally/physically and not knowing my true value,” she writes, never losing sight of her body-positive image. “For me, my transformation journey started from within. I needed to heal myself from the inside out. Once I started putting myself first, everything started falling into place. My life transformed a few years ago when I made the decision to stop existing and start living.”

The uplifting words then turned toward her fans and anyone who can relate to her journey: “Choose your life. Don’t let anybody else decide for you! We are no victims to life but we can become victims and prisoners to the people that we choose to surround ourselves with if we allow them to break us and consume us. Never be afraid to put yourself first! Never choose comfort over your own well-being! Never forget that fate loves the fearless! Today’s wisdom was yesterday’s pain. Tomorrow’s happiness is today’s bravery!”
Kardashian ended her post with a nod to herself and her incredible dedication. “I am so proud of myself for being stronger than I’ve ever been-mind body and soul. I am even prouder of myself that I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so many years. I broke that cycle and I’m happier than I have ever been! You can do this!! Start from within and nothing can stop you. Elevate yourself- mind body and soul.”
Considering the post has already gotten 1.3 million likes and racked up more than 16,000 inspiring, thankful and back-patting comments in just a few hours, it’s safe to say Kardashian’s body-positive mindset has made quite an impact on those in similar situations.
