Rob Kardashian has been struggling with his weight for the last couple of years, and on Twitter last year, the reality star turned sock designer acknowledged he was “fat.”

Although the shocking tweet above, which was shared by Rob Kardashian in May 2014, was quite sad to see, the former Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has reportedly made serious progress in the year-and-a-half since the message was posted.
In September, an Us Weekly report claimed Rob Kardashian had lost 15 pounds after taking on a healthy diet and fitness plan with the help of celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson. According to the magazine, Rob Kardashian was surrounded by supportive friends and family members, including his sisters, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, who often work out with him, and his brother-in-law, Kanye West, who has been a motivator in Rob Kardashian’s weight loss.
The magazine also reported that Rob Kardashian was motivated by a $2 million-per-year paycheck for his potential return to Keeping Up With The Kardashians for the series’ upcoming 11th season, which is expected to happen later this year or early next year.
Also in September, Radar Online reported Rob Kardashian had lost 20 pounds.
“[Rob Kardashian] is constantly working out with Gunnar Peterson who helped Khloe and Kourtney shed all of their weight. He’s lost 20 pounds so far! [Rob Kardashian] is working out almost every single day now and he is doing lots of cardio. He’s been hiking, jogging and walking.”
The source went on to allege Rob Kardashian had cut alcohol out of his diet entirely, and had been since focusing on a healthier meal plan, consisting of high-protein/low-carb food choices.
“[Rob Kardashian] wants to lose even more weight and wants to, literally, shock everyone and silence the haters because he says he is going to be ‘hotter and richer than ever before.’ The whole entire family is now behind him. He is in constant communication with everyone and there is no longer any bad blood.”
Two months later, following what is believed to be a weight loss of at least 20 pounds, Rob Kardashian has surfaced on Instagram, and from the looks of things, he’s lost even more weight. On November 3, Rob Kardashian shared a photo of himself and his sister, Kendall Jenner, wishing her a Happy Birthday, and in the photo, Rob Kardashian looks slimmer than he’s been for the last couple of years.
Although it is unclear whether or not the photo of Rob Kardashian is current, his full tattoo sleeve seems to hint it was taken recently.

Last month, Rob Kardashian’s older sister, Kourtney Kardashian, shared a photo of him lying on his back on a couch, and right away, many fans were taken back by the amount of weight he appeared to have lost. However, it was later revealed that the photo of Rob Kardashian was actually taken several years ago, when Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were still married. As many fans pointed out, the photo shared by Kourtney of Rob Kardashian clearly showed that he was sporting only a half of a tattoo sleeve, which he added to years ago.
