Khloe Kardashian's body speaks for itself when it comes to how hard she's worked over the last few years to tone up and get healthy...but she still wouldn't mind shoving a big middle finger in a few people's faces.

The 31-year-old reality star shows off her fit figure for Harper's Bazaar, looking stunning in a drastically different style than we're used to: minimal makeup, nude nails and no shoes. The gorgeous spread would cause even the meanest of critics to shut their mouths, but Khloe admits she went through some rough times to get to this point.

"I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I've lost weight," she told the publication, in between takes. "Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney [Kardashian] and Kim [Kardashian], but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn't even that crazy big!"

She even admits that some stylists refused to work with her all together. "People actually said, 'I just can't work with you'—because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course."

Well, they're likely kicking themselves today as Khloe has become one of the most talked about women when it comes to representing healthy, beautiful bodies. And unfortunately, she's not one to forget.

When those same stylists approach her to work with her these days, her response is point-blank: "I'm just like, 'F--k you. I'm not going to reward your bad behavior!'"

This new-found confidence Khloe portrays has been a longtime coming—after months and months of hard work in the gym. In fact, it all started when things got rough between her and Lamar Odom, and she had no where else to go but the gym.

"My home [with Odom] was dark and toxic," she admitted. "At the time, my family didn't know what I was going through. It was the biggest secret I've kept. I just needed a place to go."

When she saw the pounds start to drip off, she began treating her body better and better. Now, she's a total workout fiend.

"I'm a beast at the gym. I'm super competitive and I'm a sweater. I'm like, 'Don't f--k with me and don't mess up my routine,'" she laughed while telling the publication.

She also enjoys working out with her sisters, especially Kourtney, her push her to do her best. "I love that we can work out together. Because Kim sort of prances and is super cute and gorge, while Kourtney and I are dripping wet."
