Rob Kardashian is tired of being overweight and planning to do something about it with the help of his sister, Khloe Kardashian.

According to a new report, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has had enough of his plus-sized self and wants to lose over 50 pounds.

"He hates being big, but he gained all that weight from being depressed," the source told E! News on Aug. 29. "He wants to lose over 50 lbs."

Currently living together, Rob and Khloe have always been close. Throughout Khloe's messy split from Lamar Odom at the end of last year, Rob remained by her side. In the same way, Khloe was by Rob's side as he battled depression, some of which stemmed from the divorce, and packed on the added pounds.

"Rob and [Lamar Odom] were really close, and after Khloé and Lamar split, it was so hard for Rob," the source explained. "He felt like he lost a brother that he had always wanted."

Rob lived with Khloe and Lamar for years, and was often seen at their side, both on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and on Khloe & Lamar, their two season-long spinoff series, which aired from April 10, 2011 to Feb. 19, 2012.

Although Rob missed Kim Kardashian's wedding earlier this year and opted out of a family vacation to Thailand, which recently aired on the show, E! News' source claims Rob is in a much better place with the rest of the Kardashians.

Kris Jenner had "been so worried" about Rob, said the source, but is "very relieved Rob is living with Khloe."

"The whole family is pulling for him," the source added. "Even [Kanye West] has been reaching out to him more and showing he cares. They are all his biggest cheerleaders right now."
