Demi Lovato Shows Results of Her Recovery from an Eating Disorder in a Body-Positive Shoot
Demi Lovato is feeling positive vibes about her new banging body. Lovato shared the results of her hard work of getting in shape, and we are here for it; check out her Insta snapshots below.
Demi Lovato showed results of her recovery from an eating disorder in a body-positive shoot. The pop singer took to Instagram to pen down a lengthy motivational message to her 95.3 million followers about body image.
In her photo series post, she wrote, “I used to genuinely believe recovery from an eating disorder wasn’t real. That everyone was faking or secretly relapsing behind closed doors.”
The 28-year-old continued to explain that “surely she throws up here and there,” and that she cannot possibly accept her cellulite. Lovato shared that such thoughts used to run through her mind when growing up.
Now that she has won the struggle, she said that she can now confidently say for the first time in her life that her dietitian looked at her and said, “This is what eating disorder recovery looks like.”
Well done to Lovato as she pulled it off, and for her to show gratitude for the good space that she is in today, she did a shoot by herself to embrace her stretch marks.
The actress motivated her fans and said that for those who do not think it is possible, it is and that she believes in them while cheering them on. The "Camp Rock" actress posed in a black bathing suit with bright, glittered stars in front.
Lovato took her snapshots by the pool as most of the slides show her thighs in gold glitter on her stretch marks. Other snaps show her while laying back as she continued to show off her booty and thighs.
“This year was tough…be gentle on yourself if you slip up and remember to get right back on track because you’re worth the miracle of recovery.”
As she celebrates her stretch marks while opening up about her eating disorder, this is not the first time she got candid about the subject. According to Cosmopolitan, the songwriter previously talked about battling bulimia ever since she was in her teens.
Lovato reportedly revealed that when she was starring on the Disney Channel show “Sonny With A Chance," she was very sick. During a cast reunion, she openly talked about her eating disorder and how she was underweight and was freezing.
The icon added that she would have people come over for meetings during her lunch breaks because she worked extremely hard. Recalling back to that time, she said that she would be covered in a blanket, and people would ask what was wrong with her and say that she is freezing.
Not only that, in 2017, Lovato revealed intimate details about her eating disorder relapse. The “Here We Go Again” singer shared the details on her YouTube documentary “Simply Complicated.”
According to Women's Health, food was still the biggest challenge in Lovato's life at the time. Lovato revealed that she struggled with disordered eating after she had broken up with her then-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama.
It appears that things got worse earlier this year for Lovato; she revealed how trying to recover from her eating disorder led to her drug overdose. According to People, in February, she shared that attempting to recover had a significant impact on her mental health.
The effect was one of the factors that triggered her drug overdose. However, Lovato reportedly said that now her mindset has changed and plans to make her career more body-positive from now on.
