Demi Lovato Celebrates Her Stretch Marks in Candid Post About Her Eating Disorder Recovery
Demi Lovato celebrated her stretch marks and everything she got over in an open Instagram post.
The singer on "Still Have Me" shared a long message about her experience with an eating disorder along with a series of photos of her curves in a black swimsuit.
"I used to genuinely believe that recovery from an eating disorder wasn't real," Lovato began her post on December 24th. "That everyone pretended to be behind closed doors or fell behind secretly." May not accept your cellulite. Those were just a few of the things I said to myself as an adult. "

Lovato continued, "I'm so grateful that for the first time in my life I can honestly say - my nutritionist looked at me and said," This is what Eating Disorder Recovery looks like. "
Photos of Lovatos with stretch marks highlighted in gold accompanied the post, which the 28-year-old pop star explained as an exercise in self-love. "In honor of my gratitude for the place I am today, this was a little shoot I did in quarantine this summer when I wanted to celebrate my stretch marks instead of being ashamed of them," she wrote. "I started wearing real glitter paint on my stretch marks to celebrate my body and all of its properties."
Lovato went on that despite society's opinion, her stretch marks "don't go away" so she might as well hug them for all of their beauty.
Demi Lovato also assured fans that it is possible to recover from an eating disorder, and her experience is proof. "Let this be a reminder for anyone who doesn't think it's possible: IT REALLY IS. YOU CAN DO IT. I believe in you," she wrote.
"This year has been tough ... be gentle with yourself when you slip and think about getting back on track because you are worth the miracle of restoration. I love you," Lovato concluded her message, adding: "Latest pics with no sparkling changes - Instagram versus reality shit, you know?"
This isn't the first time Demi Lovato has reported about her eating disorder this year. In a March 2020 interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, she recounted her relapse in 2018 and explained what led to her eventual overdose and hospitalization.
"My bulimia got really bad and I asked for help. And I wasn't getting the help I needed," Lovato told DeGeneres. “Ultimately, I made the decisions that got me where I am today. You know, it was my actions that put me in the position I am in. "
At that time, she had another important message for viewers at home. "If you go through this, you can do it yourself," Lovato said. "You can get to the other side and it may be bumpy, but you're a 10 out of 10. Don't forget. As long as you take responsibility, you can get past it and learn to love yourself the way you deserve it, to be loved. "
