Demi Lovato on Body Image: “I Feel Beautiful”
Her personal struggles with eating disorders, substance abuse and self-harm are well-documented, but these days Demi Lovato is in much happier spirits.
The “Heart Attack” songstress posted four photos from her MTV Video Music Awards appearances over the years, and she told her Facebook fans that she’s finally in a healthy place.
Lovato wrote, “I remember the day I wore the dress in the very first picture. I remember asking for spanx to flatten my stomach because I use to feel so heavy and ‘fat.’ Now looking at this picture, you can clearly see my hip bones. It makes me sad because I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could've been living the happy and healthy life I live today.”
She added, “Fortunately looking at the picture of myself in the red dress yesterday, I not only feel so grateful for the love and support I've had from fans, friends and family, but... I also feel.. beautiful. I’m so excited to live my life the way I deserve to and to the complete fullest.”
