Here’s the thing about Demi Lovato – she speaks bluntly and tells it like it is. She doesn’t hold back and that’s pretty damn inspiring. In a world that judges everyone and everything, she makes sure to let people know that they are not alone.
The actress/singer has been blunt about her addictions and her eating disorder recovery. Her latest Instagram post highlighted her stretch marks in glitter paint and talked about her recovery from an eating disorder.
“I used to genuinely believe recovery from an eating disorder wasn’t real. That everyone was faking or secretly relapsing behind closed doors. ‘Surely she throws up here and there,’ ‘she can’t POSSIBLY accept her cellulite’… those we’re just a few of the things that I used to tell myself growing up,” Demi started the post.
She continued, “I’m so grateful that I can honestly say for the first time in my life – my dietitian looked at me and said ‘This is what eating disorder recovery looks like.’ In honor of my gratitude for the place I’m in today, this was a lil shoot I did by myself in quarantine this summer when I wanted to celebrate my stretch marks instead of being ashamed of them.”
“I started wearing actual glitter paint on my stretch marks to celebrate my body and all of it’s features (whether society views them as good OR bad) My stretch marks aren’t going away so might as well throw a lil glitter on em’ amiright? 😝✨ Also let this be a reminder to anyone who doesn’t think it’s possible: IT ACTUALLY IS 😱😱😩😩☺️☺️ YOU CAN DO IT. I BELIEVE IN YOU. 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 💖I LOVE YOU ✨,” Demi concluded the post.
She posted both edited versions and non-edited versions of the pics.
Personally, I love that she shares this all with us. She is helping others with her truth and bluntness and I respect it.
